Middle Eastern Palace
Bringing the cream of high end residential craftsmanship from Europe into this palace in the heart of Qatar represents a respectful merging of Eastern and Western design traditions. The result is a superbly refined version of palatial style, with a palette that serves as a luxurious respite from the desert setting. In the welcoming reception area and the sociable living and dining spaces, spectacular central lights appear to float in mid-air, casting a magical, ethereal glow. Throughout, the abundant use of white, bookmatched marble and champagne shades feel exceptionally calming. In the double living room, the deep pile of a bespoke rug in shades of deepest blue acts as a reminder of the sea. High-end finishes in bedrooms take an imaginative turn, reflecting individual interests, be it the way exquisite De Gournay wallcoverings conjure up the natural world, or sailing motifs subtly reference a love of ocean adventures.
