The sun-soaked town of Portofino, Italy was once a small fishing village. Now it attracts the yachts-and-summer-home crowd. A Mediterranean villa clings to the hillside, built in a style that launched a thousand McMansions in the United States.
Who needs dry land to be at home and what could be better than waking up in a new place every day? This 40-foot-long vessel sleeps seven, offering enough space for the homeowners to have guests and can be seen only on HGTV’s House Hunters International.
The inspiration for this chic living room was the interior of a yacht. Custom dyed anigre wood with a high-poly finish accomplishes the nautical feel. The terrace is made to feel like part of the interior thanks to a NanaWall system that opens it up and a light wall that draws the eyes outward.
A vintage yacht-inspired bar with beadboard, louvered paneling and outrigger brackets evokes a 1930s nautical feel and is the centerpiece of the great room. Exposed wood beams bring architectural detail to the ceiling, while reclaimed elm adds rustic style to the floor.
