Odeon Tower, Monaco's newest luxury apartment block and home to the world's most expensive apartment, is now open and offering plenty of properties as luxurious as your superyacht. Of course, once you've found your perfect home you need to make sure it has a suitably elegant interior and Sabrina Monteleone of Sabrina Monte-Carlo — a design firm with a wealth of experience in superyacht and private jet interiors — is the ideal choice. Here she takes us on a tour and explains the design rationale behind her Odeon Tower show apartment.
The Living Room
The starting point when choosing the decoration was the existing marble floor, enhanced by touches of grey, bronze and blue, which were all designed by Pinto Paris. Using blue was an obvious choice for this apartment because of its breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea and the cloudless blue sky of Monaco. Blue is the colour of the Cote d’Azur, of the bright, long summer days and it blends well with nearly every other colour.
Two beautiful velvet armchairs, a beige nubuck sofa and round and square dark wooden tables are all positioned on a beige wool carpet, which is tone on tone with the marble floor. This creates an elegant continuation of the dining room and visually enlarges the already vast room. The living room is designed to enhance the calm, peaceful feeling of the apartment, thus bringing a reassuring sensation to visitors. The neutral colours are based on those often found on board yachts which make small areas look larger and more welcoming.
