EXPLORING THE INSPIRATIONAL; THE INTERIOR DESIGN & STYLE BLOG BY SARAH MAILER

Inspiration was rife in Mykonos - from the hotel's relaxed Myconian/Ibizian aesthetic to the breathtakingly beautiful Elia Beach. Every evening we would meander along the idyllic pedestrianised streets of the Old Town, famous for its smooth, stoney paths, overhanging trees and sloping white-washed buildings.

Including prestigious 'meet-the-designer' talks and presentations, highly skilled artisan demonstrations and showroom events aplenty, this was set to be a more jam-packed and unmissable event than ever before.
