The aqua blues and gray-greens in this renovated Palermo apartment echo the colors of the sea.

LYGA architecture and design studio was founded by Lycia and Gaia Trapani, two Sicilian sisters with a strong preference for Mediterranean aesthetics. The studio often works with historical architecture and restored materials to create stunning, colorful, contemporary homes.

This 2,691-square-foot apartment, which the sisters named Casa a Nord-Est (house in the north east), is located within an 18th-century building. The home was previously owned by a seaman who docked his boats at Palermo’s La Cala port, which is located in front of the building.
