Merging modern design with respect for the environment and local culture, the designer created a multi-layered space with state-of-the-art technology, custom-made items, and unique Arab elements. From the impressive public space to the intimate balcony with a breathtaking view, every detail was carefully thought out to create the perfect holiday atmosphere. The modern design style uses liquid metal, wood, and leather to create a unique and eclectic space, with several museum pieces adding a special touch.
About Andromeda Reborn
In recent years, Israel has experienced a surge of perfectly designed projects that captivate through meticulous planning and attention to detail. Interior designer Keren Niv Toledano’s holiday apartment in the Andromeda Reborn project in Jaffa provides a stunning example. The design of this charming apartment is uncompromising, treating the entire space as a holistic unit, with each layer reviewed in detail and implemented with love and care.
Combining the Old with the New
Keren Niv Toledano’s design of the holiday apartment for a family of four adult children brilliantly combined the old with the new, with state-of-the-art technology and custom-made items as well as several masterpieces that pay respect to the original Arabic architecture and art of the area. Ancient ceramic pots and museum pieces enrich the space, creating a multi-layered atmosphere.
Spacious and Bright Living
Upon entry, the public space is revealed. A partially visible and partially hidden entrance hall creates a break and a dimension of intimacy. The kitchen was planned as two linear lines, with two dishwashers, two sinks and two ovens to accommodate the family’s kosher requirements. The living room features a light blue-green designed carpentry piece and a transparent glass table with oak legs. The dining area has a chocolate colored brushed oak table and cognac colored leather armchairs.
Relaxing Balcony Space
The intimate balcony is tiled with Jaffa stone, offering spectacular views of the authentic low buildings, the beach and the Mediterranean Sea. Iron furniture withstands the winds, sun, humidity and temperature changes.
Guest Bathroom and Bedrooms
The guest bathroom is dramatic and dark with a black and brass theme, with a floating black and white marble sink and two ornate alabaster and brushed brass light fixtures. The master bedroom is in natural desert brown with a weaved linen wallpaper headboard, nightstands of iron and lilac stone, and luxurious and pampering textiles. The master bathroom has rose gold elements and a large mirror that creates a double-space effect. The guest suite features denim blue wallpaper, elements in shades of nude and aqua, and earthy brown tiles with rose gold elements.
