New York Apartment in Mexican Style by Dmitry Reutov
Mexico in Manhattan
When Russian interior designer Dmitry Reutov was given carte blanche to renovate a 55 square metre apartment in New York, his thoughts, surprisingly perhaps, turned to the bright sunshine and saturated hues of Mexico.
As soon as you enter the apartment your senses go into overdrive, starting with the exuberant colour scheme: mint green floor and dusty pink walls with gradient wallpaper for contrast and touches of terrazzo and copper for accent. Voluptuous curves abound, from the furniture and window arches to the lights and the lozenge-shaped kitchen counter, adding a sense of drama and whimsy.
This Instagram-friendly apartment is not just fun and good looks. There are numerous clever features such as the stepped storage unit behind the bed, accessed via a tall arched door, and the orange-tinted transparent circular opening between the kitchen and the hallway. And how can we ignore the profusion of cacti, standing majestically against the candy pink walls? We can't think of a more surprising and inspiring respite from the concrete and leaden skies of the city outside.

Summer is in full swing and our thoughts turn to holidays. What better place is there to enjoy the sun than in a pristine villa perched on the cliffs of Santorini, with stunning views of the sparkling sea and multiple plunge pools to temper the blistering heat?
