An imaginative eclectic approach is evident in the design makeover of this historic apartment in Ayazpaşa House in Beyoğlu. Located in the European sector in Istanbul, Turkey, this fabulous building was originally designed for those who could afford an elegant lifestyle.
While the main structure of the living space remains pretty much intact, the luxury apartment interior design has been brought right up to date. The interior has been styled by the Turkish designers ‘Autoban’, who have used numerous creative tactics to ensure this interior has a unique personality.
The first thing that is evident in this luxury apartment interior design is that the wonderful decorative features, characteristic of European architecture in the 19th century, have been brought back to life. It is refreshing to see a contemporary apartment with this wealth of period ornamentation. Rather than hiding the decorative elements if anything these have been celebrated and exaggerated.
Historic Apartment in Istanbul gets a Makeover
In the kitchen of this luxury apartment interior design, the fabulously molded ceiling has been gilded with spectacular effect. It glitters with life and adds a pleasingly eccentric touch to this functional room. As the ceiling is so elaborate other aspects of the room have been deliberately toned down. Apart from the gold on the ceiling the rest of the room looks remarkably rustic. With the rough brick walls simply painted a fresh white and the introduction of classical warm wooden cabinets the fusion of styles is extremely successful. Add in modern stainless steel fitments and a marble counter top and the mix is complete for a lively and welcoming kitchen environment.
This mix of styles and objects from different periods and walks of life is evident throughout the luxury apartment interior design. Each room enjoys very high ceilings and masses of period features. The designers have used a predominantly white interior design scheme to unite all the separate rooms and woven into this a wide range of contemporary materials and furnishings. Each room has a distinctive atmosphere. The living room is spacious and airy with timeless and elegant furnishings perfectly suiting the space. A huge plant brings a delightful freshness to the interior and spot lights introduce a novel theatrical reference.

In the bedroom a similar approach has resulted in a marvelously relaxing space, the wall behind the bed has been stripped of plaster and the bricks painted white as they are in the kitchen. This roughly textured wall in combination with the bare floor boards, old fashioned radiator and simple window shutters is reminiscent of an urban loft style apartment. The heavy duty spotlight and black and white artworks again add an artistic touch.
The mixture of surface textures and materials in this luxury apartment interior design is an important key to the success of the project. In the bathroom the heavy emphasis on marble and old fashioned fixtures and fittings is another fine example of how materials set the tone and mood of each room. On this occasion the bathroom as the designers say
‘ ..bears a strong reference to the Turkish hammam culture….
A truly fascinating home which truly links past, present and possibly the future.
