Caprice

A 1980's holiday rental with a view to die for, this apartment had seen better days when the owners engaged Watermelon Red to transform it into their private family holiday home. With a 5 week old Mini Melon in tow, WR was charged with project managing the demolition and rebuilding of the interior of the space and selecting all fixtures, fittings and colours. The result is a vibrant, fresh and revitalising space that the family can whisk themselves away to reinvigorate themselves after a week of city life.
