He didn’t have a specific idea in mind for the interior, but suggested inspiration from hotels that he has stayed in. After months of general discussion, we created a mood board for the interior that we shared with him. After approval, we got to work.”Photo: Kerem Sanliman Photo: Kerem SanlimanM55’s interior is decorated with furniture by Minotti and Royal Botania, while linens and decorative pillows are by Missoni Home. Decorations such as vases, frames, and other interior accessories were sourced in collaboration with Dahlgren Duck.
