Have you been harboring a burning, yearning desire to take an extended journey to exotic Croatia? Yeah, me neither. That is, until I saw the website for the newly renovated Lesic Dimitri Palace turned boutique hotel in Korcula, Croatia. You may be wondering how I stumbled upon this little coastal gem…well, actually, they just happened to have used yards and yards of our custom Modello Decorative Masking Patterns for the restoration of the 18th century Bishop’s Palace and 5 surrounding medeival cottages.
Each of the cottages has been turned into a 5-star guest house and each has a different design theme with interiors influenced by the different regions along Marco Polo’s “silk road” travels, including Venice, China, India, Arabia, and Ceylon.
Some of the artwork is difficult to see due to the nuanced tone-on-tone application, but it’s there if you look closely. If you wander through the website you will also see many inspiring examples of all sorts of architectural allover and stencil pattern applications, as well as breathtaking local scenery. Tempting, isn’t it……book your reservations here.
