On an obscure island in Greece, an interior designer creates a calm, cool oasis with whitewashed interiors and minimal furnishings.
Located on the island of Tinos in the Cyclades (more famous nearby islands include Mykonos), the villa, which consists of two houses connected by a second-story veranda, was overhauled by Zege Architects for interior designer Marilyn Katsaris. For those in search of a vacation, the villa is for rent; go to Homes Away.
