Catherine Milner Interior Designer
A large part of the creative process is driven by influence. A lot of my own vision has evolved from projects on The Palm, and The One & Only is a new favourite escape for me.
The One & Only offers an oasis of luxury and tranquillity, an exclusive and elusive paradise
I’m heavily influenced by classical design in architectural features but I love to completely mix genres and I’m very contemporary with classical touches. The One & Only offers an oasis of luxury and tranquillity, an exclusive and elusive paradise surrounded with a very private air. The grand private villas and the ultra-civilised spaces, take their cues from the magical Moorish architecture of the past. It’s a highly exotic and stunning retreat and a must visit luxury destination.
My design aesthetic is all about creating highly defined, perfectly proportioned, intimate, elegant and luxurious interiors. My style is neo-classical; I like to use strong classical influences in the architectural details but juxtapose them with highly contemporary pieces of our time - mixing genres in a highly effective way. With the architecture being Moorish looking back to the Alhambra palace, a great beauty of the past and then juxtaposing it with highly modern and luxurious interiors.
Most hotels would be looking for this level of quality, but the real success here is mixing it beautifully and effectively.
