This Turkish Paradise has a Fitting Name…

On a narrow cobblestone street, in a historic neighborhood of Istanbul, sits a 19th century townhouse complete with glorious interiors and enchanting outdoor spaces.

It is the serene bed and breakfast owned and decorated by fashion designer turned interior designer, Asli Tunca, and her painter-sculptor husband, Carl Vercauteren, which is featured in the Spring issue of MILIEU Magazine.

The interiors, a mix of antiquities and custom pieces, flow together effortlessly. A new texture or interesting object resides in every corner, exquisitely arranged. Here’s how you can achieve a similar look:

Fittingly, this residence has been dubbed “The Hazz,” which is the Ottoman Turkish word for “Enchantment”. For additional views of this unique space, pick up a copy of the Spring 2015 MILIEU Magazine, and explore the Hazz website here.
