The Bratsera Hotel on the Greek island of Hydra lived its first life as a 19th-century sponge factory before it was reincarnated into a 26-room inn during the 1990s. The rooms, described as "typical Hydriot architecture," are full of interesting details like the platform bed and step stool shown above. For more, click below...
Wide plank wood is used for the floorboards, steps, loft and ceiling.
White fabric casually draped over the canopy bed softens the room.
Rows of low windows let in lots of light.
A mosquito net can cover the bed or be swept to the side.
