INTERIOR DESIGN ON THE MOVE: SUPER LUXURY YACHTS July 02 2012, 3 Comments
If you have a million dollar budget for a month long summer rental or a few minutes for daydreaming, check out these beauties on the water. There are a lot of luxury yachts that are outdated and overdecorated (not that I would turn down an invitation on one of them), however these stunners are right up my alley. First up is the "A" yacht designed by Philippe Starck. This spectacular 394 foot home on the water was completed in 2008 for an estimated 300 million.
The master bedroom suite has a rotating platform and rotating bed to take advantage of the magnificent sunrise and sunset views with the push of a button. The windows surrounding the suite are made of bomb proof glass. Mirrored glass finishes as seen on the jacuzzi tub and vanity with crystal vessel sink are examples of how reflective surfaces were used to bring the light of the sky and the ocean inside.

It has a super luxurious layout and boasts a large collection of contemporary art. A combination of Italian design and African fabrics and materials were inspirations for this sophisticated vessel.

OK that was fun, now back to reality. If I had my pick I would definitely spend my time on the "A" yacht designed by Philippe Starck. With all of it's luxurious finishes of marble, chrome, leather and wood it would be sure to be a glamorous experience.
