The brief for the interior design of the motor yacht RMK4500 "KARIA" given to Design Unlimited was to create a welcoming comfortable environment that would be suitable for extended Mediterranean holidays, as well as long-distance cruising. The theme for the interior is based on contemporary Asian design using influences from Thailand and Japan. This has resulted in a rich palette of materials being assembled by the team which incorporate specialised finishes such as gold leaf stencilling, custom lacquering, parchment and shagreen. Combined with the finest selection of silks and other sumptuous fabrics, they give an eastern theme to complement and contrast with the contemporary uncluttered space of the interior. Dominant materials like the dark Wenge timber are offset by light fabric panels, white grooved ceilings, and decorative shoji screens which, when illuminated by the carefully considered ambient lighting, create a warm and relaxed atmosphere and serene living space that has luxurious simplicity. The combination of these elements give the yacht a truly relaxing ambience both suitable for family relaxation yet easily transformable for impressive entertaining.
