Located on St Barbara Bastion in Valletta, the Iniala Harbour House is in a league of its own when it comes to luxury finishes. The overall design combines ultra-modern finishes which complement traditionally restored materials showing a great respect for local heritage.
In 2018, the Iniala Group will not only be launching its spectacular, long-awaited hotel and restaurant on the Grand Harbour, but also an office building next to Castille, together with the first of its residential projects, on St Dominic Street.
The neutral interiors of this small house on the water’s edge complement the bold colours of the traditional boats and the blues of the sea beyond, while also bringing out the best and the most of its size.

Greta Apap Bologna has worked on an array of stunning international projects, as well as numerous local ones. Inspired by the festive sparkle of Christmas, Greta chose to highlight ‘mixed metals’ – a trend that works beautifully all year round. “Matching items isn’t very in for this year or next, so mixing materials – including metals – adds interest and excitement. And, of course, it works beautifully for this time of year too.”
Where do you start from and how do you make sense of a long, unwelcoming, open-plan area, with an odd shape? How do you make it cosy and intimate, while leaving it wide open? How do you divide the space in an invisible way? Interior designer Greta Apap Bologna, from Greta Design, has the answers.
