Fives years ago, my family and I started a great journey of creating the first boardgame related hotel, located in the centre of the Aegean sea, the cyclades complex of islands, on Paros
. www.aleaparos.com . Year by year we wanted to change the decoration and form a special environment in each room, inspired by some of our favourite games!
These photos are just a clue of the room decoration. The materials used are all second hand woodwork, some originally from bed parts, while others are from old doors and windows of Paros. They are all handpainted(by me ) and inspired by the original art in our favorite games.
So this year work is nearly done, with every room looking like this

. Hope you like them.

Dimitris Varrias from AleaParos

This is a piece of an old bed, found at a local antique shop, that has been , washed ,disinsected and handpainted with gouache.After that, we applied a special mat , spray varnish to secure the paint. The last step was to apply a mat brush varnish.
The salesman on the antiquery informed me that the age of the bed is more than 150 years.

This is just the other side of the bed described above.
This one was the first piece that I made, inspired by the favourite game of my father, who, as an artist himself , is fascinated by the artwork of all the Dixit series.

While my mother originates from Paros, the place where we grew up and live right now, my father comes from the island of Chios. On our last visit there, we found the old shutters of a mansion , being thrown away as the place was being refurnished.
This is one of them. The procedure we followed was the same, but this one had to be polished from scratch as the surface was worn out by the sea salt. (the house was very close to the sea).

Alea apartments is located right in the heart of the Cyclades(which aparently is way different than the map of the game .So, in thinking which games we should recreate, we could not skip that!

This one, is just inspired by the GoT series, and not the art in the original game. I tried to gather as many factions as possible and paint their embleme and their motto.

This is just a piece of wood found in the local antique shop of paros, sold to me at the price of 20 euros. I really have no information about the original use. The trouble was cleaning and disensecting the wood so that it finally reaches a point that is is ideal to paint on.
As for the game, it is in honour to one of the first games that brought our family in to the boargaming hobby.

Although it's a neighbouring island arrrh arrrh , i can't resist on creating a woodwork based on the combination of santorini's scenery and Santorini's gorgeous artwork .
