One&Only Ocean Club Cresent Wing
Tihany Design has reimagined the One&Only Ocean Club’s Crescent Wing by offering a uniquely fresh and colorful interpretation of Bahamian lifestyle to this oceanfront resort. Drawing inspiration from British colonial style and elements native to the area, Tihany’s undertaking entails the complete renovation of the interiors for the five two-story buildings, which in its entirety comprises 40 Beachfront Rooms and 10 Beachfront Suites. Tihany’s customized interpretation of contemporary British colonial style complements the relaxing beachfront setting. The elegantly appointed suites are infused with a vibrant color palette including corals, cerulean blue and sunny yellow, calmingly inviting guests to unwind and indulge in the resort’s tranquility. Brazilian cherry wood floors ground the rooms, both literally and figuratively, while soft white painted walls draw in the sunlight, with frame detailing adding depth to the space.

Soft and breezy textiles, ideal for beachside living, adorn furnishings throughout. Colors of upholstery and area rugs were carefully selected to reflect the tropical lushness of the Bahamas. Customized silk bed runners from Jim Thompson fabric collection decorate the lavish king size beds. Custom-made furniture made of ebonized mahogany wood with woven cane accents and campaign-style desks are a blend of classic colonial influences and contemporary design. Walls are accented with images of swimmers in stunning colorations by French artist, Camille Perrottet, a series which pays homage to the fragility of water as a natural resource. Hardwood louvered doors open to a private patio or balcony, offering endless views of a pristine blue ocean. Outdoor furniture incorporates upholstered fret back chairs to further invoke the island flavor.
