Specifications for CALLIOPE
Interior Designer's Description
Newport Yacht Interiors was hired by the owner's of M/Y Calliope to artistically infuse life into Calliope's interior and exterior living spaces. The requests of the client were met by incorporating the various bold colors found in French Impressionist paintings, notably, Claude Monet's Waterlilies series, calming shades of beach glass, subtle hints of sealife and accents of the color coral. Newport Yacht Interiors delivered a design theme that stood apart from the more monochromatic interiors prevelent in today's market.
Newport Yacht Interiors’ interpretation led to the use of exclusive luxury fabrics, melding bold and refreshing colour relationships, while layering patterns and textures of fabrics and wall coverings which subtly embody the spirit of the impressionist brush stroke style. Newport Yacht Interiors designed the staterooms incorporating striking characteristics based on the client’s aesthetic preferences for lively, nature inspired elements. Newport Yacht Interiors balanced the boldness of colour use within the interior living spaces by saturating the staterooms while maintaining a more selective use through the main salon, fly bridge salon and all exterior spaces.
The wall surfaces, flooring, cabinetry and window treaments were also carefully selected to seamlessly correlate the multiple elements onboard Calliope. Incorporating backlit quartz panels in the dining area walls, as well as countertops of the sideboards, enhance our strategy of layering organic reflections. The ceiling lights above the dining table resemble sea urchins with a soft fabric cover, creating a starburst pattern to juxtapose the linear pattern of the overhead wooden structure. The wall papers in each of the heads have some elements of a flowing, simple pattern with hints of a reflective Mother of Pearl accent.
The furniture onboard Calliope was selected by NYI so that it referenced the airiness of an outdoor, relaxed environment, using open back charirs and glass accent tables in the interior space. The exterior furniture has a light airiness to it as well, maintaining the client's preference for a modern, elegant but fun living space throughout.
By using many natural materials and fabrics which honor the owner's aesthetic preferences, touches of the color coral, organic patterns and sea life details are included throughout the yacht in a very well proportioned balance. NYI kept these details accutely positioned and limited as to not be overwhelmingly obvious.
The opportunity to be boldly creative while interpreting the essence of 2D pieces of artwork, Monet's Waterlilies series, into 3D appointments onboard Calliope has translated into exceptional results. Our clients were thrilled with the finished project.

Owner's Comments of Newport Yacht Interiors' designs
" The original vision we had for Calliope, our Numarine XP 32, was for it to be modern, elegant, and fun. I would say that Cheryl DiGennaro of Newport Yacht Interiors, was spot on in achieving precisely that ambiance. The color palette I wanted to work with, which had already scared off one designer, was pretty extensive. I was looking for most of the colors found in Monet’s Water Lilies; celadon greens, teals, red and orange corals, deep blues, etc. I wanted vibrant color accents to be played off neutral-toned larger pieces. Newport Yacht Interiors immediately connected with this vision, going on to expand and clarify it in the most loveliest of ways.
For the exterior seating, we selected a soothing aqua tone for the main color scheme. Newport Yacht Interiors then infused energy throughout all of the decks via fun combinations of patterns in coordinating tones. Layers and layers of pillows in varying sizes and patterns add visual interest and flexibility as they can be moved around in a flash to accomodate a game of backgammon or sunset cocktail party.
For the accent pillows in the main salon, she deserves a medal. My husband was over in Turkey taking one last look at the yacht before it set sail to meet us in Italy and sent me a photo of our couch. We had it made into a large U-shape to fascilate conversation and comfort. It is also a solid white. I took one look at the photo and realized our couch was one gigantic blank slate. It looked barren. So I called Cheryl to see what could be done before our guests arrived in two weeks. She selected fabrics and constructed at least a dozen gorgeous pillows in varying patterns, colors, and textures. There are silks and linens in solids and organic-looking patterns. The variety she chose was extraordinary. But the speed and expertise with which she addressed my last-minute design dilemma, was truly outstanding. That said, her talent for combining color and understanding our vision is evidenced throughout the boat.
Newport Yacht Interiors really impressed me as well when Cheryl picked up on the fact that while both my husband and I sought modernity in the design, he and I are drawn to organic forms. We never explicitely said this to her, she intuitively incorporated these by observing the things we liked, as well as the structural details of the build in progress.
As for the accommodations, Newport Yacht Interiors custom designed and fabricated all of our luxury bedding, incorporating the French Impressionist theme with sublte hints of sea life. Hence, the duvet fabric for the master stateroom is a gorgeous teal silk with a pattern in relief that looks like the rippled surface of water moments after a stone has been thrown in it. The accent pillows depict a bold floral in an abstract water-color effect in the exact color palette I originally mentioned to Cheryl DiGennaro of Newport Yacht Interiors.
She also had no problem transposing our vision to the lower staterooms. I wanted them to feel beachy and comfortable, yet sophisticated. Again, Cheryl curated the exact tone I was looking for through a combination of silks, linens, organic references, and fun patterns in the custom made bedding designed and fabricated by Newport Yacht Interiors.
In short, we couldn’t be more happy with Newport Yacht Interiors' creative talents to define and refine the concept we had for our new yacht."
P. E. Owner of M/Y Calliope
The Master Stateroom is full beam width with a lounge area as well as a small desk for office space. The owners requested a streamlined look, with well proportioned detail in the wall tiles and recessed ceiling. They prefered a minamalist approach while adding splashes of vibrant color in the bedding ensemble, which was custom designed and fabricated by Newport Yacht Interiors. Incorporating the French Impressionist painting influence, NYI carefully selected fabrics that would bring this vision to life. Layering color, texture and patterns in the fabrics add the aesthetic interest to the Master Stateroom. The owners requested a very colorful, but streeamlined theme for the soft goods throughout. The bedspread pattern resembles water ripples, while the floral pattern mimics the waterlilies found in Monet's famous series.
The VIP Staterooms, both port and starboard are mirror image of each other, including the decor. Here, the warm tones of the walls create an inviting space to relax. The custom bedding, by Newport Yacht Interiors, conveys the wishes of the client to have a sophisticated, casual chic feel to them. Elaborating on the French Impressionist theme, NYI created a scene out of a painting using textiles to tell the story. The bedspread showcases a repeated pattern reminiscent of lily pads in organic shapes, while the accent pillows bring in patterns of foliage in a painterly design and color palette.
Both of the Guest Staterooms consist of 2 twin berths, and are mirror image of each other, including the decor. The 2 teenage sons will be staying in these staterooms, so the decor was targeted to a younger guest. The inlaid stainless grid in the headboard walls, consistant throughout the staterooms, adds a nice touch of detail without overwhelming the space with excessive contrasts. The bespoke bedding, custom designed and fabricated by Newport Yacht Interiors, carries forth the theme found throughout the vessel. In subtle details, you will see an homage to the sea; Bedspread textiles in a pattern and colors which represent small stones in a river, accessory textiles mimic surfbaords and seagulls in cool tones of blues. Accented with a contrast of bright coral, gave the client the feel she was looking for.
The Main Level Aft Deck flows from the Main Salon, adding additional dining and lounging opportunities. A large sunpad sits behind the dinette settee, adding to the variety of options. The settee comfortably sits 5 around 2 folding tables, while the additional teak chairs add seating for another 4. The textiles and colors coordinate with the salon and the other exterior spaces. 2 bar stools are included along the built in bar area. (apologies for lack of photo in this area.)
The Beach Club is a great feature on the 32 XP, allowing for playtime in the sea. The lounge area is very spacious and is equipped with a large settee, 4 chaise recliners, and a wet bar area. An umbrella is included for additional shade and is quite useful. Here, the family and guests have direct access to the sea for swimming and water sports, while allowing them to have quality family time with those who prefer to sit back and watch.
Creative details are featured in many of the elements onboard. The clients wanted a light interior, and the lighted glass stairway certainly delivers. Quartz panels are also found inset in the Skylounge bar surfaces, as well as the dining wall panels.
