These four elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire are represented in the four guests’ cabins, while the owners’ suite with a sliver colour palate synthesizes them all. The 5th element theme of Quinta Essentia yacht is integrated subtly into the design through details, colors and patterns which are displayed against an absolute and pure white background.
