Entries in Spain (113)
What a way to start the week! Let's all move into this party home extraordinaire. Designed by Madrid interior designer Marta de la Rica this house in the resort of Sotogrande in Andalusia is perfect for long hot Spanish days. Friends and family, fun and relaxation. The dining room is just right for a long lunch, curl up for a movie in the family room, party time on the entertainment deck and pool house. Actually you'll find me in those stunning bathrooms. I always love a bathroom.
Solange van Dorssen is an interior designer from Argentina currently in Barcelona working as a stylist for architectural and interior design magazines for Spain, Argentina and Red Cover (London). She wrote us about a home we had blogged recently and when I read that she was a stylist I of course had to go poking around her Flickr photostream to check out her work. Am I ever glad I did because the homes Solange has styled are beautiful and styled to perfection! I am always a fan of decor from abroad. So much texture and pattern and best of all creativity.
It's Friday. Must mean that my attention turns to rest and relaxation. Warm sun, soft breeze, high design. A perfect trinity? Modern architecture meets traditional materials at Casa Al Mar in Port Sóller Mallorca. Round up the virtual holiday friends. We are off to lounge by the pool and soak up that view. I just have to find the energy to get that bottle of white from the fridge. Be a sweetie and bring it out for me?
Back in May of last year I blogged the Spanish home of interior designer and artist Javier Requejo. To my delight he emailed the other day with photos of his holiday home in Ourense, 15 minutes outside Galacia, Spain (where his primary residence is). It has the same rustic charm as his other home but this one is filled with even more of Javier's creativity and colour. And he even has some pets strategically placed in a couple of the following photos which always does it for me.
