Solange van Dorssen

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.

Casa Al Mar

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?

Reader's home - Javier's holiday home in Spain

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.

Rustic idyll

More and more I feel myself drawn to the rustic ... the sophisticated rustic. The beauty of natural materials juxtaposed with contemporary luxury. Texture and minimalism. Solid, firm, permanent. One foot in the past, one in the future. I've featured Spanish firm Minim before and we have had a small glimpse of this Priorat house but when I found architectural photographer Eugeni Pons' portfolio I gasped. There is a richness, a warmth, a touch of humanity in these photos. Simple but luxe, rustic yet modern, it is a complex space. It may seem simple but it's a carefully considered play of opposites. Voids and solids, rough and smooth, past and present and Eugeni's shots capture it perfectly.

Luisa Olazábal

Occasionally I like to blog a designer/stylist/photographer whose style leaves me a bit out of my comfort zone. Luisa Olazábal is an interior designer from Madrid, and her portfolio filled with beautiful spaces does just that. They are classic with a contemporary flair, sophisticated and refined with soothing, muted colour palettes.
