Villa Can Mar

Ibiza is on my top 5 list of places to visit. I would lose my sh*t if I was able to visit and stay in a villa like this. Villa Can Mar is the absolute epitome of Ibiza, zen-inspired style. Achingly cool, this contemporary and minimalist four bedroom home - with its razor sharp, clean, white lines and bold splashes of colour - comes complete with stellar ocean views and famous Ibiza sunsets. Having been created by merging two separate duplexes by JUMA architects in 2012, Villa Can Mar offers ingenious flexibility: certain spaces can be closed off or reconfigured to suit guests’ needs. Deeply glamorous, close to the hub of Ibiza’s action and a stone’s throw from some of the island’s finest beaches, this luxury Ibiza villa can be rented via Paradizo Private Collection.

Javier's holiday home update

Back in July of 2011 blogged the Spanish holiday home of interior designer and artist Javier Requejo. Javier emailed the other day to let us know his home was recently featured in Elle Decor España. The stellar photos and styling knock this already fabulous home out of the ballpark. I just had to share this version with you all since the first round was such a hit, and it's pretty neat to be able to see what it takes to make a home magazine-worthy. (P.S. Javier now has a blog).

Il Duomo

The renovation of a coffee bar in Lleida, Catalonia explores texture and light. Rope and slates made from fruit boxes from the local area provide visual interest while light and more importantly shadow draws patrons to cozy corners. The atmosphere is warm and rustic like the local country shop it is , avoiding the high tech and harsh while referencing the agricultural buildings of the area. The space is simple and real, the buzz is not only from coffee but from patrons at ease. Design is by Barcelona based AAIMM.

Communicating Vessels

We recently heard from Barcelona architect Victor Gonzalez, of TC-Interiors, who wanted to share one of his projects with our readers.
Communicating Vessels is a 250 sq.m complete apartment renovation, located in the Modernist neighborhood of Barcelona. The design layout is a response to the client’s wish for a united, open space that could benefit the natural light form early in the morning to late afternoon. For this reason, all mid-walls were demolished and the windows at the communal side façade were enlarged. The only enclosed department built from the scratch is the Core, which includes the guest room and the service areas, leaving the rest of the space diaphanous. Every use is 'marked' by a Lighting Carpet, a customized and highly resolved lighting system. As the floor carpets do, the Lighting Carpets, 'warm up' a specific territory of this home while the same time, indicate the use, by their distinct positioning and size. This loft space is HOT. I love the concept of using lighting to delineate a space - much more creative than throwing down some area rugs.
