Casa Biniaraix

The world is so hectic. Life is crashing from problem to solution and back again. The pure serenity of this house in Biniaraix, Mallorca is like a salve. Restrained, beautifully curated, with a simplicity of line, palette and finish. Understated luxury. Renovation and extention by Gabriel Santos.

Vessels Apartment

An open plan 250 sq m apartment in Barcelona. Overhead lighting defines the spaces with a central, cave like core for bathing. Each space is a vessel with its own identity from sleeping through to bathing, the library, the kitchen and the living area. The rough shell of concrete and brick from the original building envelops the new slick finishes, traditional bones cradling contemporary inserts. The Vessels Apartment by TC-Interiors.

Monday getaway

Run away! Run Away! It's Monday. Let's keep the weekend going with a virtual getaway to the Hospedería Convento de La Parra in the Extremadura region of Spain. We could call it a retreat. It is a 17th century convent after all.

"Sorry. You are not going to find a television set here, not even a radio tuner. Only spaces for reading, a table for playing board games, corridors for reflection, cloisters that will bring back to you the smell of orange blossom, lime, wood, rest, peace, water and sun."

Aaaahhh! A heavenly cure for Mondayitis.

Beach house in an olive grove

The holidays are over and now I need a holiday to recup. Actually, I just need a holiday to get out of this godforsaken cold weather. I would be more than happy to visit this wonderful home by Spanish architect Toni Gironès Saderra. It is located on a hillside in Cadaqués, Girona, Spain, and has 15 olive trees on the property. The home is simple yet stunning, and while not much going on with the decor in these photos, my brain is on overdrive thinking of the possibilities. Yes, I could spend winters here. Easily.

Codo a Codo

It's neck and neck, side by side, elbow to elbow what I like more about this holiday home on the island of Menorca. The sleek, white contemporary lines or the organic, natural touches. Maybe how the two place off each other. The epitome of modern summer style. By Codo a Codo Arquitectura.
