We all know how much I love stalking real estate listings. Things have been a little quiet on the house sales market lately (I wonder why) but you can always count on the fabulous real estate agency Fantastic Frank come up with the goods. Currently swooning over this apartment situated in the historical part of Palma called Calatrava. Ah the stone, the whitewash, the stairs, the island of Mallorca!
Simple, clear, pure, silent, polished, minimal and relaxed. That’s how Los Angeles and New York based D’Apostrophe Design describe their work. Their preference for primary forms is instantly recognisable in this modern family home. Think child’s blocks piled up in the snow not 200 year old barn wood, concrete, douglas fir wide plank floors and exposed oak hand hewn beams.

Rising like a rocky outcrop on the sandy dunes this stylishly designed guesthouse at Yzerfontein, South Africa is an oasis of calm, a dark cave providing protection from the glare of the sunlight and howl of the wind while opening to the stunning sea views. Understated luxury perfect for a beach getaway. Olive Tree Villa by Gavin Maddock.
