The designer simply calls this project a “Kitchen, pantry, and living room in this 80’s tract home turned Spanish Colonial dream.” I call it joyous, family-centred and packed with personality. Pattern and colour overload with practicality but also with fun. I now have to make that pantry my own! Coastal Kitchen and Pantry by interior designer Meta Coleman.

Spanish minimalism

Posted on Tue, 2 May 2023 by midcenturyjo

Stripped back to its fundamentals, with honest materials and spare in its use of space this stone studio references not only the simplest finca or stone outbuilding but also the many Roman ruins that dot this area of Spain. Yes, these photos are very architectural (translated as an interior designer would have added a few more worldly comforts whereas an architect likes to photograph the essence of their design form) but the simplicity of living in this rural setting is beauty distilled.

A magical child’s bedroom full of wonder and whimsy by Meta Coleman. It’s a room celebrating the inhabitant’s love of nature and race cars. Maximalism with plenty of storage for containing the inevitable creative chaos. What a fabulous space for inspiring imagination and learning!

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Danielle Frankel Studio by Augusta Hoffman Studio.
