Casa Mina

Posted on Fri, 30 Jul 2021 by KiM

I had to share another magical project by the talented team of Quintana Partners – Casa Mina in Mahón, Menorca. Their attention to detail and the methods they introduce in their designs that pay homage to the history and patina of the original structure and architectural details is really incredible and I have much respect for their philosophy.

Casa Jumanji

Posted on Mon, 26 Jul 2021 by KiM

I am head over heels in love with this home designed by Barcelona & Menorca based design firm Quintana Partners. If I ever had the opportunity to move to a city with such beautiful, centuries-old architecture I would want to experience it just like this. Jumanji’s main reference is the Bauhaus school, which dates back to Germany in 1919 and was very famous during the 20’s, for its modernity and rational ideology. What we wanted with this residence is that the client feels like in the family house inherited from his grandparents, keeping the original furniture of that time. It is a tribute to the owner of the house, who is German, and with this renovation we wanted to move his roots to Menorca with the Quintana’s merger.

Casa Sa Mar

Posted on Thu, 22 Jul 2021 by KiM

Welcome to Casa Sa Mar – a ”señorial” townhouse in the center of Sóller, Mallorca, beautifully and carefully restored from its 1896 origins. 450 sqm, ceiling heights of up to 5m and a large courtyard with a pool, with walking distance to the sea, mountains and everything that the beautiful village of Sóller has to offer. Created by Durietz Design & Development. Intricate tile floors, an adorned olive wood parquet, crystal ball staircase ornaments, a solid piece marble sink, and much more – all of the original details have been kept and carefully restored. What a stunner!

I spotted this home on Elle Decor Spain and knew it was a MUST share. Located in Vejer de la Frontera, a Spanish hilltop town and municipality in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, it is the summer residence of designer Gaspar Sobrino, and is a maximalist’s dream. The beautiful tile floors, unique chandeliers, artwork and rooftop terrace make this home really special.

Classic + Modern in New York

Posted on Tue, 6 Jul 2021 by KiM

When each room has its own presence and special touches, and really draws you in. This stunning home located in Long Island, NY was designed by Lisa Hershman of Abaca Interiors. It consisted of a complete renovation and extension for a young family moving to the suburbs. The goal was to combine classic architecture with a modern sensibility in furnishings. The result is a really current look that imbues a strong sense of elegance. (Architect: Nathan Laubach, Contractor: Draghi Contracting, Photography and Styling: Stylish Productions)
