The goal was to get the perfect refuge to live a perfect vacation and disconnect everything. If you look at the photos, you will soon realize that they did it.
A diaphanous space
The main characteristic that defines this villa is the diaphanous and ample concept with which the space was conceived. Wanted the visual amplitude of the interior, with a free and carefree circulation. As there are no partitions that compartmentalise the space, natural light flows freely through the interior, flooding every corner.
The main room of the interior is structured (although without separations or partitions) in different areas: a living room, a living area, a kitchen with island and a porch open to the outside with outdoor dining.
At the time of choosing the materials, also in this sense the naturalness, the authentic, prevailed. It was decided building materials of the island: wood, vegetable fibers, polished cement to put a current touch, etc.
And the same thing happened with the furniture, designed by Samantha Knight. With very good judgment, she turned to the local artisans for the realization of furniture, They have a beauty and an authenticity out of the ordinary.
The porch, the center of life in the house
Inside the house connects naturally with the outside through a porch where the dining room is located. It is the true center of life in this beach house in Mallorca, the perfect place to meet. It is directly connected to the garden and the pool.
The large rustic table was made with reclaimed wood, and the wicker chairs are the work of a Mallorcan craftsman. In addition, stands on the wall a rack made of olive wood. The polished cement floors put the contemporary note in this environment.
In front of the porch, as a promise of good times, the garden opens. There are abundant lemon trees, bougainvillea and banana trees. The refreshing pool is also a promise of happiness.
The perfect place to rest
Simple and natural, the bedroom is the perfect space to rest and relax. White as the dominant color, the soft texture of the natural bedding, the fluffy white curtains ... Everything invites you to relax.
And, as a focus of visual interest, it has the views of the garden and the pool. Only this wonderful picture, and the cushions in dark blue and the patterned headboard, break the whiteness of the space.
