It's Saturday again and I just cant keep away from Formentera!
One of the smallest and most southerly Balearic Islands (Spain), its most famous for its beautiful crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches. Cars are generally a no-no and most people get around this tiny island with bicycles or on foot.
|Multi- leveled terraces and wooden decking to link the house to the pool creates a laid back and soft feel.|
It is a traditional Spanish finca and retains most of the original elements such as wooden beams and fireplaces. Although this conversion was almost 4 years ago, the feel is still contemporary as a timeless classic has been created with the use of a neutral and natural backdrop working around the orginal features.
|Colour is introduced with the use of bold textile accessories and the theme can be updated without much expense.|
Old furniture has been upcyled to produce a truly rustic Spanish feel. Small injections of colour such as the green bottles and yellow armrests on the chairs create enough interest and variation to lead your eye around the room.
|The living room features a large fireplace with an upstairs loft and a door that connects to the outside.|
Interior spaces are open to the exterior with the use of large windows which invite beautiful sea views and cool breezes from the ocean.
The combination of all the rustic elements juxtaposed with bold use of colour and texture makes this Mediterranean Villa the perfect holiday getaway. Housing 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, Casa Rita promotes a feeling of of rest and revitalisation.
|Something BLUE, simple rustic painted furniture against a smooth light concrete floor keeps the space open and leads the eye outside.|
|The kitchen is minimalist and rustic at the same time, using upcylced timber panelling to add warmth and rustic charm to an otherwise modern space..|
Bedrooms are kept minimal and interesting textiles define the otherwise neutral background. Large windows and doors bring in lots of light and link the interior to the outside naturally.
|Most old Spanish houses have some patterned tiling, working with the design using textiles and furniture will add character and old charm naturally.|
|Relaxing reading corner bringing in bolts of modern flavour and a new colour theme to create an adult sitting area.|
