What is not to like about this stunning home designed by Paris based Festen Agency?! The location could not be more perfect (right at the beach in Cape Ferret) in France, the sea view is beautiful and the house itself is equally stunning. I just love the use of natural materials which gives a warm & cozy feeling. Simply perfect!
This Californian house began as a pretty badly done faux Mediterranean 1990s spec house. Homepolish designer Rosa Beltran was asked to renovate the home and give it a more authentic yet modern look. The first step was to amend some of the structural elements. The vinyl windows were replaced and the entrance was adjusted to better fit with the neoclassical architecture found throughout the neighborhood. The original double doors and oversized window have been replaced with a more intimate entry: a single hardwood door set beneath a gently arched ceiling. Geometric tile on the steps sets the tone for the Spanish-inspired aesthetic found inside. You can read more about the house and the design choices here at Domino.
For her home on Ibiza (Spain) Dutch interior interior designer Carmen Straatsma has combined glamour and elegance with natural materials such as wood and stone. The touches of soft pink give the interior a feminine look.
