AN ARTIST’S HOME ON THE COSTA BRAVA IN SPAIN

spa3

This whitewashed hillside country cottage on the Costa Brava in Spain belongs to Catalan artist and color forecaster Pepa Poch. Rather than focus on style or era, Pepa describes her dwelling in terms of its elements: wood, stone, ceramic, brass. It’s a perspective that comes naturally, considering that the artist designed almost every understated surface, fitting, and fixture. In her studio, whitewashed walls and rustic floors of reclaimed barn wood and concrete allow her paintings to take center stage beneath expansive skylights. The series of blue-green canvases served as inspiration for Poch’s spring/summer 2015 palettes. You can read more about this beautiful home here on Lonny.

Before Louis Galliussi got his hands on this Ibiza property, it used to be an old farmhouse which was in ruins. Can Kaki, as the finca is called, was extensively renovated and is now as beautiful home. The interior is tastefully decorated with natural materials but also unexpected objects such as the fishing net in the living room. Also the outdoor areas are stunning, Louis even created a beach with fine sand from neighboring island Formentera.
