A PERFECT SUMMER HOME (FOR RENT) ON FORMENTERA

I hope you are enjoying this long Easter weekend! The temperature here in The Netherlands is cold for the time of year which make me long for warmer destinations. One of my favorite holiday destinations are the Balearic islands of Spain. We have been to all of the islands: Ibiza, Formentera and Mallorca. The beautiful summer home featured in the post is located on the small island of Formentera. Casa Manuel is a beautiful oasis situated in the Formentera country side. This cozy home is a typical island house. It can be rented for groups and has a capacity for 14 people. The ideal location to enjoy the holidays with family or friends! I love the outdoor areas which are perfect to enjoy an al fresco meal.

AN ARTIST’S HOME ON THE COSTA BRAVA IN SPAIN

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.

Last week we enjoyed a few days of beautiful spring weather. Although it was short (now we are having lots of rain and strong winds) it inspired me to search for dreamy summer homes and create this post. This home, designed by Monaco-based architectural firm Humbert & Poyet, in the South France is small but who needs space with an outdoor area with gorgeous views over the Mediterranean sea…

It is winter here in The Netherlands here and I love it. Temperatures are below zero and I hope it will stay cold so we will be able to skate on the frozen lakes. But that does not mean that I can’t enjoy looking at some beautiful outdoor areas on a sunny island. These cozy roofed terrance belong to interior designer Caroline Legrand’s home on Ibiza.

It is winter in this part of the world (hopefully we will be getting some snow at the end of the week) but when looking at Tine K’s new Spring/Summer catalog I was immediately in a summer state of mind. The catalog was shot on the Spanish island of Ibiza which is the perfect setting for the bohemian chic style of the collection.
