This lovely summer home is located in Las Salinas, a natural park on the island of Ibiza. Designed primarily as a family holiday home, emphasis has been put on the outdoor areas to make the most of the summer months. The house, inspired by the traditional Balearic architecture, is decorated in a natural rustic style with mainly natural materials and colors. The floor layout is simple and practical. By using the same materials and finishes throughout the house all spaces are integrated. A great place to relax!

Altereco_Cottesloe Drive_64

This modern home in Melbourne, Australia, is designed and built by Altereco. The design is simple with clean lines, an open plan layout and a sober color palette. But simple does not have a negative connotation here. With simple means beautiful and stylish!

masmallorca4

This house on Mallorca (Spain) is the perfect summer home. It is situated less than 50 meters away from the sea and there is no line between inside and outside. The pergolas on the terraces provide shade, while the thick walls keep the heat outside so it stays cool inside. Striking are the hot pink chairs which contrasts beautifully with the blue sky. The house is new but it was built with respect for tradition. The construction, although modern, comply with Mallorcan architectural guidelines and natural materials have been used that come from the area.

finca-mallorca-2

Are you enjoying summer? I can not get enough of seeing beautiful summer houses so I continue featuring stunning holiday homes here on The Style Files. Today’s post is about a renovated finca (= a Spanish farm house) on the Spanish island of Mallorca. The location is idyllic, the home is situated on a hill and is surrounded by olive and almond trees. I love the interior with natural materials which gives a rustic chic vibe. You can see more of this home in the August edition of Dutch magazine VT Wonen.

Welcome back! I just returned from a two week holiday in the South of France. We had a wonderful time relaxing on the beach, eating delicious food, doing some sight seeing and enjoying quality family time. I will tell you more in a later stage (in the mean time you can see some holiday images here on Instagram). Now it’s back to business which means showing beautiful houses for you to enjoy. I start with this cozy nordic style home overlooking a Norwegian fjord. Owners Hilde and Kristian Eriksen did not only built and designed their house but also designed most of the interior. Daylight has been used as much as possible to give a light and airy feel. For instance there are no curtains so light can freely flow in. I love the use of natural materials (such as wood, rattan and linen fabrics) which gives a soft and warm feel.

I am off to the South of France my dears. We will be staying close to Saint Tropez where, according to Garance Dore, I should be looking for these stunning Rodini sandals. I am taking a break from blogging for a week or so but you can follow my French adventures on Instagram. Happy summer to you all!
