This converted rural farmhouse in Granada, Spain is designed for social living. This is the summer home of Es and Jack and their daughter Ry. The style of this family home can be best described as simple, whitewashed, local style with Moorish lights and doorways.
We try to bring a sense of interior style to our outdoor space,’ says Es. ‘We have loads of lanterns and rugs out on the terrace and have created a canvas canopy above.’ She adds, ‘This is a simple farmhouse, but as we are in the Sierra Nevada – in the shadow of the Alhambra palace – we wanted to add a Moorish flavour.’
The family’s goal was to create an inviting home where they could spend endless days relaxing with family and friends. An open home with cosy textiles, relaxed banquette seating and ‘help yourself’ kitchen storage makes friends feel welcome.

Most furniture in this Scandinavian home has been sourced from lea markets and thrift stores. An eye-catcher is the large iron cabinet (top left image) that once was used in a hospital.
The large four-poster bed in the bedroom (image below) is made of building pipes. Antique bed linen softens the industrial look.

Kids like color and there is a lot of it in Lea Bawnager’s home in Sweden. Lea lives here with her husband and their son Elliot. She loves to visit flea markets and often she comes home with beautiful finds. An old flower box, found on a flea market, serves as bookshelves (image above).
Toys can be stored in this Swedish wooden bench.
Most furniture in Elliot’s room was sourced on flea markets. The image below shows Elliot’s play corner in the living room.
