Updating this Mallorcan villa’s original interiors which were tired and dated required a visionary approach and complete back-to-brick refurbishment. Acting as the interiors and architectural creative lead for this extensive project, we represented the client throughout. At every stage of the process, our dedicated team kept the client aware of key milestones.
We undertook an extensive property search for a busy international client who was seeking the perfect holiday villa. Not only did we find our client’s dream residential location, this stunning villa in Mallorca, we saw huge potential in the property and knew we could transform it into a unique, characterful home away from home. Once the search was over, our team got to work designing an interior concept to suit the specifications and personality of its new owner.
Our concept was to create a bright, cool space, which utilised natural materials – such as metals and stone – to maintain the property’s rural character whilst delivering a pared back elegance.
To give the property personality, we added flair through flowing drapes, scatter cushions, a host of vibrant art and, in the bedrooms, stunning cushioned pillowed headboards.
This villa provides a tranquil haven where our client can relax and rejuvenate. Stripped-back, chalky-textured walls and stone floors make up the cool, modern foundations.
Teaming with award-winning John Cullen Lighting enabled us to deliver a bespoke, natural lighting design, which enhanced the organic aesthetic.
The property hadn’t sold for many years owing, in part, to the low ceilings. We swiftly detected this problem during early viewings and uncovered large voids above the ceiling heights that measured up to 3 metres in some places. Working with local architects NB Arquitectes we developed an extensive renovation plan to breathe new life into the villa and add height, space and depth throughout.
Back inside, the spacious, open-plan kitchen is perfect for hosting. Rattan furniture and wooden bench seating bring the natural elements into the home and provide a subtle blend of textures.
The radical renovation carried out also included the outdoor area, which is built for alfresco dining and entertaining. Shutters used over patio doors uphold a traditional, Meditteranean feel and looking to nature for inspiration, arepainted green to reflect the verdant palm trees which frame the property.
We fused the Spanish DNA of the villa with soft Scandinavian elements to give a crisp, clean edge to the rural, bohemian heart of the property.
The living area was designed with a keen eye on comfort as well as style, complete with a hand finished decorative blue wall, two seating areas and an overall sense of coastal calm.
