a renovated spanish farmhouse
This home is the last one in the series of Formentera summer houses that I have been featuring for the past months. When the owners bought this farmhouse it was nothing but ruins but after a long renovation it is now a beautiful home.
The old stables and barns are now bedrooms which open onto a large central courtyard, which function as an outdoor area for relaxing and entertaining.
The decoration reflects the owners’ passion for traveling and differed cultures. Various items which they discovered during their travels around the world can be found inside as well as outside the house.
The stained concrete, exposed beams, stripped wood, boulders and whitewashed walls and the use of natural material all enhance the feeling of freshness and respond to the intention of the owners to maintain the spirit of the rural architecture of the island.
The chandelier in the bedroom (images above and below) was bought during a trip to the Provence. The whitewashed shelves offers room for souvenirs from other trips.
The bathroom (image below) is decorated in line with the rest of the house. The sinks and counters are made of concrete, so are the walls and floors.
