Sublime Spain

We have only just entered into spring in South Africa, so I am feeling a bit envious of those experiencing summer at the moment... And to make me even more envious, I am drooling over these amazing images of beautiful summer homes on the island of Formentera in Spain (located in the Balaeric Islands). This small island is quieter and less touristy than it’s neighbour, Ibiza. Sounds like somewhere I need to visit! These inspiring images are from Textura’s catalogue. This Spanish label has an extensive collection of home textiles. The photos for the catalogue were shot by Spanish photographer, Jordi Canosa. The styling was done by his wife Daniela Cavestany in their own home. I'm loving the neutral palette and the use of natural materials and colours. And don’t you love the views out of the over-sized windows? Heaven! I also adore the cement floors and staircase in this home and all the wooden beams! I’m a huge fan of rustic, country-style kitchens too, so this is perfect. The last property (see last 7 images above) was featured in the Spanish magazine, Interiores. It is also located on the island of Formentera. Loving this sublime Spanish style. Don’t you feel like enjoying a chilled pool party in this lovely outdoor area? There's a lovely laid-back feeling to this space. Aren’t all these spaces incredible? The simplicity and “back to basics” approach makes for a perfect, relaxed holiday destination.
