bright & rustic spanish house


Today I'm in the mood for bright Spanish interior design, but I promise to share with you more photos from Lille a little later, maybe tomorrow, and one day I'll tell you about the Embryolisse skincare products I bought, as it seems some of you are interested in knowing more.

Back to Spain. Recently I found the top photo of the living room on the webite of Nuevo Estilo and was immediately drawn to the brightness of the space, designed by Heloísa Málaga. When I googled her I discovered, thanks to the Inspiring Interiors blog, that there were more photos available of this house by the Mediterranean.

I'll let the photos do most of the talking but I'd like to say a few things. The tables in the living room are maybe a little too rustic for my taste but the console one, behind the Louis XVI settee, is from a Belgian pub of the 19th century. The coffee table is an ancient Hindu bed. I have to add that I love the Dutch tiles in the kitchen and the Moorish-inspired bathroom. I find the exterior just as beautiful as the interior. The stone pavements speak to me, also the green wrought iron French furniture. The wicker chair has been painted to match it.

What do you guys think of this house? Would you like to spend your summers there?

Today I'm guest posting for Florina of fashionsensitive who took a little trip to Vienna. If purple is your colour then I think you should take a look.

  2. If I am to think of it as a summer house, I don't find it too rustic at all. It is more than perfect for a summer getaway. xo

  11. This home is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm not the biggest fan of rustic but its done so lovely here with the baroc details, light colors. The kitchen looks so cozy and I love the plates placed on the shelves. Definitely a very special home. Also the photography for Nuevo Estilo belongs to the most beautiful don't you think?

  12. Lovely light coming through those doors too! The settee is beautiful though impractical for my home. It does lend itself to a delicate rustic though with the delicate legs on the chairs and tables. Lovely - the outdoor areas are a beautiful place to enjoy the sunshine.
