The wonderful, spare structure of the original house in rural Spain has been retained. A concrete floor is poured, a new staircase inserted, a simple tread and handrail detail added; old walls are kept raw, carefully considered niches are added. The house, old and new, is painted white. A sculpture placed here, a pop of colour there.

I want this house.
i wish i could help… although i want it too 🙂
Wow what a gorgeous house. Love the contrast between all the white surfaces next to some rougher materials.
it’s wonderful, isn’t it. and i think everything white with that contrast of textures is masterful. thank you for stopping by – i really enjoy your blog 🙂 J
What a beautiful space. I agree with that white is in it’s element when it contrasts with texture. The pops of colour also enliven the space. xD
thank you Doris!
I love this home. I love that a mostly white, clean, crisp space can create such a warn inviting interior. Gorgeous Design!
i know, white doesn’t have to be clinical and stark; it can also be warm and inviting (a mediterranean climate helps!!). lovely to hear from you.
