Spanish Tranquility | Calming Interiors


Sometimes I come across a home with such arresting beauty that it always amazes me. Here is such a home. It feels so natural and yet, I’m sure that a lot of thought went into each element. I love the simplicity of the materials and the calm soothing palette of neutral colors highlighted by varying shades of blue. The home is one with its surroundings and calming interiors. It is perfect. Please enjoy this lovely home in Marbella, Spain.


I love the scrubbed finishes, pale tone on tone palette and the interior linen curtains. Hanging curtains at doorways, always adds an extra layer of comfort I think.
