This old holiday home in Puerto Pollença (Mallorca) revives converted into a white retreat dotted with natural textures such as wicker or linen. The premise was clear, they wanted a refuge of peace.
The designer Samantha Knight and the architects Paul Robinson and NB Architects knew how to capture the essence of Puerto Pollença, in Mallorca, turning an old holiday home into a refuge in which white color and natural textures such as wood, wicker or flax fill space with peace. Puerto Pollença is characterized by its low houses, which let you see the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. Despite being an area frequented by British tourism, it is a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of summer. To maintain that essence, they worked with local artisans who designed the furniture in a personalized way for the farm.
In its origin, the house had two bedrooms. Paul Robinson completely reconfigured the interior and opted for an open living room with a bohemian-inspired kitchen and four two-bedroom suites. One of them, has doors that open directly to the garden and from where you can see the pool, which is lit up dimly at night.
Also large aluminum folding doors communicate the living room with the pergola that communicates directly with the garden and that becomes the perfect place for large summer after-hours. The large central wooden table is the work of Conalma Design and the wicker chairs are handmade by an independent retailer in Palma. The aged olive wood coat rack is the perfect icing on this summer canvas made up of beach towels, wicker baskets and sun hats.
The garden is decorated with fragrant lemon trees, banana leaf trees and colorful bougainvillea. There is a pool inspired by Indonesia, carefully designed with jade green tiles, as if it were a natural water source. The natural light of the island does the rest.
