Mi casa Ã©s tu casa!
Going to another country doesn’t only mean eating different food and seeing a culture that’s unlike your own but it also means seeing new decor and interior style.
I’ve noticed that in Spain where we are staying,Â no villa is the same – architecture-wise. Yet their designÂ styles are very similar. I always tend to see curvaceous railings, tiled pathways, stone walls, beautiful archways, decorative paintings and a great number of fruit trees. Lovely!
I do understand that many places are probably bought by English (or non-Spanish) people anyway and then they decorate the place, but there are lots of practical interior choices too that seem essential for Spain. For example there are the ceramic floors that are perfect for the hot weather as they absorb the heat, the railings and the air-con too. Then, of course, there’s the pool – which is clearly a must-have when the weather isÂ 30+ degrees 😉
Unlike in England where we seek the warmth of carpets, there is no sight of it in this massive villa and I’m not surprised. There is simply a striped rug in the lounge used as a focal point for decorative purposes. It easily brings together the furniture using it’s brown and beige combination and adds interest to the uniform tiled floors.
European Patterned Tiles
I am completelyÂ fascinated by the decorative tiles that are used on the stairs of this Spanish home. The blue, white and brown go great together and even go well with the wildlife around it. Personally, it looks very European but that’s why I’m drawn to it – not only does the sight go hand in hand with that holiday feeling but the stylish stairs show personality and vibrancy.
Enjoying The View
The best bit about the villa being so high up is the view. I love that I can get a real birds-eye view from the villa, which is especially magnificent at sunrise. Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂
