Project Name: Las Olas

Location: Cala Fornells – Mallorca

Date Completed: September 2016

Interior Designer: Justine Knox

Full interior design and renovation project turning an apartment in Cala Fornells, Mallorca into a bright and cheerful holiday home. The aim was to create a surprising blend of grown-up fun and sophistication for family use. Seeking to maximise space, the open plan area was extended to encompass part of the back garden, now housing the high-tech kitchen with double oven and built-in appliances, with its high gloss lacquer and wood units, Italian granite worktops, under-unit lighting and a functional island and breakfast bar.

In terms of the colour scheme, the starting point for this project was the bold yellow Italian leather sofa which has been blended with teal throughout the home to conjure up an edgy version of the sun and sea tonalities: modern Med with a twist. Wood-look porcelain tiled flooring stretches across the living area with its bright white and vibrant yellow walls. The teal-yellow palette is alternately picked up on kitchen stools, ornaments, rugs, cushions and artwork. The zesty Christian Lacroix window treatments add an explosion of colour to the lounge area and the feature ceiling lamp in the dining room crowns the contemporary glass and steel table for six.

The rear outdoor terrace leading on from the kitchen has been furnished with a bespoke solid wood table and aluminium seating. As for the front terrace with its patch of lawn, this has been fitted out with all-weather cane furniture accessorised with Missoni summer collection cushions in a colourful marine themed print. This holiday home was a modern twist on the traditional Mediterranean yellow and blue colour scheme but worked in to a modern concept. This small apartment was extended into a lovely open plan living space without compromising on the exterior living areas.
