I posted this last May, but find it an evergreen inspiration for summer living. Have a great holiday weekend!
In my mind, I am in full-on summer mode and find myself obsessing over vacation homes and interiors. This 19th-century farmhouse home in Menorca, Spain featured in the latest WSJ Magazine, which had been renovated and is owned by architects Christophe Comoy and partner Luis Laplace of Laplace, is my idea of heaven. I am not going to do it justice by writing extensively about it here, because the story behind this home is not easily summed up, but definitely worth the read. Christophe and Luis have worked with many artists over the years such as Cindy Sherman and are responsible for the interiors of some of the gallery Hauser & Wirth’s spaces. But there is nothing intimidating or minimalist “artsy” about their personal latest renovation. I love the organic mix of rattan (really, over-obsessed with it now), old wood, ceramics and textiles. It looks so inviting. These images are going in my tear sheet file so I can return to them again and again.

Reminds me of (And I’d be shocked to hear that they didn’t look closely at) Jacques Grange in Provence. You did a nice job summing up the design threads that run through the house. Full on barefoot luxury.

Wonderful house! I have a long time rattan obsession. I never tire of it and it seems to work with everything.
So beautiful – rustic and elegant.
