This beautiful country home surrounded by oaks and junipers is a family home project in Spain designed by architect Alfonso Zavala. He designed a house with wide open spaces, large windows, porches and patios, and lush landscaping, which is the work of Alvaro de la Rosa. The owners wanted the home to connect directly and intensely with nature. The interior of the home features the exquisite work of interior designer Isabel Lopez-Quesada, who continues this philosophy of blending styles of rustic and modern. Decorating with antiques and timeless classic style furniture as well as ethnic elements. Isabel’s mixture creates a beautiful and warm eclectic setting, putting emphasis on one of the fundamental requirements of a second residence, full comfort.
Comfortable elegance has been established throughout with the use of textures such as rustic silks, velvets and linens. Materials also establish an enriched environment with aged and washed woods, bringing authenticity with their mere presence; as well as handmade hemp carpets that frame various areas on the travertine flooring. Decorative details were designed by blacksmith Alberto Yunta such as metal lattice walls and some occasional tables. Via
