Villa Adamo is an eco-luxury villa located off the road to Cap de Babaria, Formentera, Balearic islands. The villa has a warm and rustic, simple and inviting feeling. The dominant color inside that serves as a canvas, is the pure white walls and ceilings, only tinged with the color of the rustic wood. Sometimes in natural color variations and sometimes in blue, memory of the sea that washes the island. The use of a few chosen pieces of furniture with a special rustic charm of restored furniture and old flavor, sometimes at odds with luxury items, breaks up the outline of simplicity and reinforces it. There are six bedrooms in this holiday home that is available from here. Enjoy this spectacular rustic home!

A modern industrial retreat in Eugene, Oregon placed amongst the trees at the top of a hilltop overlooking the city below and coastal mountain ranges in the distance. The sloping site and extensive conservation zones were quite challenging. The design and build of this exquisite hilltop house is by Jordan Iverson Signature Homes. The siding on the exterior facade of this contemporary home is a standing seam roofing metal. The interior of this spectacular home is urban modern design that exudes a warm ambiance.
The fabulous living room sofa is called the “Spencer Loft Bi-Sectional” from Gus* Modern. The custom lighting design hanging on the left has been custom designed by the designer, Jordan Iverson, who plans on selling a few of his lighting designs later this year on Etsy. His steel guy fabricated the bar and brackets and he sourced the electrical cord, and metal cage and finished it with a large Edison style bulb.
The High Park Chair is also from Gus* Modern.
Clad on the dining room wall is reclaimed barnwood from a barn that was being taken down in Silverton, Oregon built in the 1920′s. It was purchased through Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage. The wood has been fastened to the wall with standard casing nails. No adhesives were used. The key detail before it was fastened was to paint the entire wall black as there are various knots and imperfections in the reclaimed wood. The wood was not sanded, otherwise it would lose its rugged look.
This rustic modern industrial designed kitchen features metallic glazed porcelain tile backsplash, Caesarstone quartz counters in haze, reclaimed barnwood floating shelves, an island detail, 3-Form Eco-Resin cabinet panel inserts, Rustic Hickory custom built cabinets with a charcoal stain and engineered birch flooring.
The pendants above the kitchen island are Starburst pendants made by ET2 Lighting.
The designer was inspired to blend all the materials together and tie them back into the surrounding rooms in the home. He wanted to create an urban space, but also one that felt comfortable and solid. Materials that are easy maintenance and long lasting were also important.
The Kraus modern farmhouse style sink was selected to tie in with other industrial modern elements in the kitchen and throughout the home. The designer wanted the exposed stainless farmhouse style sink to be one of the main focal points of the space.
These porcelain floor tiles are called “Modern Limestone” in a steel grey color. A matte finish was used on the floor and a polished finish for the tub and backsplash.
The majority of the light fixtures throughout the home came from ET2 Lighting, including these fabulous fixtures above the bathroom vanity. The countertop material is quartz, made by Pental Quartz and the color is Sparkling Grey. According to the designer, the countertop looks amazing in person with the flecks of metal sparkling from the lighting.

In Montana’s Yellowstone Club, a getaway home designed by Faure Halvorsen Architects in conjunction with interior design firm Peace Design showcases the Old West vernacular with an industrial edge. The owner’s asked for a second home that was not only rustic but also unique. The site was what drove the entire design concept, from the steep lot to the spectacular views of nearby Pioneer Mountain ski area and distant Yellowstone National Park. It was a difficult task for the architects to design a home to fit the clients with their twin sons as well as a large extended family. The solution was to design four separate “modules” that were connected by way of enclosed bridges and hallways that work their way up the hill in an organic, nonlinear fashion.
Each module is nestled at a different elevation and slightly different angle. This approach allowed the architect to maximize the incredible views from the 4,500 square foot residence and conceal the neighboring houses from sight. The design also created fascinating sightlines within the interior spaces, with bridges and living spaces divulging glimpses of other parts of the home. The unconventional configuration also created some intriguing nooks and crannies, such as a staircase landing which doubles as a niche for a desk, to wall-recessed bunk beds, to a wine cellar that is tucked beneath the bridge connecting the living room to the master suite.
Just as unique is the rustic retreat’s palette of materials, finishes and furnishings. The material choices offer a fresh take on rustic design, making the new structure appear as if it were constructed over time. Finishes include standing-dead timbers and reclaimed barn boards, joined by Montana moss rock that forms walls, double-sided fireplaces and the enclosure around the kitchen stove. The bridges were designed from salvaged steel joists, tracks and screens that recall the region’s mining tradition. Peace Design added softness into the design scheme to contrast with the rugged materials as well as subtle decoration to create livability. A neural color palette was chosen, mostly earthy hues in a range of browns and greys, as a backdrop for the owner’s collections and art.
