If you thought the terms island and sophisticated couldn’t be in the same sentence together, then you must check out today’s home tour – a stunning retreat on the Spanish island of Ibiza. This beautiful second home mixes touches of 70’s glam with warm natural elements ranging from rattan to leather, for a beautiful effect. While this is supposed to be a summer house, if I got to stay here I highly doubt I’d ever go home again. Scroll and own the envy.
The house, designed by Caroline LeGrand features a local marble, Blanco Ibiza, throughout giving the space a light and airy, but elevated feel. Metallic accents like that gorgeous xxx desk play to the glam side while organic elements like the wood paneling, shaggy Moroccan rugs and wool crocheted curtains add texture and dimension. Classic vintage designs that include a rare Milo Baughman-sideboard in the living room, BB Italia chairs and Tom Dixon mirror ball lamps dot nearly every room. There’s also a lot of play with scale, from oversized bedside lamps to low modern seating.
The house’s cabana was modeled after Mollusk Surf Shop for the designer’s 10 and 12-year-old sons. I love the retro vibes.
I’m obsessed with the mix of natural elements in this marble-clad bathroom. A rattan & wood framed mirror, wooden wastebasket, and accessories in rich tobacco tones tie to the color scheme used throughout the whole house.
When you step into the house’s outdoor lounge areas you know you’re on vacation. From a stunning dining table to a built-in breakfast nook, to the pool, you never really need to be inside if you didn’t want to be.
This house is the epitome of laid-back elegance. While you can obviously relax here, this space still feels like a fully formed home, rather than an afterthought.
