Snapshots from Majorca Spain

My husband and I had the opportunity to visit friends on the island of Majorca a few months ago for a long weekend after one of my project site visits in Provence, France. Lucky for me, we were toured around by our hosts and introduced to the many moods of the island. I was most surprised by the variation – from rustic farmland and stone villages, to chic Palma shops, to whitewashed beachfront hotspots. I loved the rich earth tones found inland, contrasted with the crisp white and deep blue of the coastal areas.

Here are some snapshots of Majorca’s colors and textures that caught my eye:

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
