My husband and I had the opportunity to visit friends on the island of Majorca Spain a few months ago for a long weekend after one of my project site visits that was located 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 amount of variation on the island – from rustic farmland and stone villages, to chic Palma shops, to whitewashed beachfront hotspots. I loved how the rich earth tones found on the architecture found inland on Majorca, contrasted with the crisp white and deep blue of the coastal areas.
Here are some of my favorite snapshots of Majorca’s colors and textures that caught my eye:
Rustica facade in Petra
Rustic farmland outside Petra
Promenade in Palma

Courtyard in Petra. Love the contrasting colors of the reds, oranges and greens.
