Spanish House Filled with Flowers and Light
It is always interesting to look at beautiful houses in warm climates, where beautiful nature inspires for colorful solutions. The sun’s rays passing through the large windows fill each room with light and air. Luxurious terraces and sundecks combine home interior with garden.
Spanish Designer’s House Filled with Flowers and Light
House of the Spanish designer Ana Pardo de Santayana
Spanish houses are curious by subtle blend of classical traditions and country style. This stylistic union always looks elegant and is becoming a genuine pride of hosts.
The hostess of this house is the Spanish designer Ana Pardo de Santayana. She purchased the property in 2008. By the time the house was already 30 years old. The new owner was planning to confine to cosmetic repairs. But first she invited her colleague Isabel Flores, the owner of a construction company. Together they decided that it makes sense to update the whole house, and to solve the problem with the lack of natural light.
As a result they increased windows as far as possible. And then suddenly they decided to expand outdoors of the house (terrace) using the space of the garage. They demolished part of the walls, increased windows, and got a spacious porch with elegant chairs, plenty of light and colors.
Spacious terrace includes two zones: for recreation and for al fresco dining. This “dining” area is partially surrounded by walls with elegant French windows, replicating luxurious curved arches around the entire terrace.
House sparkles with riot of colors. There is a variety of colours on the porch in garlands of flowers, potted plants, herbs in pots and even in prints on pillows and buckets with posies.
