Located on the Pitiusa island of Ibiza, this apartment was acquired by its current owners as a second home, to enjoy the summer months there and rent it the rest of the year. Therefore, the owners decided to carry out some conditioning works to adapt it to their tastes and needs.
Both the partial reform and the choice of furniture was carried out by Ana, from the Hermanas Bolena architecture and interior design studio (www.hermanasbolena.com) in whose project they put "soul, heart and life".
The first step was to paint it in matte white to enhance its luminosity. As the distribution of the house was optimal, it was not modified: the entrance with a tiny lobby gives way to an elongated room that was divided into two rooms: dining room and living room. The latter leads to a terrace with views lateral to the sea. Two doors leave the hall, one communicates with the small kitchen, with clothesline included, and the other door leads to the two bedrooms and the bathrooms.
It was precisely in these rooms where more changes were made. In the rooms, it he papered the headwaters area of the beds, and the bathrooms were tiled with porcelain tile and were completed with work furniture. This was followed by the painting of the doors in white, a new electrical installation, exterior carpentry with electric system in the blinds, centralized air conditioning and polishing the marble floor. After completing all these improvements, he went to the most fun stage: furnish and decorate the house. In this sense, Ana wanted to flee from the classic Ibizan interior design starring Buddhas and other Zen stereotypes; Therefore, he was inspired by the entire typical color gamut of the Mediterranean: green, blue, sand or yellow. As for the decoration, pieces vintage that recreate the 50s coexist in harmony with other more current, such as lamps, without forgetting the echo touch that plants and flowers put. All chosen to feel comfortable, really at home.
Marble is a noble material that conveys a feeling of spaciousness since its installation, without joints, simulates a continuous surface. Being a porous material, it quickly absorbs liquids and is sensitive to any acid, so it is important to clean with soap and water and dry immediately.
