Palmanova Soul by Justine Knox

Natural Tones and Bold Print Transform Apartment

Interior Design by Justine Knox

With over two decades of experience renovating homes on Mallorca, Justine Knox has become one of the go-to interior designers on the island. The most recent addition to her impressive project portfolio is this top-to-toe renovation of a luxury three-bedroom apartment overlooking the Palmanova coast.

Adding Soul

The Australian owners asked Justine to combine a sense of lavishness with a touch of masculinity in this overwhelmingly white residence. With wood panelling and marble flooring throughout the living areas, the property had an innate elegance but urgently called for colour and styling. “My clients are very well travelled,” Justine explains, “and were open for a little bit of fun. I was excited at the prospect of mixing classic and modern elements throughout this house and giving it plenty of soul.”

An unusually large entrance hall was transformed into a stylish Art Deco-infused bar area. Its bespoke circular marble-top bar was produced on the island using local craftsmen. Stepping through to the open-plan living area, botanical print black and cream wallpaper draws attention to the attractive high ceilings while adding cosiness to the entire space. “From the moment I saw this room,” Justine shares, “I knew it was crying out to be bold and not bland.”

Reflecting nature

Green was chosen as an accent colour throughout the home, starting with the large comfortable sofa in the lounge and continuing to the likes of exotic jungle print in the guest bedroom and light moss fabrics of the terrace seating. Also on the terrace is a long wooden table for dining al fresco and a high table with stools to offer perfect vantage points to enjoy the fabulous views. A mirrored wall means the wonderful south coast sea vistas can be admired from almost anywhere on the terrace – a clever addition typical of Justine’s flair for bringing a special touch to all her projects.
