Renovated villa in Port d’Andratx by Trends Studio

Natural light and warm wood combine for inviting, low-key interiors

Located in the upmarket Port d’Andratx, this newly-renovated family villa is the very picture of elegant simplicity. A balance of light and warmth characterise the interiors throughout – finished by Palma-based interior design firm Trends Studio – created by a combination of natural woods, swathes of white, and sunlight flooding through large windows.

A modest though inviting lounge is decorated in a muted palate of creams and beige, with a large jute rug tying together low-profile coffee tables, comfy sofa, and a pair of black leather Barcelona chairs. The open-plan kitchen and dining room continues the theme of understated efficiency, where wood and white panelling form a functional yet homely environment. The indoor space accommodates up to a dozen diners around a simple white dining table lined with Eames-inspired seating, while outside the same number can enjoy alfresco meals under a covered terrace with garden views.

The villa, which is available to rent, also offers six double bedrooms, each dressed in linen with floating beds built from knotty wood panelling; some rooms open to balconies with views over the surrounds.

Ultimately, the project’s main inspiration is Scando-chic minimalism, which provides the backdrop for natural materials and a neutral colour scheme for a stylish-yet-cosy vibe and unfussy living space that can be enjoyed across all seasons.
