Sandwiched between the popular holiday resort of Santa Ponsa and the Port Adriano luxury yacht marina, it’s no surprise Nova Santa Ponsa has evolved into one of Mallorca’s most sought-after residential neighbourhoods. And it was the owner of an apartment here who approached the creative team at lifestyle furniture store Villa Wesco to carry out a total revamp of their home.
NATURAL TONES AND MATERIALS
The Santa María-based interior designers began by setting themselves the task of creating a complete colour and lighting concept for redesigning all the rooms, while ensuring the client’s wishes flowed seamlessly into the plan. A selection of natural tones was chosen to increase the feeling of light and space, while the atmospheric tones and cool contrasts of accessories help to give that ‘wow’ factor. A combination of natural materials like wood, fabrics and ceramics also complement each other to add to the ‘feel-good’ atmosphere.
With furniture at the core of their business, Villa Wesco also drew from some of the finest international brands to furnish the apartment. This included seating by the likes of Italian and Dutch firms Manutti and Eichholtz, and smart designer lighting by Foscarini. The dedication to quality continues onto the outside terrace too, with an elegant Manutti sofa and charming vase-based tables by Gloster.
“The transformation made the flat much more modern, spacious and cosy,” explains Villa Wesco director Ana Lado, “as soon as you enter the property you get that feeling of coming home.” She was also pleased to achieve their aim of taking what was a ‘functional’ looking home and imbuing it with more character and identity.
“I was immediately convinced that Ana and her team had all the necessary skills and enthusiasm,” the client recalls, “and so gave them a free hand. And I was overwhelmed by the result!”.
