Castiglioni Residence, Formentera

Located on the Spanish island of Formentera is this stunning residence of Consuelo Castiglioni - fashion designer and founder of the label 'Marni'.

The residence is magnificent in a casual and somewhat rustic way. A truly personal and warm home with lots of character.

I am totally and utterly in love with these dining chairs. I have no idea who has designed them but they are simply divine!

I also love that they have fitted an industrial kitchen in this simple stone structure. A wonderful contrast of rough and smooth.

The living room is also heaven - that staircase leading up to a single door on the mezzanine level. Also note the cute trio of chandeliers next to the bed (with its carved head board).

How relaxing to sink a salt saturated body into that bath after  a day at one of the amazing beaches, or to lounge in the day bed.

I have a real weak spot for places like this.. *sigh*

Hello and thank you for your comments, and welcome to the new faces here!

Yes Consuelo is one talented woman and her designs are fantastic. I agree that those shoes are to die for - that colour green with leather detail. Delicious.

For the lucky girls who live in Milan or NYC - the Marni stores there are like monuments of style. A must-visit when travelling (with a well loaded credit card!).

Happy new week all!

x Charlotta
