A Stable turned Summer Home

Are you surprised to see a worn out stable turned into a summer home?? I was :-)  This absolutely gorgeous home is situated in the sunny island of Formentera.  Formentera is part of the Balearic Islands in Spain, and lies south of Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea.

Almost the entire original building has been preserved. Artifacts bought by the owners from Bali and Sumatra adorn the stunning terrace. Teak wood, stone floors and other natural elements give this home a unique look. I love the  chandeliers in the white bedroom....sigh.....so romantic!! 

What more can I say......I love everything about this home :-)

Beautiful home! LOVE all the pops of color, especially against the white walls. And, the outdoor space is too die for! Thanks for sharing (and for your kind comment about my Spring mantel). *Becca* (your newest follower)
