Whether you have recently bought a new home on the island, or fancy undergoing a refurbishment, decorating your home on Mallorca is an exciting time.
Particularly if you have more than one property in the world, creating a Mediterranean retreat that feels like home when you open the door can be a challenge. We all want that space of comfort and relaxation. Therefore, we hope to inspire you with a selection of interior projects that have been completed by the best designers, furniture stores and architects on the island. From page 110, take a peek inside the most exclusive, newly decorated homes.
You will find clusters of furniture stores and design studios in places such as Polígono Son Bugadelles close to Santa Ponça, the towns of Santa Maria del Camí, Port d’Andratx and Manacor, and of course the capital. There are a number of recently opened luxury stores in Palma you won’t want to miss. We’ve prepared a guide for you to spend a day popping from one inspiring store to the next as you discover wow pieces for your home.
The island is a magnet for international creative talent. We catch up with Magnus Ehrland, originally from Sweden, to show us around the newly designed El Llorenç Parc de la Mar. It is a wonderful hotel that brings together a multitude of different styles, both modern and classic, with Arabic and Mediterranean influences. When it comes to choosing traditional pieces for your home, what could be better than adding some local handmade baskets or furniture from weaver Tomeu Perelló. He is working hard to re-establish a lot of the forgotten weaving techniques and patterns on Mallorca. See more on page 70.
On a final note, when you need to make space in your home for that amazing new piece it is likely you’ll need to get rid of some old things. We suggest a few great places that will happily accept your old bits and pieces to repair, resell or recycle. Donating your old things is a great way to ensure a sustainable future on the island.
Enjoy an amazing home on Mallorca!
