The Home and Décor edition is one of my favourites of the year, as it gives me the opportunity to delve into a topic I like very much. This year’s issue is no exception!
We put the spotlight on a selection of interior designers – each with their own unique style – who are tasked with decorating some of the most important properties on the island. We showcase their projects and get an insight into what inspires them, as well as some useful decorating tips for you.
We have a rare interview with Victoria McManaman, wife of former Real Madrid player Steven, who invites us into their beautiful holiday home in Son Vida. We get a glimpse of family life for the couple, who married on Mallorca and for whom the island is their special getaway from their busy lives.
The Danish fashion designer Malene Birger has recently launched her interior design business BIRGER1962; we showcase a property she recently decorated on Mallorca.
Marieta Salas is best known as a breeder of thoroughbred Arabian horses; we visit Ses Planes, her beautiful finca now available to rent for special events.
Many of the iconic furniture pieces that never go out of fashion, were designed in the 1950s and ‘60s. We look at some of the modern classics that remain on trend and a source of inspiration when decorating your home.
Can you think of 50 reasons to live on this enchanting island? We had a lot of fun compiling our top 50 reasons, which you can check out on page 40. And if you are planning to move to Mallorca any time soon then our relocation guide on page 30 is a must-read.
For those of you with big budgets, Mallorca certainly has some star properties to tempt you – we feature some of the most expensive properties on sale now.
Enjoy life on Mallorca!
