With the increasing number of people choosing to make their home on Mallorca, it’s no surprise that the construction and interior design industries are booming on the island, attracting new talent and cultivating a proliferation of exciting projects.
In this our Home & Décor edition we present you with a collection of these projects, handpicked for their outstanding qualities, be it their simple elegance, clever original design, or just plain gorgeousness!
The daily mission of the team at abcMallorca is to be a compelling source of information helping you to enjoy the best of what the island has to offer. Check out our tips on moving to Mallorca on page 40 which considers the needs of those planning to retire here, if you have a young family, are single, or if you are planning to open a business. Aspiring business owners should also read our interview with Justine Knox on page 92, who shares with us her story how she built up the successful interiors company Knox Design.
To add character to your home, while enjoying the search for a piece with a story to tell, check out our guide to the best places to pick up vintage and antique furniture on page 152. We also celebrate all the wonderful new design happening on the island, showcasing homegrown creativity in our Made in Mallorca feature on page 148.
Mallorca has always attracted artists, and we meet a rising star of the painting world Grason Ratowsky (on page 64) who invites us into his home and studio to talk to us about the inspiration behind his move to the island. We also speak to world-renowned artist Hunt Slonem (on page 70) who is exhibiting on the island this autumn, about his flamboyant art and extravagant properties.
And we hope you are inspired by the stylish living spaces, chic interior design projects, and decorative ideas between these pages to create your perfect residence on the island.
Enjoy an amazing home on Mallorca!
Helen and the abcMallorca team
