The hard-earned result of profound knowledge and 20 years treating Mallorca homes? ‘Warm glow’ interiors…
Everyone has one. That special something they had in their home growing up that was such a part of the family, it still gives them a warm glow. And when they look at it now, in their own home, it seems to somehow embody their story.
Yours might be a slightly irregular cabinet, or old wooden dresser. Maybe a child’s rocking horse, or a sofa upholstered in a distinctive pattern. It could even be a single cushion, or a simple vase. It doesn’t have to hold enormous monetary value; it just has to resonate.
Heirlooms are family possessions handed down from generation to generation, and they lend a rare quality to interiors that can just not be bought; except at Daniel Steen, that is. A genuine welcome from Katja Steen and Adelino de Miranda and a look around at the calibre of architectural tomes lining the shelves of their Son Caliu – Palma Nova showroom tells you they aren’t about the quick fix, or the shallow and superficial. They’re a learned, deeply educated interiors team who give homes ‘the heirloom treatment’.
The best houses aren’t just about style. They reflect the promises and commitments the inhabitants have made to build a life together. In that way, a Daniel Steen interior is imbued with the joy of permanence. That is not to say their spaces are ever staid or stuffy. Katja and Adelino have that knack of blending antique, modern and sophisticated pieces into a feel-good aesthete.
Scouring the global trade fairs, they source authentic and beautiful furniture and decor items, settling them perfectly into properties on Mallorca. The result, says Katja, is “Modern, cosy environments with the kind of atmosphere only achieved by combining pieces from different parts of the world.”
The key to Daniel Steen’s pedigree? Katja’s grandfather founded the Daniel Steen name in Hamburg in 1925. Now that is real heritage.
