Rustic Elegance

This occupants of this 300 year old home in the Cantabria region in the north of Spain, are a couple with a real wanderlust, but after years of moving from place to place, finally decided to settle and put down roots. They couldn't have made a better choice of home. Rough stone and wooden beams combine so well with their refined and elegant furnishings to create a warm, comfortable, light filled and very inviting home.  

The spacious living room with it's beautiful wooden floors and expansive doors leading to the outside is a perfect space for this young family.

Pretty details are found throughout the home.

Antiques sit comfortably beside more casual furniture.

Rough beams and stone walls make the kitchen warm and homely.

The light-filled dining room has beautiful views into the garden.

Beautiful tableware

What a gorgeous room for a little girl.

The casually elegant main bedroom.....

...has its own fireplace.

"Live simply"   but beautifully!
Have a happy week. For my fellow South African woman.... wishing you a fabulous Women's Day on  Friday. You deserve it!

Till next time
