I love rustic, cabin-y spaces, especially during this part of the year, when all I want to do is curl up in front of a roaring fire. But I also love color, something you typically don't see a lot of in the cabin world. So of course I fell in love with this home in Spain, which is the perfect mixture of rustic warmth and cheerful color.
The house is an old Galician farmhouse, restored by Spanish designer Javier Requejo. He's created a space that's rustic, modern, and colorful all at once by leaving most of the building materials in their natural state and working in a colorful amalgamation of vintage and contemporary furniture.
Even though the furniture represents a huge variety of styles and colors, the fact that there isn't very much furniture (considering the size of the space) keeps everything from becoming overwhelming. Letting each piece have its own space means they all get a chance to shine. This home manages to be airy and light and yet warm and colorful — the best of all possible worlds.
