WARNING: If you are in the mood for some relaxing summer vacation under the Mediterranean sun, then please proceed at your own risk for this post will probably leave you drolling over your screen (extra caution if you are in your office or cafe, as spontaneous ahs and ohs will leave your mouth unnoticed).

A brilliant work of More Design and in collaboration with its Nordic owners, this rustic townhouse above the village of Deià in Mallorca has all the ingredients that contemporary rustic dreams are made of.


✔️ Bare stone walls and concrete floors

✔️ Wooden ceiling beams

✔️ Built-in furniture and a generous quantity of cushy linen pillows to add coziness

✔️ Natural textures in the form of raw wooden finishes and rattan accessories

✔️ Touches of greens indoors with pretty plants strategically placed, including hanging ones

✔️ Arched doors and windows

✔️ The most gorgeous exterior with a breathtaking view and a pool to refresh during the hot Mediterranean summers


Do I really need to say more?

Check out the images after the jump for yourself, and like I said in the beginning, be ready to book your flight ;)

A minimalistic spa design that took my breath away

Evidens de Beauté Spa in Paris designed by Emmanuelle Simon

You will often find me stating how desirable a spa feeling is for a room in the house (esp. bathroom, no surprise in that) but, please, the images you're about to see are THE definition of a spa bliss as they indeed come from the gorgeous Evidens de Beauté Spa in Paris.

Designed by architect Emmanuelle Simon, this spa is the epitome of minimalistic zen elegance, with wabi-sabi influences and an unparallel use of unrefined textures and materials on strict, simple form surfaces with a distinct lack of unnecessary embellishments and decorations.

Well technically, when I see arches I am simply sold. Nothing else needed for that matter ;)

You can read more about this project as well as see more photos on The Design Chaser and be warned, you will be needing a warm essential oil massage right after that (I know I did!)
