County living: an Andalusian villa

Thursday, April 28, 2011

When it comes to astounding country villas I get totally weak in my knees. Not only do I want to pack my things and move there straight away but there's is also a deeper feeling that makes me all anxious and that has to do with my profession. I want to build one of these earthly miracles. To daydream about them and start sketching it's bones and flesh before even they have existed in the customer's imagination. It is the power of creation that I'm talking about and that tremendous strength that comes and hits me on my head whenever I bump into eclectic, country buildings, perfectly situated in natural surroundings, with all those natural materials and organic forms hiding under a dense green veil. Blogging about them sometimes feels like it's a bigger temptation than I can handle, on the other hand, however, it is vital to my existence. So I just carry on and dive even deeper into the design ocean, looking for even greater fish to catch and hope that you enjoy keeping me company on this quest.
