Houses that inspire: summer in Formentera

The summer months arrive, the change of climate and lifestyle, at least for a few weeks. And how can it be otherwise it is time for it to be noticed in our Houses that inspire.

For this nothing better than a house of Formentera, a place that I propose that you include in your possibilities if you have not yet decided the destination of your vacation. If you have been there you will see in the photos (by Jordi Canosa) that the climate and tranquility that is breathed on the island is also transmitted through the decoration of every corner of the house.

From it we can obtain several keys. The first one, the one I just mentioned and that I personally consider one of the most important issues when decorating: the fact that it is integrated into the surrounding environment.

This house looks fresh, something necessary taking into account the day to day of the island, with features of the traditional decoration of the area such as materials and colors.

Second and closely related to this first advice, the exploitation of resources, both the house and the area. As an example, the great effort they have made to take full advantage of the natural light in the area, lightening the decoration and using light fabrics.

On the other hand they have also taken advantage of the characteristics of the house, as you see an old remodeled house, from which they have taken advantage from the kitchen walls to the wooden beams that we can see on the roof. Or even part of the furniture.

I have also loved some small decorative details, which are the ones that actually get the result we see, for example:

  1. The use of curtains with different reasons to separate the rooms, making the house a cooler and less sober place.

  2. They have painted the beams from the ceiling of one of the rooms, in the same color as the rest, in this way they have tried to integrate them to make them go unnoticed.

It is much better than removing them, since we have the opportunity to change our mind over time.

  1. The prominence of the work furniture, which while giving freshness to the house avoid the abundance of pieces resulting in a little ornate decoration.

In particular I love the bathroom furniture that you can see in the image below, which gives the room a quite natural look, you can see it in the images below.

  1. In the kitchen, the wall in brick of the kitchen, fresh and also perfect to create an impact wall.

  2. And finally the absence of handrails that totally lightens the ladder.

Of course, before you stop talking about this house, do not forget to keep an eye on the Exterior, a terrace that takes full advantage of the views, well used and, like the whole house, fully integrated with the outside.

Your summer enemy: Weeds (III)

The best defense is a good attack, and to avoid having to sweat under the sun in our garden to clean it of weeds, it is best to prevent its appearance. The fundamental thing is to prevent weeds from sprouting, depriving them of the conditions that facilitate their growth, which will be easy for you by following the steps we propose and remembering that agriculture has existed since time immemorial, so traditional methods are the most effective and , although in principle it costs us to bend our backs, in the end the result will be worth it.

Improve your lawn in four steps

Summer is the time when we enjoy the lawn of our houses but it is also the time when it suffers the most. Not only the high temperatures, but the incessant step over it end up undermining its beauty and, if we do not want to have a patatal for September (another thing is that you like it and you want to devote to the intensive cultivation of potatoes in your garden, which is an option totally respectable), we have to pamper this delicate part of the exteriors of our house.
