17th century Andalusian country house in Carmona, Spain

Country-House-Spain-01-1 Kindesign

The reform of this country house, a Moorish building of the 17th century, was carried out by designer Javier González Sánchez-Dalp, located in the town of Carmona, in the province of Seville, Spain. The designer was given a carte-blanche to let loose on his creativity, creating a very personal space infused with natural light. When the homeowner found the home, it was in a total state of abandonment, needing to undergo a huge effort to rehabilitate this historical treasure. Converting this structure to a vacation home required removing previous interventions and construct new walls. Additional space was accrued by creating a second level as well as outdoor living spaces. Walls were knocked down to create a gallery space next to the lower patio, offering a natural cave with marble columns and stone arches. There is also a swimming pool incorporated into this spectacular outdoor space.

The project was completed with careful attention to detail, respecting local traditions of Andalusian aesthetics, white and green lime-plastered walls, stucco, terra-cotta floors and stone. Furnishings and decor includes a nice selection of antique pieces of the 17th and 18th century and from diverse places of Morocco, Turkey, Spain, France and England, all masterfully blended together to create an aesthetic balance.

Thank you for sharing these photos. For me, the most delightful yet anchoring aspects of this home are the rustic ceilings and floors. These coupled with the basic white palette and vaulted ceilings give a feeling of warm spaciousness. The artwork throughout is its own experience and the quaint furniture and room shapes give an old-world charm. What a lovely, friendly place.
