Just seven months after the first spade was put into the ground, Amber International Developments – led by founder and expert project manager Gray Gillot – have completed work on their latest project, an impressive six-bedroom traditional finca built on the side of a mountain with views over the Mediterranean and surrounding countryside.
It’s no surprise that the whimsical and wonderful La Galeria Elefante becomes a winter wonderland at Christmas time in Ibiza, with a plethora of gorgeous decorations to choose from and to suit all tastes. From elegant angels and hand-painted unique ornaments to religious candles, creative lighting and the island’s best selection of Christmas cards, the decorating possibilities are endless. Photo gallery below.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Ibiza living showroom Magazin… a sophisticated, subtle and stylish Christmas! Stunning table settings are their forte – ranging form rustic chic, in neutral tones and using elements of nature, to bright colourful vintage-esque creations and bold, metallic centrepieces. Photo gallery below.
For those who prefer a twist on tradition, Lotus present a novel way to present your Christmas decorations in your Ibiza home… rather than lug a hefty tree up your camino, why not delicately dangle your decs from existing pieces in your home, such as chandeliers or wooden beams? Or, if you prefer something even more understated, try beautiful bowls of baubles, or trays lined with trinkets… Photo gallery below.
‘I love living here,’ says Mercedes Bonet of the home she shares with husband Juan Tur and children Juan Petit and Berta in Ibiza’s beautiful Cala Jondal area. ‘The only problem I have – honestly – is that I haven’t got space for my clothes!’
This is no surprise when you learn the stylish mum is also the co-owner of Ibiza’s number one designer boutique, Mayurka!
En route to Es Vedra, via the rolling green hills of San Jose, is a destination that is as much a priority to visit: KsaR Living, the spectacular interiors showroom and store at Cala Carbo and Ibiza’s premier locale for those looking to turn their house into a home or fully equip their Ibiza villa for a luxury rental, from sheets, towels and glassware to finishing touches like candles and decor.
Translating in Arabic to palace, KsaR is an apt description for the space. Alberto describes the KsaR style as holiday architecture, based around natural stones and wood, rustic yet exotic, a tactile mix of cultures and colours with the aim to make you feel simultaneously at home and on holiday.
The mustard-yellow façade of Ibiza furniture store Magazin gives little clue as to what lies beyond its entrance. Focusing on quality, craftsmanship and durability, Florian Hachfeld sources his wares from diverse manufacturers and designers across the globe.
In the garden, you’ll find a colossal array of outdoor furniture and accessories, such as chic white sun lounges, recycled wooden furnishings, sophisticated wooden dining settings, ornately carved four poster day beds, oriental wooden doors and tribal statues or Buddhas to guard your gardens.
