Marbella Magic

A few years ago, I came across with this beautiful home in Marbella, Spain and fell in love with so many of the details at first glance. It features such a great balance of old and new, composed in the most inviting, effortless way. The home is truly elegant without feeling too formal or stuffy. The homeowner is a woman who had lived in London for most of her life. Surprisingly, or perhaps, serendipitously, the majority of the furnishings in this home came straight out of her home in London and work beautifully in their new abode. You’ll find that this home has gorgeous bones. Combining the beautiful architecture with timeless, classic pieces and a picture-perfect setting, I would venture to say that this lucky homeowner has found her “forever home”. Who would ever want to leave?

The room itself has great bones and I love that it has maintained a casual, effortless elegance. Being a big proponent of lighting, I think the room would benefit from a chandelier, but wonder if the owners opted against one to make the room a bit less formal. What are your thoughts? Does the room need a chandelier?}

  1. Yes, I agree, the dining room n a chand. And yes, the home snd furnish are lovely and while there is a lot of symmetry, it ecle en to Be INTERESTING and NOT too formal.

  2. This home is very beautiful and really nails the look of Informal elegance. Im back and forth on the chandelier. Maybe the homeowner wanted to let the eye appreciate the stunning wallpaper without interruption. Buut i think for me i would want either a noN-formal CHANDELIER or even a candElier. This house is truly beautiful.
