Annsofie found an incredible finca in the countryside. Once a vineyard and farmhouse, the house had been lying dormant for over 70 years and required a huge amount of work. Annsofie rolled up her sleeves and set about transforming it into a wonderful oasis, which is also enjoyed by her husband Viking and son Loke.
Today, the once derelict garden features a wonderful covered social area with bespoke corner seating built by a local carpenter and cushions from IKEA). The family also enjoy a lush pool and outdoor bar (because, why not?).
Inside, a fresh white Scandi cool palette meets the warmth of the Med. The living space is sparsely furnished with wonderful vintage pieces, many of which have been purchased in nearby Palma.
The beautiful stone walls have been left exposed around the windows and other parts of the house, adding a load of texture and warmth and ensuring the Mallorca character shines through.
Annsofie transformed a former wine cellar into an atelier from where she can paint and create ceramics.
How wonderful! What a life they’ve made for themselves!
Could you imagine moving abroad?
Many Scandinavians have made the island their home – a few of which I’ve featured in the past. Here are a few other wonderful homes to dream about today:
I’ve mentioned many times before that my older sister lives in Mallorca, and whenever I visit, I’m always tempted to stay! We haven’t been able to visit for over three years now, so I’m super excited that we’re going to visit in a few weeks. Since we’re a bit of a rowdy crowd (!) we decided to book our own villa in the same village rather than inflict ourselves on Charlie et al for an entire week! I can’t wait to see them all as well and discover more of the island. I’m also excited about visiting some of the vintage stores in Palma. I think Per’s praying I don’t stumble across a huge ceramic pot or other large item to bring back home. Trust me, it happens!
