This beautiful eighteenth century stone cottage is located in a rural area situated northeast of Catalonia, Spain. It was lovingly restored by its owner Eduardo Arruga, an interior designer and antiques dealer. Let’s take a look inside…
I was immediately drawn to the living room because the unusual color of the throw pillow. That color is almost the identical color of the tufted camelback sofa in our seaside ranch home. Believe it or not, it took me a very long time to make the color work in our house. When using that color on such a large piece of furniture there is no room for error. It is such a unique color that it either works or it doesn’t. In this beautiful space I think the designer was spot on and got it just right. The pillow works perfectly to provide just enough of an accent color to serve as a visual break from all the neutral colors in the room. Plus, it really works with the rustic qualities of the architecture and overall design scheme.
Many of the furniture pieces were custom designed by Eduardo or are from his antique shop, Lucca, located in Barcelona, Spain. This is such a beautiful home. It’s sophisticated but not stuffy and has such a quiet elegance about it.
The grounds are beautiful and if I lived here I would never leave. This plunge pool would absolutely seal the deal for me!
