Countryside Mallorca Home

This beautiful Mallorca countryside hideaway is the holiday home of Mallorca resident Mercedes Lopez Coello of instagram handle @mamelopez.


The project was Mercedes’ first renovation. “I had no idea where to start,” she says. “But in the back of my mind I was very clear – I wanted to be very austere and use a lot of natural materials: wood, stone, ceramics, linen, rattan. And I wanted everything to feel that it was made by hand. Nothing is straight – a lot of these details were in the house originally. Anything that was new followed the style of the imperfections. Instead of using straight corners for the edges, they feel organic and blend in.”



The house in Moscari is where Mercedes is able to reconnect with nature and herself. “When I come here, I lay in the hammock for ten minutes and then there is a soft breeze and a sunbeam of light and butterflies,” she says. “You realise you can let go.”
