The implementation of simple ideas, but with spectacular results, is glimpsed in every detail of the decoration of this apartment, about 100 m², located in a residential area of ​​the Costa del Sol. Its owners - a couple with children - acquired it because it was very close to the family home where they had always spent the summer.

The windows, oriented to practically all cardinal points, facilitate the creation of air currents in the summer, a feeling of freshness that was enhanced by painting the walls white, while the thickness of its walls provides good thermal insulation when they come in winter vacations. The owner personally took care of the decoration of the floor, and it was considered as a long-term occupation, without hurry or predetermined schemes, enjoying the selection of each object found in street markets, mortars and trips. In other cases, he resorted to solutions full of ingenuity. For example, the sofa and the armchairs were a gift from the former owners of the apartment. As his upholstery did not like, he covered them with simple white cotton covers. The dining table was solved with a board and two borriquetas, hidden under a plain skirt and a cloth acquired on a trip to Morocco.
