There are places where the sun shines almost all year round and it is not necessary to wait until summer returns to contemplate the blue sea from a warm terrace. The town of Gaucín, in Málaga, is one of these privileged enclaves with views of the coast, including Morocco. There we found this cozy apartment, located in a penthouse with terrace and with a toned decoration until in the last corner. The goal was to open the door to the beautiful surroundings throughout the year.

The resources used to achieve this are based almost entirely on color; with a balanced palette centered on the white and the blue, to which elements of natural wood To heat the spaces. The decoration, very simple, was completed with structural details and moroccan style furniture; The tiles of the kitchen, the cupboard and the arches that communicate some environments stand out. Its square floor favored a very well organized distribution, with the common areas connected to each other and located in the center, and two bedrooms - one double and one with two beds - each with its own bathroom.

The delicacy of the white-patterned furniture and the warm textiles chosen for the rest areas were the key when it came to achieving that quiet and harmonious atmosphere so necessary in a home designed for rest. Even in the bathrooms, the softness of the coverings, in tan color, and with a decoration in which the furniture of classic style stands out.
