Serene in the South







Today we'll take a break from the chilly February weather and imagine we're in the south of France, strolling through green meadows shaded by lime and horse chestnut trees towards this cabin of eucalyptus wood and cedar shingles, all surrounded by a spectacular scented garden of jasmine, roses and hydrangeas designed by landscape architect Fernando Caruncho. A former pheasant farm, it's now the country retreat of decorator Isabel López-Quesada decorator.

Inside, walls of corrugated iron recovered from a nearby old house adds texture and an industrial chic, while a mix of vintage and classic modern pieces furnish the rooms throughout. Relaxed and lovely, it's the ideal retreat from the city — and the winter cold, too. More here from Elle Decor Spain.

Love the recycling use of old rusty metal barn roofing on the walls.
