A traditional finacs rústicas in the quiet of Ibiza’s north, built over generations, invites an easy-going island lifestyle. Get the look with richly coloured decor and rugs which make a statement against cool, crisp walls and surfaces.

The dry heat, rocky landscapes and deafening chorus of cicadas may not represent the usual clean-lined, minimalist visions of Ibiza. But for Roze de Witter and Pierre Traversier, this other worldliness is exactly why they chose to settle here, in the party island’s quiet northern country.


Eclectic mixes of second-hand finds form the basis of a decor best described as pre-loved.
