Are you one of the lucky ones who bought a traditional home in the Canary Islands? As an interior designer I know how the sound of the word “renovation” can be scary but, having a traditional home most likely means you have a few things to fix and this is where I can help you. We all fall in love with the charm of old, typical constructions without thinking about the practical side of it. Today I want to introduce you to what it may be the perfect interior design style if you decide to renovate a traditional home: #ModernRustic.

This is a very exciting interior décor option that perfectly blends the antique features of your home with a more modern and contemporary design. A modern rustic home should present an open floor plan, modern furniture and exposed architectural elements. I personally love the stone and wood elements present in traditional Majorero homes in the Canary Islands. You should aim for an informal elegance for a comfortable modern living space.

Usually, traditional homes have the luxury to come with a huge plot. Therefore, nature is all around you and you should make it part of your interior design. One thing you could do is to build big windows to let inside as much #NaturalLight as possible. It is important to preserve the original details of an old home like a stone wall or what is called “the fifth wall”, I’m talking about the ceiling. I love when the ceiling is covered with wood as it adds so much character to a living room or bedroom.
