Home & Away

In the buzzing district of Santa Catalina in Palma de Mallorca, Danish interior designer and retailer Tine Kjeldsen has created a holiday apartment that combines laid-back family living with an all-natural, layered aesthetic.

One of two double beds in the large bedroom that is shared by homeowner Tine Kjeldsen’s three children, Klara, Tilde and Konrad. The floral cushions in Liberty fabrics, the wall-mounted metal reading lamps, the rattan-framed mirrors, the round palm-leaf mat and the textured bed linen are all by Tine K Home.

Interior designer Tine Kjeldsen’s holiday home in Palma de Mallorca is situated in the historic district of Santa Catalina. The corner apartment is on the first floor and looks out onto a tree-lined side street.

An inviting couch occupies one corner of the living and dining room. The floor tiles are original fixtures, while the interior walls have been plastered but left unpainted, giving them a unique look that works beautifully with the other natural textures, which are brought in via the furniture and decor. The tin-framed mirrors, couch, rattan coffee table, side table, wooden stool, brass table lamp, throws and cushions are all by Tine K Home (tinekhome.com).

A palette of natural tones creates a neutral backdrop against which the black and white patterned crockery has a graphic boldness. The crockery, like the antique brass tray, the charcoal linen napkin and the tea glasses, is by Tine K Home (tinekhome.com).

Light streams into the dining area though the refurbished wood and glass doors. The traditional Mallorcan floor tiles add colour and pattern to the space, while the interior walls have been plastered but left unpainted, giving them a unique textured look. The rattan chairs and round wood and bamboo dining table are all easy to move around in the space as required. The table, chairs and bamboo stool are all by Tine K Home (tinekhome.com).

A bed built into an alcove in the large bedroom that is shared by homeowner Tine Kjeldsen’s three children, Klara, Tilde and Konrad. A glass-fronted white wooden cabinet (the twin of the one used for storage and display in the living and dining area) contains bed linen and baskets, all of which — like the bamboo ladder, the wooden stool and the textiles on the bed itself — is by Tine K Home (tinekhome.com).

The compact bathroom is situated behind the kitchen; sliding doors off the main bedroom and large children’s bedroom allow access to it from two sides. The striped floor tiles in this space are new: they are Moroccan in origin and are part of the Tine K Home collection (tinekhome.com). The basin is made of black stone and is beautifully complemented by the sculptural wall-mounted metal lamp, which is also by Tine K Home.
