Looking out the window of the house and finding the sea is a dream that many have. For this reason, when our reader Aurora bought this 74 square meters floor Located in the Riviera del Sol Urbanization in Mijas Costa, the first decision he made was to tear down the walls that prevented him from seeing the Mediterranean. The flat was built in the 70s and belonged to a foreign marriage of older people who spent their holidays here. When Aurora was done with him he had to mediate first legally with a squatting and then, reform through, with an interior that was claustrophobic and very outdated facilities.

After the comprehensive reform, now the flat consists of a large open space They share the kitchen, living room and dining room and has a large corner window overlooking the sea. The rest of the house, which is rented as a holiday residence, is divided between the entrance, a bedroom and a bathroom. In the style industrial elements are mixed with furniture vintage, friendly design of Nordic lines and Mediterranean colors and finishes. Aurora has chosen pieces of Ikea and small local stores and markets that she has combined with findings she has made on Amazon and DIY projects.
