Hi my name is Denise Hardy and I love everything in connection with the home i.e. Interior Design, Hand Painting Furniture, Decorative Painting Techniques and Art.

 

I live in Alicante, Spain with my husband in a beautiful villa which we both love and work hard on making it our home.  I have been established in creating beautiful homes since 1998 and never get tired of doing what I do.

OUR VILLA IN SPAIN

SUN LOUNGE

This room when we first moved into the villa 13 years ago, was not really used for anything.  In fact it wasn't a 'room' it was a 'balcony'.  But.. I paint artworks and needed some space to be able to 'create', but because it was all open to the weather - we decided to have some double glazed patio doors put in, which enabled me to use this space as an Artists Studio.


After some while, although we kept the villa, my husband and I moved around a lot, him though, more than me as I loved Spain too much to move permanently away.  So, we decided that we would rent an apartment by the Coast, so I was not in such a large villa on my own all the time and my husband was working in Dublin.  Therefore, we slightly altered some of the accommodation and room 'uses'.  So, I just redecorated it and tried to make it look more 'homely' rather than a room for an Artist.  This was achieved by purchasing a nice rug and some new cushions to go on the new sofa bed and bits and bats.  We purchased the Sofa Bed to enable that when we had a few guests come to stay, this bed could aso be used. 


The view from this balcony looks over our swimming pool and there are beautiful mountain views with trees around.  Although now, there are not so many trees around the house.


We moved back to the villa in 2014 and started our latest renovations.  There are still things that need doing, but we have now 'slowed down' a little and will get round to them as and when, but the majority has been completed, which you will see when you look at the pictures.  Although I still have lots more to add.  So.. keep coming back to see what other stuff we have been up to.
