Taking inspiration from our travels...

Here at talking points interiors we love to travel. There is nothing like some time away in new surroundings to provide inspiration.

Now that our blog is up and running, we plan to update you on our travels as and when they happen, bringing you our inspiring thoughts and fabulous finds from along the way. Over the next couple of weeks I will start our 'interior design inspirations travel blog' by featuring some of our recent destinations...

Gaucin - a beautiful white washed mountain village commanding sweeping views to Gibralter and the Rif mountains of North Africa. Situated against the looming dark backdrop of the Serrania de Ronda the village is rich with colour: white washed walls, terracotta roofs, cool green olive groves, bright red poppies, yellow mimosa and pale pink almond blossom. The village is home to a number of artists and you can see why, with it's stunning views, tranquil surroundings and array of colours. From an interior designers point of view the mixture of Roman, Moroccan, Spanish and Arab influences provided by the areas history provide a great deal of inspiration. Many of the villas still contain their old beams and Rhonda tiled floors. Our beautiful little boutique hotel Rural la Fructuosa contained an ancient wine press which has been preserved and presents a great setting for the hotels famous restaurant.
