Hidden beaches, seaside coves, limestone mountains, stone-built villages and a lively capital are just a few of the reasons why Mallorca is the perfect summer getaway summer after summer. While Palma attracts much of the tourism, the rustic charm of Deià, Mallorca’s small village on the northwest coast of the island is well worth a visit. Its rustic streets, sea views and idyllic fairytale landscape have long been a well-kept secret among celebrities and artists. And now rejuvenated by the alchemy of new innovation, it’s time that we all indulge in this charming slice of Balearic heaven.

British designer, Matthew Williamson is among the creative set who fell under Deià’s spell - so much so, that he decided to live there half the year. “I fell in love with Deià from the moment I first visited. It’s one of the places where I feel most creative,” says the designer. So in a united effort to introduce travelers to the beauty of Deià, Williamson teamed up with Deià’s beloved luxury hotel, Belmond La Residencia to design an enchanting new suite that is officially unveiled to guests.

“Belmond La Residencia has a magic and soul…. [And] there’s that moment looking out over rural Deià from the pool you never forget. Its heritage will never go out of fashion,” says Arnaud Champenois, Belmond’s Senior Vice President of Marketing & Brand. “Matthew Williamson’s design has that same carefree charm and a confidence in color that fits so well within the walls of Suite 67. You feel his love and knowledge of Deià spilling out from the design and that’s why we had to use Matthew on this project.”

The suite features a bedroom, bathroom and luxurious living area, mirroring Deià’s rustic decadence and fusion of Williamson’s own DNA. His trademark colors, playful designs and hand-drawn fauna and floral patterns can be found throughout the suite.

“Gathering the items for suite 67 was a real labor of love,” says Williamson, who also made sure to fill the space with locally sourced pieces from Mallorca. The curation aims to “enhance a distinct and fabulous color scheme inviting contemporary travelers with a taste for heritage…. Where one can relax, indulge, escape and dream,” says the hotel’s press release.

Handmade ceramic lamps from Portugal with block printed shades, John Derian’s botanical art, Williamson’s colorful wallpaper and upholstery fabric, and hand-painted “his and her” Spanish wardrobes are some of the design elements that make the suite a homey, but decadent and international home away from home.
