A self-confessed perfectionist (“I am just like Monica from friends,” she assures us while fluffing perfect pillows, re-arranging pristine flowers and neatening stacks of Ibiza-themed magazines), Bonita’s eye for style is evident in every corner, on every shelf or hanging from every hook throughout the intimate apartment space. “We did the apartment very quickly,” she says of the creative process. “Once we know what we want, my husband and I just go for it.”
The impressive collection of urban art lining the wall is a testament to David’s taste – an avid collector, he boasts pieces of many different styles, ranging from Renaissance and old masters through to contemporary names such as Damien Hirst throughout their properties in Chelsea and the Cotswolds, however the Ibiza apartment called for something with a more vibrant, modern edge.
Describing the old town location – set just off the bustling square of Plaza del Parque and main street of Vara de Rey – as “absolutely perfect”, Bonita and David have everything they need in Ibiza at their fingertips, from fabulous restaurants, bars and cafes to stylish shops and the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site Dalt Vila.
Just five minutes from Pacha (“I love it on a Tuesday! It’s my era, I have all the clothes,” says Bonita of Flower Power), Heart (“Ohhh I love, LOVE Heart!”) and Lio (“The costumes and the dancers are just fabulous,”), where she’s been known to get up on stage, the couple hire a car whenever they wish to explore the rest of island. “We just get lost,” says Bonita. “We drive, we walk on the beach, sit under pine trees, we find somewhere for lunch, it’s just amazing. We don’t get to the island very often, but in three years we have done it all.”
