Completely redesigned by Egue y Seta, this small Barcelona house was thought to maintain the rustic charm of the building and to boast a beautiful contemporary scandinavian interior design at the same time. The result was a harmonious and clever place, that can adjust to its owner’s needs.
When entering the apartment, you’ll notice how there’s this lovely open space living room waiting for you. A scandinavian inspired gray sofa and three small center tables create a delightful and cozy ambience. The living room opens up to the dining and kitchen areas. But we’ll get to that…
In the dining and kitchen area, an open shelved wall with built-in light takes all the attentions and creates a nice place for storage and decor. The light wood of the shelves, dining table, counter top and backsplash create a smooth yet gorgeous contrast against the warm exposed brick wall that was kept from the building’s original construction.
The black ironed chairs and industrial pendant lamp help create a balance with all the other smooth tones around the room. The light wooden table can comfortably sit four people, which, paired with the fact that the living room is literally one step away, creates the perfect place to host a nice dinner party.
In the bedroom area, separated from the living and dining areas by an ingeniously built-in wall/closet we can see how the same tones create a sense of harmony and continuity throughout the house. The exposed brick wall is highlighted by the white and light wooden headboard that also serves as a shelf where you can store some books, plants, a few nightlights or what suits your busy life best.
The simple white hanging light accentuates the easy nordic vibe we can feel a little bit throughout the whole house’s decor. Also, plants are everywhere, bringing some life into the bedroom and looking stunning against the light blue doors that create a passageway to the bathroom
A small and narrow window creates the possibility of a more or less private washroom area, which you can adjust to your liking. The bathroom itself is highlighted by white tiled walls, white cabinetry and two simple dark blue pendant lamps hanging just above the wash basin. The finishing touch? A couple of green plants to bring some life to the place and create a more inviting atmosphere.
