Previously, it was an ordinary house in Florida: unremarkable both outside and inside. But after a recent big repair it a completely different story: now everything here breathes summer. There no beige, blue and yellow tones in the decoration, only white base and all bright accents: blue, green, red. Some rooms, for example, the living room, turned out to be rather calm – there the mood is set only by bright textiles and black and white photography. But the bedrooms reveal a real riot of colors, like on a tropical island. The family room has a big window overlooking the pool and backyard – after all, bright green palms look better than any pictures. Juicy, colorful and fresh!

This modernist apartment in Barcelona needed a fresh look and a modern breath. Large openwork windows, moldings and antique batteries look original, but it was also important to let the 21st century into the house. The designer started by repainting the black fireplace in white, then complemented the vintage furniture of the 1920s with details from the 50-60’s, and finally some pieces of modern furniture. The interiors were not overloaded with complex colors and bulky items, but there was a place for such interesting objects as a hanging robe over the bed or a stack of magazines in the fireplace. Very light and inspiring home with old touches!
