The ideal interior in our understanding is when the first-class design meets magnificent architecture. This is what happened in one apartment in Barcelona: here we have gorgeous space, plenty of natural light, and a great sense of style by designers from Meritxell Ribe. Enjoy!
The design of this spacious home in the heart of Barcelona can be described as “a playful summer mood in a beautiful mordernist building.” The base of the apartment pays tribute to the house’s historical past – beautiful stucco and cool Spanish floor tiles ennoble the space. The decoration of the interiors is bright, modern, minimalistic, with an abundance of wood to create an even warmer atmosphere. Beautiful and cheerful home!
This luxury apartment in Barcelona is first and foremost striking with a large collection of paintings – all the pieces are bright and extraordinary, and have a special place in this home. Thanks to the classic forms and white color, it was possible to find a perfect mix “ludicrous” and “too boring”. The large white and gold bathroom attracts special attention as it’s glamour and gorgeous.
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!
A bright, stylish and unforgettable mix of styles and colors – is the main idea behind the interiors of this spacious apartment in Barcelona. Look at the living room: the cheerful pink shades prevail in the upholstery and decor, but at the same time the walls and the ceiling are finished with bricks and concrete. The kitchen surprises with its dark, almost black scheme. The bedroom is a Scandinavian space in neutral tones. And there is also an absolutely magnificent terrace with outdoor furniture for full relaxation. Wonderful project!
We are used to the fact that Spanish interiors are always light and warm spaces, restrained tones, the emphasis is on natural light and beautiful historical architecture. But this apartment in the center is something very special and out of the ordinary. The interiors are designed in a playful colorful manner in bright pastel shades, and the bizarre rounded forms were inspired by art deco trend which is so popular nowadays. By the way, the apartment was created for a young fashion designer, which explains a lot. Hope you’ll like it!
To create the interiors of this apartment in Barcelona, Russian designers Oleg Klodt and Anna Agapova started at the stage of buying real estate – the client wanted to have a home with an interesting and functional plan. The architecture of this apartment in the heart of the city is just gorgeous: ceiling moldings, floor mosaic, original doors and handles. However, the former color scheme of decoration was gloomy. The designers added white and pastel colors, decorated the rooms with vintage furniture, and the apartment played with new colors. A wonderful mix of vintage and modern!
A young couple lives in this positive and bright house near Barcelona. They moved here quite recently and were very worried that the move would be painful. That is why it was important for the designer to create the most comfortable and happy environment. Yellow color and natural materials have perfectly helped in this. There is a bright open area of the kitchen-dining room-living where the owners can receive guests, and the veranda to spend long days in the summer, and the fireplace to sit by in winter. Warm and welcoming!
The building in Barcelona, where this apartment is located, can tell a lot as it was built in the late 19 th century. But despite all the rich history and magnificent architecture, the dwelling until recently was in an abandoned state. Most importantly – it got very little light, the rooms were gloomy and unattractive. It was this problem that designers tried to solve in the first place: they demolished the excess walls, increased the windows and just let in the daylight into the house. Now, it seems that these updated interiors are ready for 100 more years!
Not everyone has the opportunity to live in a country house, as some people need to be closer to work, and others just do not have enough money. The owners of this apartment in Barcelona always dreamed of living outside the city, and simply decided to recreate such an environment in their city home. High vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, natural furniture and textiles – all the essential attributes of a large house are presented here in this beautiful apartment. Great project!
