In Spain the old architecture is appreciated a lot, local design studios during the reconstruction try to preserve as much of the original elements of the outdated buildings as possible. So it happened in this case: this spacious apartment in Barcelona has been restored recently, but there is much here that reminds of the past: gorgeous stucco molding, emphasizing the height of ceilings and the space, original brickwork in the kitchen, stylized in antiques and vintage furniture. Another great example of timeless design!
Although Casa Telmo hotel on the Spanish island of Menorca has only 5 rooms, the owners approached the interior design with all seriousness. The studio Quintanta Partners was involved, the premises are thought through to the smallest detail, that allowed creating a special bohemian atmosphere. The house is several hundred years old, so the rooms are imbued with the spirit of the olden days and filled with lots of interesting retro objects. Amazing place to stay!
Magnificent Paris apartments… We can talk for hours about them, they can never be confused with anything else, they never get boring. Today we have another wonderful apartment in Paris, a bit more modern than usual, but this modernity is fully justified as it blends perfectly with the elegant architectural elements of the classic Haussmann style. Enjoy!
This one of a kind home in the heart of Moscow impresses with its architecture and location. The owners of the apartment in a 100-year-old building have bought it many years ago, but it was a rental home for a long time until recently they decided to settle here. An interesting history of the house and location predetermined the design concept – the owners approached Akant studio to restore the atmosphere of the past. The second floor (once the building’s attic) was given to kids and was made in a more modern style, but the first floor reveals gorgeous sophisticated modern classic interiors. Stunning project!
Architect Pavel Zheleznov wanted to live only in the center of Moscow to be closer to his parents. Architecture, location, view from the window played a key role in the search, so Pavel has chosen a famous Bolshoi Theater workers house, which was built in 1954 and has a gorgeous facade with magnificent stucco. Inside, however, nothing said about historical greatness and there was no point in leaving anything. Pavel tried to create his own historical architecture and fill the home with things that theoretically could have been left by the former owners. Beautiful design!
We used to see such kind of interiors in the majestic old buildings rather in Paris or Madrid, but Polish capital, after all, has some gorgeous historic architecture too. The owner of this apartment, a young collector made a good effort for his dream to come true: months of searches, then several years of reconstruction and only recently he was able to move into the desired house. Designers from Mood Works studio had to remove several layers of paint and coatings from the walls and ceiling before the space could reveal all of its original beauty. This is a wonderful home!
Houses with magnificent architecture and history have always admired us. And the Scandinavians, like no other, can masterfully integrate modern design into historical buildings. This apartment in a 100-year-old house in the center of Gothenburg is just the case. The ceiling is just awesome!
In Spain people are very proud of their magnificent historical architecture, therefore often try to preserve the original structural elements of buildings when reconstructing housing, and it’s just wonderful! This small apartment in Barcelona with an area of 40 sqm looks simply charming thanks to this – beautiful vaulted ceilings definitely add romance to the interior. And if you also take into account beautiful large windows and bright decor, then the owners can only be envied. Excellent city shelter!
This magnificent mansion in Monte-Carlo was built in the early 20th century and recently got a new life thanks to the renovation by Timothy Whealon Interiors. The facade of the house stands out of the typical multi-storеy landscape of the city. Inside the mansion you would feel like in elegant Manhattan apartment. Grandeur home!
The owner of this unique historical apartment in Barcelona has very special feelings about her dwelling. She bought this flat 14 years ago, her children raised here and some of the best memories are tied to this place. It was love at first sight: magnificent modernist building in the heart of Barcelona, very high ceiling of 4.5 m, original floor tile, artistic decor – all was grandeur. So since she started the renovation several years ago she tried her best to preserve all these magnificent features. Wonderful!
