This article is dedicated to those who are renovating their first home or want to change their look without disruption.
Today’s apartment is an example of how a simple, antique, but very dated property can be transformed into a space in line with the tastes and the natural need for modernity and comfort of those who live there. All low budget, without too much effort and not being afraid to dare with contrasting combinations. Creativity always manages to give life to unique experiences!
The house of these images is located in a historic building in Barcelona and is 70 square meters, a fairly common size for a young couple. The owners are a young family with a small child. He is a designer, she is a language teacher and has not really conventional tastes. They asked the studio Egue y Seta to take care of the renovation, following which the house took on a totally new, more modern and lively aspect, in line with the tastes of the two young inhabitants, who were able to create delicate alchemy between invention and tradition.
Walls, ceilings, and doors have all been painted white, while light parquet flooring has been laid on the floor. The original idea was to play with color, highlighting portions of walls and objects with brightly colored spots.
The decor is eclectic and consists essentially of classic design pieces. Here is how you can combine the nostalgia of the past, represented by the era and the structure of the house, with the design and spirit of modernity.
Sometimes it takes little to change the look of your apartment to get unexpected results. Choosing a new color for curtains, covering a sofa, painting the walls by daring with colors, are just some little tricks that can help you reinvent a somewhat dated context.
