An elegant floor with blue touches

An elegant floor with blue touches

Mauricio Fuertes

It is a delight to visit this Barcelona floor when the intense light seeps through the windows and floods everything. Although the home base was good, needed a reform to gain breadth and connection between environments. The interior designer Meritxell Ribé was in charge of giving her a new image, fresh and impeccable. All the chosen pieces, as well as the finishes, unify the environments, with Nordic style winks through the use of wood and soft tones.

The presence of the blue color in accessories and textiles brings that calm Mediterranean air, over a range of white, soft gray and earth. In remodeling, in addition to open the kitchen to the hall and the living room and integrating the bathroom and dressing room into the master bedroom, a natural white oak parquet floor was installed, the doors were washed in white and paneled the fronts of the entrance and bedroom closets. All the walls of the day area were covered with a natural linen textile paper, from Vescom, in earth tones. From the living room you can access a multifunctional room through sliding doors, located next to the dining room. The natural light that seeps through the window reaches the kitchen by removing part of one of the partitions and replacing it with a vain with a breakfast bar.

The master bedroom has been conceived by the interior designer as a suite with dressing room and bathroom. A glass partition separates these two environments and at the same time favors visual continuity. Meritxell devised this solution so that the bathroom, an interior room, also received natural light from the bedroom. This maintains the decorative unit with the rest of the house and boasts privacy. It is the chromatic flashes that provide dynamism and an extra warmth. This house wraps with an interior design that conveys peace.

A luxury Mauricio Fuertes

Through a glazed window of generous dimensions the day area connects with the outside. The terrace, with a pavement of wooden slats, transitions and becomes an extension of being in the summer months. A flying bookcase cabinet, which hides the audiovisuals behind a sliding panel, presides over the living room.

The crux of the matter

The decoration and distributive solutions that have been projected in the reform were aimed at communicating the spaces and making the spatial organization natural, practical and surprising.

Of ten!

After the dining room, one of the rooms became a guest bedroom, sitting area and office. With a pampered decoration, it is conceived as a space attached to the dining room, separated by two sliding doors. A sofa bed was chosen, upholstered in gray linen fabric and oak legs. The walls were painted blue to reinforce the feeling of depth.

Color resources

White, blue and wood predominate in the finishes throughout the house and achieve that appreciated effect of unity in all spaces. The dining room stays true to the style with exquisite pieces for its simplicity: a table of rounded lines in wood and chairs that introduce color.

The wood, infallible finish

The project is articulated around this warm and elegant material. It is present on the floor, covered with a natural parquet in aged oak, and in the furniture throughout the house. Mantra table lamp Looker (www.mantrailuminacion.com).

The kitchen

It gains in luminosity when demolishing one of the partitions and transforming it into a breakfast and fast food bar, on which two current lamps with the color cable are suspended.The absence of door also integrates it into the hall of the house.

The original black and gray countertop has been replaced by one in white stone, coordinated with the microcement floor. A stone lining, from Kerlite, protects the front of the work area.

The countertop is made with the same wood in natural oak as the parquet of the house, model Century white, by Winco, acquired and installed by Studioparquet.

Warm welcome

One of the objectives of the reform was to unify spaces, while maintaining the functionality and personality of each. This is how this finish was designed for the hall, which integrates the access door and a closet thanks to a paneling of white wooden slats.

The carpets

They give a ground-level style lesson. Each room sports a suitable model. Prints and colors monopolize looks without reducing lightness to the environments. This geometric motif belongs to the design that covers the floor in the hall area.

Rest area

The wallpaper that covers all the walls personalizes this space, decorated in neutral tones, that calm and pause the rhythm. The fabrics take care of the warmth and make a bright bedroom unique. To the left of the image you can see the detail of the cabinets, paneled with white wood slats, the same resource used in the hall.

The play of light

One of the objectives of the home remodeling project was for natural light to reach every corner. In addition, the planning of the luminaires creates a calm atmosphere in each room through design models.

United environments

The dressing room and bathroom, although independent, communicate visually through a glazed partition, which filters the light from the bedroom to the bathroom. The Mediterranean style with Nordic brushstrokes is maintained in this environment. Here,
The dresser acts as a dressing table with a mirror and a ceiling lamp.

The main front of the bathroom determines the style with its marked blue glass tile cladding with metallic sparkles.
The rest of the walls and floor have been coated with white microcement. It is the contrast that marks the aesthetic with success.

Project plan and ideas

- Gain brightness in the rooms. It has been achieved by unifying and opening the spaces and using a color palette of soft tones and earth.
- Get a feeling of visual amplitude. Here the absence of visual barriers intervenes as partitions or large furniture.
- Unity and decorative balance. Got! Through simple furniture, soft lines and low height, which gives prominence to accessories, textiles and auxiliary parts.
