A stately home with vintage & recycled furniture

A stately home with vintage & recycled furniture

As soon as they saw her, the owners of this house in Barcelona fell in love with her stately style, of its imposing facade, with ladder and classic balustrade, and of his beautiful windows with tricolor stained glass that moved them to times past. From the beginning they were clear that they would respect and maintain that spirit of yesteryear; Therefore, the only reform they undertook was to update their facilities and paint. The pavement, in good condition, and the distribution are also the originals.

There was only one air left vintage to the interiors so that everything fit together. An easy goal to achieve, as many of the old furniture in the house were preserved. They were of different origin and design, but now, painted white, they share the same look, in line with this new stage of housing, where the sobriety and label of other times gives way to a more natural and retro style with a mixture of textures and soft brushstrokes, which draw the textiles.

As an example, the lounge relax, in the most luminous part and with better views of the house. It is a space raised as a gathering and rest area, for which a work bench was commissioned with fluffy cushions. He is accompanied by a couple of low tables, some accessories factory & vintage, and a sisal carpet that makes it ultra warm. In contrast, the dining room. Here, time seems to have stopped, since the original hydraulic pavement and a bicycle, almost a museum, hanging on the wall, make up a unique setting for retro furniture. A special atmosphere and consistent with the personal style of this house.

House plan and distribution ideas

The challenge in this Barcelona house is the optimal distribution of the room, for its difficult floor:
- Its distribution it is very conditioned by the glass facade and with two corners in chamfer; but also through the double leaf door, which gives access to the house, and in front of it it was necessary to guarantee the circulation.
- The solution: a different environment on each side of the door. On the right, a work bench in L was made to measure, open to the windows, and that allows the passage. On the left, in a smaller space, a reading corner was created with a floor lamp and two armchairs; These can be moved to expand the number of seats.
