Interior designer Pili Molina has given this floor a touch of madness with pieces full of emotion. The original mix captivates since the hall, the axis of distribution of all the rooms: living room, with access to the terrace, kitchen with office, bathroom and two bedrooms, one of them with access to another terrace. When making the project a reality, and given the dimensions of the apartment, it was essential to choose few elements, lightweight design (openwork, open modules, light fronts, visually expanding mirrors …) and of reduced dimensions, which enhance a fluid and dynamic distribution. Along with the furniture, the selection of accessories stands out, many of them rescued from small shops and markets.

The oak laminate flooring of the whole house is transformed into white and gray stoneware in the bathroom and kitchen. The walls alternate neutral or color paint and bold wallpapers, both in the living room and in the master bedroom. From here, the ban on color and passion for it opens. vintage plus trendy. It is impossible to resist the symphony of light, materials and colors of this floor. How much vitality!
