The comprehensive reform of this duplex, with interior design by the interior architecture studio Ingrid Matheu, reflects the contemporary lifestyle of the family that inhabits it, mainly through a careful selection of materials. To facilitate the day-to-day, the functionality of the spaces has been prioritized through the design of custom furniture. The project, located in Barcelona, has two floors that have allowed zoning day and night.
A fully open day zone
The first floor has been allocated to the day area. Here most of the space is dedicated to the kitchen, with its dining area and high bar, and the living room, comfortable and cozy, decorated in neutral tones and open to the terrace.
The use of natural light has been squeezed to the maximum. A totally open space has been generated, in such a way that the kitchen is integrated into the living room and the entrance. The oak wood flooring dominates the entire room, helping to enhance this integrating effect. This type of noble material, natural oak wood, is a constant throughout the home, also used in custom-designed furniture by the studio itself and in signature carpentry.
A night area with the joy and temperance of turquoise blue
On the upper floor of the duplex is the family rest area. The master suite is an oasis in white, the headboard has been made to measure in oak and has two niches that double as a bedside table.
One of the walls has been covered with a cheerful and floral wallpaper in turquoise blue from the collection Van gogh by BN Wallcoverings. The set is completed by a very functional table and chair for the necessary hours of teleworking.
The turquoise blue color has been chosen because it generates “joy and temperance, from the kitchen to the bathrooms,” explains Ingrid Matheu.
The shape of the beveled tiles in the suite bathroom, in brilliant turquoise blue, are a tribute to London Underground stations.
“Our intention is to reflect the soul of our clients through the interior design project, creating a space where through our work, they can travel through their memories,” says the interior designer.
A children’s room to play and rest
The room for the little ones in the house is a great refuge that offers moments to play, to rest, even to invite friends to sleep … The ceiling has been covered in blue sheets creating different slopes, which gives a greater sense of spaciousness and depth . The versatility of this space allows it to be adapted as children grow older and need to change the areas now used for games for other areas for study.
