When a classic Art Nouveau era house with beautiful windows and amazing old tile floors meets ultra contemporary furniture and fittings a little magic happens. What could have been a mish mash of conflicting styles instead is super stylish and super cool. Lesseps House by Barcelona-based Meritxell Ribé and The Room Studio.
Interior designer (and real estate developer) Katty Schiebeck has a signature style. White and neutrals, organic and natural, Scandinavian meets Spanish. This 80m2 attic apartment in Barcelona epitomises the Schiebeck spirit. Classic, minimal, modern luxury.

Before I head off to a full day helping my dear husband with his Daff Design booth at the Idle Hands Art, Craft and Vintage Sale where I plan to get all of my Christmas shopping done, I thought I would share this glorious century old loft in Barcelona. Once belonging to the current owners' grandparents, the space was renovated and as much of the original detail restored while modernizing where possible. The kitchen is a fantastic, and the vaulted brick ceiling is such a beautiful reminder of the structure's history. Eclectic furnishings (including a worn leather chesterfield *GASP*) and black elements elevate the coolness factor. Via Nuevo Estilo. Decor: Luzio. Photos: Montse Garriga.
