Attic apartment in Barcelona

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. 

P.S. If you are not already you must really become addicted to her blog Somewhere I would like to live.

A stand-out home

I thought it would be interesting to show a home that is just about the exact opposite from my last post. This one is bold, bright, graphic and not at all subtle in its styling. Nonetheless, it is pretty cool too. By Barcelona interior designer Jamie Beriestain

A century old loft in Barcelona

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.

An eclectic home by Marta de la Rica

A little art deco, and little mid-century modern, a little retro 50s....this home decorated by Madrid-based designer Marta de la Rica is about as eclectic as they come. And I absolutely adore it because it is such a random mix of styles. Eclectic wins me over every time.

Modern design with traditional materials. Now this is how you do countryside living! From Spanish architects Anna & Eugeni Bach. The local building regulations are straightforward, specifying mere general characteristics for the new houses, such as stone cladding, or sloped roofs with “arab” tiles. The main aim of these regulations is to lead new buildings to look like old rural houses, the so called Catalan “masias”. Rather than portraying a traditional rural house, the project looks for another type of a relationship to the countryside, making a connection to the farm storages around this area. The spatial organisation of the house follows the logic of a warehouse, generating a large volume within which smaller units are placed, to offer intimacy. Bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms are placed in “boxes” inside the “storage”. Between these, crossed views and circulations offer direct relationships to the landscape around the house.
