It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Portal State, a real estate agency in Valencia by Paloma Bau Studio.
Colour, pattern, textiles, flea market finds and carefully curated antiques. Everything considered but nothing “precious” … except the experience. The place, the memories, the lifestyle. Family and friends, the smell of the sea and a home that holds relevance to the owners. Cape Ann Summer House by Reath Design.
“Our young client was ready to make a home that felt like her own. In order to optimize the condo’s limited space, we reconfigured the layout and changed the function of certain spaces, like converting a hall closet outside of the bathroom into a built-in unit with a vanity, mirror, and storage drawers and cabinets. An open washstand with legs and light stone selections make the bathroom appear bigger, and a recessed floor length medicine cabinet prevents counter clutter. The much-loved galley kitchen, featuring antiqued stone tile and a plaster curve and vent hood, opens onto the moody dining room, the perfect setup for the owner’s many dinner parties.”
