The folks at Barcelona-based YLAB Arquitectos sent along details of this sleek, modern project they recently completed. I really love all of the storage areas they introduced (oh to have that much space to put allllll of my stuff) and the graphic black areas that catch your eye. The owners, a couple in love with Barcelona, wanted to refurbish this apartment to enjoy the proximity to the sea and the quietness of this part of the city. They wanted to convert their two bedroom apartment into a comfortable and functional one bedroom home while having the main areas connected and open to the terrace through a spectacular window with views to the park and the sea. Ylab Arquitectos proposed a complete new layout, prioritizing the communal space formed by the kitchen and the living room, aligned with the master bedroom along one large window.
What do you get when you unite some glorious marble, brass accents, retro-vibe lighting, herringbone hardwood floors and lots of molding detail? The most beautiful classic kitchen you ever did see! Designed by Joanna Lavén.
Courtney Applebaum is an interior designer based in Los Angeles and I love her approach to design. Minimal, impactful, eclectic, elegant. A bit random – just how I like it.
The armoire in the photo below caught my attention. Must show this to handy husband. 🙂
If I ever wanted to redo my house in pared back, earthy neutrals with a Scandinavian minimalist vibe, I would want it to look exactly like this. This remodeled Victorian townhouse in East London was designed by London-based studio Daytrip and is currently for sale via The Modern House.
