Apartment in Barcelona

Second house tour for you today, dears!

This late 19th century apartment in Barcelona used to be quite dark, not because of the lack of windows but because what is now a spacious living and dining area used to be three different rooms separated by walls and halls. By knocking these walls down a single big space full of light and brightness was created. The original parquet herringbone flooring was restored and walls and ceiling were painted white.

Eclectic style with an interesting blend of modern and antique furniture. A reclaimed stone balustrade was used as a lamp base.

Wish there was a better photograph of the fireplace which is totally made of marble.

A Gustavian style console was placed behind the sofa.

Louis XVI armchair in this reading nook between the living room and dining area.

Antique leather upholstered chairs are combined with two white modern chairs in the dining room. The pictures on the wall are by Enrique Brinkmann.

The L shaped kitchen opens onto a balcony.

The bar in the kitchen is used both for storage space and as a breakfast table.

Marble sink and white lacquered modern cabinets.

I'm quite perplexed about seeing the same picture of an old lady both in the master bedroom and the living room.

The other side of the master bedroom.

A French stool stands in front of an antique gold gilded mirror.

A marble sink embedded into a slab of wood in the powder room.

Hope you've enjoyed today's tours. Have a great day my friends!

  1. This is very chic :) But more I like the Danish house in previous posting. Perhaps the reason is, that I also live in Scandinavia, it feels like home to me :)

  2. Stunning! I love the fact that it feels so warm and inviting despite the fact that it is predominantly white.

    A fantastic mix of old and new and some very stylish picture hanging.

    One of my favourite posts so far!

  3. really pretty! you had me at parquet floors. I especially love the little footstool below the large mirror in the master bedroom. I want to copy that look. Also loving the pops of red... just in time for the holidays.
