RENOVATION OF AN ELEGANT APARTMENT WITH "A LOT OF ART"
The living room is one of the pieces in which we worked years ago, and that today is even more valid with respect to the new reform. Here, the work consisted of reupholstering some of the pieces that had deteriorated due to daily use. A great deal of work was therefore carried out to restore and update the old tapestries that hung on the walls. In this way, the fabrics regained their original vibrancy and colour.
To our pride and satisfaction, there are clients who visit us periodically to adapt their daily spaces to the generational changes that are taking place in their lives. The case of Ginger apartment is a good example of this. Update after update, we have been adapting a great flat.
Living room design with bar at home
The owners contacted us with the aim of converting one of the three living rooms in the day area of this flat into a fantastic and glamorous bar. They fancied remodelling this space to transform it into a meeting place for family and friends.
With the children already at university, allocating a few metres to this task, the square metre yield of the intervention was guaranteed and justified. In keeping with the classic character they wanted to give to the story, we decided to travel aesthetically to a New York hotel cocktail bar. An after-work cocktail bar, where brokers in striped shirts and braces could well be drinking dry martinis.
In the moodboard we are presenting, a backdrop of aged black oak panelling was proposed. This element guarantees a perimeter with equal parts character and warmth. In addition, black marble was chosen with white trims for the bar counter. Something that ensures a touch of distinction on which to serve cocktails. The chromatic contrast was implemented in orange tones through the different upholstery elements. Stools and sofas dress up this distinguished meeting and enjoyment space at night.
A decoration with authentic works of art
There are interventions in which the artistic heritage of the property is of special importance. For this reason, the work of selection and adaptation to the different spaces, of such pictorial personalities, ends up defining the aesthetic character of the space itself.
Far from trying to blend the pieces into their surroundings, the decision was precisely the opposite. The works of art that dress the flat had to stand out and take on the prominence they deserved. This is where the selection of the lighting equipment takes on special importance. In fact, it has been the key to success so that canvases and tapestries are perceived in all their splendour.
Refurbishment and new ideas for decorating bedrooms
Once the general flooring had been changed throughout the house and the entire property had been painted, the renovation plan for this 300m2 flat moved on to the night area. Here we completely refurbished the suite and the children's bedrooms, which had to be remodelled to adapt them to their new use.
The master bedroom underwent a complete transformation. The dressing room, the bathroom and the bedroom were changed. In the same way, a change in the location of one of the partitions allowed the washbasin to be given a few extra centimetres. This reform made it possible to change the layout, giving the washbasin unit more prominence and making it possible to install one for each member of the family.
In children's bedrooms, the transition process from childhood to adolescence determines a series of changes in habits and personality. All of this conditions the morphology and aesthetics of the living space. From teddy bears and legos, we move on to the large study desk with the gamer's computer. This is the logical sequential step, which determines changes towards more sober tones. But which at the same time allows for original gestures, such as choosing a paper with mathematical formula motifs.
Ideas for decorating a double bedroom
The double bedroom is undoubtedly one of the most well-appointed rooms in the ensemble. Being a room with generous space, the script allowed us to place different modern and functional ornaments and accessories. For this reason, we installed a bench in front of the bed and a large chest of drawers, which doubles as a support console. This furniture is made of oak stained to match the colour of the general parquet.
Two large bedside tables take up the volume and proportion appropriate to the width of the transversal space. They also serve as a support for everyday functionality. The colourful bedspread is by all means the piece that gives the ensemble the magic and brightness to match the personality of the guests.
How to decorate a wall recess? Decorative niches
At the end of the long corridor that leads to the bedrooms, coming from the entrance hall, we find the hallway to the bedrooms, one of the hinge rooms of the house. In this space we wanted to find the axis of the corridor's vanishing point by placing a niche that directed the view towards a wooden carving of Asian origin. This brightly coloured piece contrasts with the simple lines of the wardrobe and thus highlights the personality of the small sculpture.
Without a doubt, we are very grateful to be part of this 300m2 flat renovation. We are delighted that homeowners like those of the Ginger Apartment come to visit us again. But even more that they come with new projects in mind. Thank you very much for trusting our team and see you next time.
DESIGN HOUSES WITH A BAR
In the central area of the flat we find a space converted into a bar, in pure New York style. Marble bar, minimalist style furniture and a sober style decoration dress up this creative space.
DECORATION WITH PERSONALITY
The decoration of Ginger Apartment is a work of art. Different pieces of design run through each of the spaces in the flat, making each one of them a highly original piece. Paintings, designer furniture and other decorative accessories decorate the entrance and living room of this dream flat.
A BATH FOR ALL
A change in the location of one of the partitions made it possible to give the washbasin a few extra centimetres, making it possible to change the layout, giving the washbasin unit more prominence and making it possible to install one washbasin for each member.
