Its abundant brightness and the possibility of a tailor-made reform were sufficient reasons for this house to dazzle its owners; Upon seeing her they knew that she had many possibilities. They did not care about the painful state in which they were, because the house had been closed for many years, and since its construction had not been renovated. The current owner, Rut Chicote, would be in charge of both the reform and its subsequent decoration; two questions that were not going to be complicated, since he would only have to express his experience as an interior designer.
KEYS OF THE REFORM
Optimizing the space, eliminating partitions, gaining light and redistributing the environments were the objectives set out in the work.The room was expanded by incorporating the adjoining room and, thanks to a new window, also enjoys greater brightness. The new kitchen is a space open to the large common area, which receives the light coming from the main facade. To do this, we had to give up a bathroom and part of the hall. In addition, to have more spacious and comfortable rooms, the hallway and hallway were dispensed with. In bedrooms and bathrooms, sliding doors from floor to ceiling were installed to create a greater sense of height. Thus, in addition to getting the light to circulate freely, the surface was maximized and a feeling of undeniable amplitude was achieved. The original floor was replaced by an elm platform, which brings the warm note to the whole house.
Once a better organization of the available meters was achieved, the furniture was necessary to make this floor a comfortable place to live. The interior designer combined design pieces with her own creations to recreate a modern and personal aesthetic, very careful. Rut Chicote not only printed her stamp on much of the furniture - like the living room and dining room tables, which are her designs - but also on recycled and recovered objects herself.
The living room was designed as a multifunctional space for the whole family. In addition to being and dining room, this large common area includes a work area and a reading corner. The coffee table, made of okume wood, is a design by Rut Chicote Interiorismo. Chair, with upholstery from La Tapicera.
The cushions are from H&M Home and Maisons du Monde.
