Catalan Farmhouse: (Images 1-3) - Our focus was to create a three bedroom house full of original materials and historic features, such as stone floors on the ground floor and antique oak boards upstairs. We utilised the property’s high ceilings to create large, airy rooms that bring the sweeping Spanish countryside views indoors. When it came to the decor, we took great care sourcing antique furniture from the UK and Spain, befitting of a historic European farmhouse. Bold, contemporary touches – such as chrome bathroom fittings and modern artwork – bring the look into the 21st century, creating an elegant marriage between antique charm and modern luxuries. Barcelona Apartment: (Images 4-6) - By changing the internal layout of the apartment, we were able to create a large, bright apartment with three bedrooms that suited the client’s needs perfectly. We increased the size of the master bedroom and designed a multi-purpose space for the owners, which included a bedroom, dressing room, lounge, yoga room and bathroom. Three small rooms that were wasted space were transformed into an airy open-plan kitchen that flows directly into the dining room. When choosing furniture, fixtures and decor, we sourced quality pieces from all over Europe. However, the overall appearance has a decidedly English flair. Each ensuite and the guest bathroom was decorated with Drummonds utilities, and all the artwork is from local Spanish artists in Madrid and Arco. The result is a bold and contemporary living space, full of drama and character.
