A 50 m² house with stunning views

A 50 m² house with stunning views

Sometimes, a change in lifestyle requires a different decoration that breaks with the past and adapts to new circumstances. That, exactly, is what happened with the owner of this house. Just separated, I was looking for a home that looked nothing like the family. The floor of 50 m2 plus about 25 m2 of terraceIt was enough for a single. The ubication, at the foot of Tibidabo, with spectacular views of Barcelona And with the Mediterranean Sea in the background, it was excellent. As for the decoration, I was looking for a house practice, comfortable, with the necessary elements to live comfortably, but without luxuries, to remind you of the lifestyle of times gone by.

The interior designer Mónica Pla took care of the reform and decoration. The distribution was maintained, with a large living room-communicated with the kitchen through a passport-, a bedroom and a bathroom. However, the original floor was changed to parquet, a material that invites you to walk barefoot. The walls were painted white, but the interior designer winked at the sea, the owner's great passion, and coated the exterior walls of the kitchen in a blue that evokes the Mediterranean. As for furniture, wood became the star material of the pieces, most of them designed by Monica.

The terrace, located on the floor, is one of the greatest charms of the house. Spacious, allowed to create different environments to enjoy it at any time of the day. A bar in the shade - ideal for preparing barbecues - a living area worthy of a lounge, the dining room for six people and a coffee corner follow each other along its surface. The original sofa that Monica Pla designed with a large seat is striking; a cushion in the form of a roller located in the center, and used as a backrest, defines its double use: as a sofa in the living area and as a bench in the outdoor dining room. One more sample of the ingenuity and functionality that characterize the decoration of this original home

Kitchen with walls that do not reach the ceiling

The kitchen walls did not extend to the ceiling; they were left at a distance so that the interior had an extra entrance of natural light. In this way, the kitchen is located inside a cube whose volume becomes a striking architectural element that breaks the uniformity of the house.The wooden stools are from Little House

Hallway with wooden shelves

Books, records and CDs occupy an unusual place: the hall. The interior designer Mónica Pla designed two shelves with shelves made of wood from scaffolding. The collections at the entrance anticipate the originality of the decoration that characterizes the rest of the house and divert to the hall a warehouse space that is usually allocated to the living area.

Bedside table and lamp

The staircase to one side and the original combination of bedside table and floor lamp to another is a good example of the trend proposed to decorate the bedroom with different pieces on both sides of the bed.
