An old, closed and oppressive apartment has recently been converted by a young couple with two children, into a bright and cosy apartment.
The living area has become a bright open space with large windows containing, almost without interruption, the kitchen, dining room, living room and study – giving a sense of continuity to the spaces; the dark wooden floors throughout the apartment provide visual continuity.
The grey Modulnova kitchen is very practical, and the greys and browns of the kitchen continue into the living room. This area, however, has a touch of colour from the multicoloured coffee table standing in front of the fireplace, and the warm colours of the TV cabinet. A rug with leather pillows on the floor breaks up the rigid geometries, giving an almost exotic feel to the room. The study has the same design and tones as the kitchen, and offers us a chance to relax in a chaise longue by Le Corbusier.
A NOTE TO THE CURIOUS:
Some walls pay homage to the artist Banksy, confirming once again that his is not just street art, but an all-encompassing form of expression full of meaning. Next to the crystal dining table, is a pvc print of ‘The Girl with the red balloon’, which first appeared on Blackfriars Bridge in London and is now a symbol of hope and peace. In the kitchen, however, in addition to the mouse, there is a three part print of “Life is beautiful”, from West Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
