An attic completely transformed to become the set of a series of connected and multifunctional spaces. The family home is divided into open rooms designed to carry out all kinds of routine family activities: an open kitchen to share moments, a spacious and cozy living room, and a suite where you can rest quietly. All this with touches of contemporary design from iconic pieces that dress the spaces. The objective was clear: to open the spaces, generate more space, and, ultimately, create a sociable environment that encourages family life.
The first step consisted of removing partitions to join the dining room, living room, kitchen, and office areas to create a large common area that would meet the needs of the clients: cooking, spending time with the family, watching TV, reading. , doing homework … In this way, the intention was to create a set, but respecting the essence and entity of each room. This overall idea was achieved through the use of a common material: oak wood.
1. Wooden dining room
A slatted lattice leads to the space shared by the living room and dining room. In this area, oak wood is the material used to define small “cabins” to carry out different activities: work, rest, play the piano … Thus, the wall units and at the same time distributes.
In the words of the interior designer, “we have been able to work with a lot of wood because we had a fully glazed wall. The large window on the terrace has allowed us to balance weights”.
And, since the house is located on the sixth floor, the house enjoys a lot of natural light that enters from the terrace, decorated with Fermob furniture in beige and bluestone color.
The living room is also completed by a custom-made sofa, three coffee tables in different sizes and colors, and a chaise longue.
2. Dining area
Likewise, in the space, there are two cabinets: one closed to use as support (for serving utensils) and the other with an open shelf to store files and work documents.
3. Multifunctional kitchen
The kitchen can be considered the heart of the house, a space in which most of the family’s activities would take place, especially those of the youngest son.
That is why, within the room, a large seating area was created with an oval table so that the young son could play and paint on it.
Next to this, a large black wooden wardrobe with display cabinets becomes a storage area for both household items and accounts, consoles, toys, etc.
The rest of the kitchen has a U-shape and is fully integrated thanks to the use of black combined with white marble. All this, with small touches of wood that provide a feeling of warmth, and two lamps that come down from the ceiling in a pop style.
4. Suite to getaway
The large suite is conceived as an oasis for the couple. Large and elegantly decorated, it is a space that invites you to relax.
The walls are lined with linen, while the headboard, made to measure, has a wooden frame. Next to the bed rest bedside tables in the shape of iron boxes, providing a modern touch and contrasting with the warmth of the wood.
In front of the bed, the interior designer designed a large wardrobe with sliding doors that combine mirror and linen. The rest of the room is lacquered and framed in the same oak wood used in the living room.
5. Suite bathroom
Finally, and to complete the suite, the room’s own bathroom was completely renovated. The textured marble, ribbed type, and of the brand ‘Salvatori’ is the special element of the room.
Likewise, a closet with a lot of capacity is behind the mirror, completing a room where “everything is designed so that they have room to store their things and always remain clean”, creating an atmosphere of order and elegance.
