Catalan Farmhouse: (Images 1-3) – We focused on creating a three-bedroom house full of original materials and historic features, like the stone floors on the ground floor and antique oak boards upstairs. We emphasised the property’s high ceilings to create large, airy rooms that bring the sweeping Spanish countryside indoors. For the decor, we sourced antique furniture from the UK and Spain that befit 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 apartment’s internal layout, we were able to create a large, bright apartment with three bedrooms, which suited the client’s needs. We increased the master bedroom size and designed a multi-purpose space that includes a bedroom, dressing room, lounge, yoga room and bathroom. Three small rooms 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 across Europe. The overall appearance, however, has a decidedly English flair. We decorated each en-suite and the guest bathroom with Drummonds’ utilities and all the artwork is from Spanish artists in Madrid and Arco. The result is a bold, contemporary living space, full of drama and character.
