Unifying functionality and design is not an easy task, although after seeing the final result of this “and a half” house it seems to sew and sing. The owners decided to buy the house next door and keep a part, to join it with theirs, and put the rest on sale. For the reform and the choice of furniture they had the help of the interior design studio Meredith Interiors. The priority objective of the project was to balance the distribution of spaces, since they were totally decompensated.

With this it was possible to integrate differentiated areas, such as the bedroom, the office and the living room, while the kitchen and the hall served as a link to the whole. As for the furniture, minimalist pieces were chosen that perfectly combine practicality and aesthetics. The shades range from the broken white of the walls or the metallic gray of the floor, to the metallic mink of the dining room and the bookcase. The decoration as a whole is eclectic and, although it tends to mix styles, the final result is contemporary and refined. Next to the furniture, aesthetic elements of great impact stand out: it is the case of the paintings of the living room and the kitchen, of the red door that receives us in the hall or of the striking lamps. But what interior designer Javier Meredith is particularly proud of in this reform is lighting, certainly an important chapter in the final result of this house.

Natural light, which enters from different angles, mixes wisely with artificial lighting. This reaches the rooms either through direct elements, represented by floor, table or ceiling lamps, or by ambient lights, such as LED beacons strategically placed throughout the house. In this way, it is possible to pass without stridency of the dim light at maximum intensity. In short, an intelligent reform with personalized, versatile, regular spaces, without dead angles, which result in a warm and serene home, equipped with technical resources of audio, television and home automation. All this designed to make everyday life much more pleasant.

The division of environments in the living room - living room and dining room - has facilitated the visual integration of the spaces.

Gathering atmosphere in the lounge

Transformed into a comfortable meeting space, the lounge invites you to have long conversations on the sofa or in the comfortable vintage armchairs.

The dinner room

It is chaired by a table with original miter-shaped legs. A very current trend, which we also see in this house, is to locate a work library next to the dining room. The one in the image, in the corner, has sliding glass panels to acid, which allow to show or hide part of it. Baltus table and bookstore; both, distributed by the Meredith Interiors study. Chairs, from El Ocho.

Dining room open to the bedroom

Both focal points were placed on the ceiling and on the floor; This is the original lamp and the impressive carpet that covers this area with roses. In the background I saw the bedroom, which has a work area. The rug with relief brings richness and texture to a room where the simplicity of lines is predominant.

Kitchen in white and red

The intense color of the lamp, of the door that communicates with the hall and of some accessories stands out over the unpolished white that reigns in the kitchen. A mosaic-shaped mirror and a reproduction of a work by Keith Haring animate the walls and break their uniformity. Red lamp, from Ikea; mirror, of Anmoder and ancient siphons, of El Ocho. FLAT>

The work area and the bathroom have been integrated into the bedroom

Travel to the bathroom is minimized thanks to its integration into the bedroom.
