This duplex, which could be in a remote place, ideal to escape on vacation, is located in a colony of single-family houses, in a central neighborhood of the capital. Well distributed, with a space that brings together living room-dining room-kitchen and a cozy patio on the ground floor, and with a bedroom with bathroom on the upper floor, it is warm, homely and surprises with its simple charm. Its owner was put in the hands of the Teklassic team, a well-known Madrid decoration firm, for the acquisition of furniture and accessories. She liked the store because whenever she had gone they had been well advised and provided with ideas, which made her think that, without a doubt, she was among professionals.

The combination of retro and vintage furniture It has a lot to do, but also the surprise upholsteries, such as the kimlim that customizes the classic bench, used as a coffee table in the living area, or the checkered pillows of the purple sofa. Not forgetting that in the bedroom, the bed is dressed with a patchwork quilt, made in Scotland, with wool tartan scraps, in blue and red. The soil chosen by the owner also contributes to the feeling of warmth on both floors: a laminate that mimics natural wood. He thought it was the best option to give the house a home air and, as it is resistant and easy to maintain, he knew that, in addition, it would work well in the kitchen and in the living area, which suffers frequent entrances and exits to the patio. Once installed, it provides a visual continuity that makes the house seem more spacious. Another success was to choose a kitchen that harmonizes with the furniture in the dining room and living room.
In the upper floor, attic, The distribution of the space is optimal: rest area and bathroom each have a roof window that provides natural light and ventilation. In the first, the two disparate bedside tables and the vibrant chromatic paintings make up a unique, special atmosphere. In the second, the marble and green resin floor has an unusual relevance due to its uniqueness and contrast with the dominant white.
