The original parquet floor, which was kept in the living room and in the bedrooms, was dressed with carpets. In the rest of the house, the Hydraulic tiles add authenticity with your geometric drawings. The kitchen undoubtedly deserves a special mention.

The combination of styles also characterizes the bathroom, where the current furniture contrasts with the hydraulic floor. In the children's bedroom a fresh image was achieved, in which the walls are the real protagonists with casual vinyl and a headboard reminiscent of hippies.
