When is going to perform a Integral reform It is important to know what the needs and priorities of the owners are, and the owner of this house was very clear: he wanted a wide and comfortable common stay. To achieve this, he relied on the interior design studio of María Santos who, together with the architect Cristina Miguelena, designed their new house. To do this, the first thing they did was to rethink the original distribution.
They went from a very compartmentalized apartment, with small rooms, to a large open space which includes living area, dining room and kitchen; two bedrooms and three bathrooms -one for each bedroom and another for guests-. In this new organization, the integration of the two terraces inside the house: one towards the living room, to have more relaxed environments, and another towards the main bedroom, where it was used as a dressing room.
The renovation works were also used to renovate installations and coatings, where a uniformity of materials and finishes was chosen to create a sense of continuity and visual amplitude. The floor was chosen as a platform, and the walls and carpentry were painted in two different shades of gray. In the hall and the living room, we chose to give prominence to the wood, present not only on some fronts, but also on the shelf that separates the dining room from the hallway that leads to the rooms.
This chromatic uniformity furniture and textiles joined. Nordic style pieces were combined with designs of industrial air in the same materials - wood, fiber and iron - and upholstery and fabrics were chosen in neutral tones. On this canvas, accessories were added in cauldron, yellow and black, which add dynamism and give a seductive masculine point to the decoration.
IDEAS FOR DIVIDING ENVIRONMENTS
The glazed structures They are the best solution to make two spaces independent without losing light or visual amplitude, besides not limiting the perspective. The options are varied: structures with frames, satin glass, smooth and transparent glass partitions, etc.
The sliding doors They are a perfect resource to separate two environments that connect frequently. In order not to lose useful space, ideally, the sheets are embedded in the partition or in structures that replace the wall.

The wall of the hall was covered with wooden slats, matching the floor. The predominance of this material creates a cozy atmosphere as soon as you enter the house. It becomes, thus, the perfect prelude to a floor that, without walls that make the entrance independent, announces its breadth thanks to a diaphanous distribution and its windows.

The living area was decorated with two identical sofas arranged in an L shape. Being a design with a not very high backrest, one of them was placed under the window. In the center, two twin side tables were placed and, closing the atmosphere, a pair of seats, also the same.
