A renewal with a happy ending

A renewal with a happy ending

They had been renting for years, constantly searching for Murcia the flat that would make them fall in love to the point of buying it and making it one hundred percent theirs. That moment came when they crossed the door of this house of 90 square meters. The couple, a marriage composed of two professors of literature, knew from the outset that it would be the chosen place and decided to put it in the hands of the interior designer Ana García to make it a success. Their demands were that there were works by local artists and their friends in all the rooms, that it was a Nordic style, that would reflect their personality (the library in the lounge was a must) and that the new pieces would be integrated with those that they already had . A challenge with a fairly tight budget.

"It was an easy project, because they were advised from the beginning," he confesses. The owner wanted a round table in the dining room, surrounded by chairs Masters from Kartell, a piece that the interior designer loves and proposed in mustard color. While on the same page, it was not difficult to combine new pieces with the ones they brought from their old house ("the turntable was love at first sight," Ana explains) and with the finishes, such as doors and cabinets. The couple chose the works of art together with the interior designer, getting them to integrate perfectly into the project and, most importantly, that they were totally to their liking.

The result is an optimistic, serene and colorful house, with lots of light and places to read, well-communicated spaces and with character. "His friends enter the house and see his reflected personality and that, in the end, is the essence of a good decoration. Let those who live there feel at home," says Ana. A happy ending.

They come from the north

The owners wanted their house to be a Nordic style and to reflect their personality. Also that the new furniture fit with what they already had. A challenge.

Great authors

The owner wanted a round white table in the dining room with the chairs Masters from Starck to Kartell. The interior designer chose a table of Ikea and the chairs in mustard color.

Heat of home

"The interior of the wooden lamp, the eucalyptus, and the branches of natural cotton, provide the touch of warmth and color that the dining area needs, fitting perfectly with the fabulous chairs," explains Ana.

A lot of art

The works of the dining room are by Miriam Martínez Abellán.

Keep existing
