An Elegant and Healthy House

This house has many qualities. Some are obvious, such as its luminosity or its sophisticated decoration. But others qualities need to be told. For example, the house has been completely redistributed (even the kitchen has been moved) in order to achieve the continuity of all the spaces and allow the light to flow from one side of the house to the other.

There is another aspect that perhaps is not appreciated at first glance but defines the new spirit of the house: this is a healthy home. For the renovation only sustainable and chemical-free materials were used, such as the mineral painting of the walls.

The living and the dining areas share this space. The white walls and curtains and the large glass panels multiply the light in this room. In contrast, tapestries, works of art and brightly colored accessories, such as the carpet or the blue velvet sofa.  The background artwork is the work of Lorena del Pozo, architect responsible for the renovation and interior design of this house.

The shelf is custom-made. Artwork by Lorena del Pozo.

In the dining room, chairs designed by Willy Rizzo in the 1970s. The table is illuminated with an iron lamp by Rokc. The wall sconces come from Rue Vintage 74.

According to the philosophy of “healthy house”, in the bedroom the beddings are made of linen. The floor, also in bathrooms and kitchen, is natural oak flooring.

Gray living room with touches of red

A gray living room is an option that have won devoted fans for the versatility of this color. Interior designer Marisa González Llanos opted for a gray living room with convenient touches of red in this house in the exclusive area La Finca in Pozuelo, a town near Madrid.

The symmetry in this corner is like a mirror. Liberty chaise longues are by Blasco & Blasco. They were made by special order eliminating one arm to each one to multiply the symmetrical effect.

In the dining area a metal round table is accompanied by six dining chairs, model Triestre by Blasco & Blasco upholstered with a gray velvet from the same brand. The large chandelier has been hung taking advantage of the double height of the ceiling in this area.

The L-shaped living room has allowed to create three differentiated areas: dining, reading and living zone.

Fresh Decor for the whole year

This living room shows a fresh decor that works perfectly throughout the year, from spring to winter. Behind the project: Victoria and Sylvia Melián, two sisters, master interior designers, who have been working together since 2006 under the label Melián Randolph.

As in all their projects, in this living room they have shown great personality, audacity and a unique chic touch. The result is a fresh decor based on the sum of different elements. This gorgeous mix is fruit of a laborious previous project and a special talent to harmonize all the elements.

A large rug anchors the living area which features two Kennedy sofas by Blasco & Blasco, with green velvet cushions. The area is completed with two steel poufs, designed by Sylvia Melián. and two garden chairs of the 50s found in Youtopia.

fresh decorIn the living room there are many vegetable motifs that contribute to a fresh decoration: photographs, green moss velvet, natural flowers, antique garden chairs and, especially, the great oil painting by Patricio Cabrera. 

A Liberty chaise longue by Blasco & Blasco has been placed between the living and the dining area. The back wall has been highlighted with an anthracite gray color. The touches of green energize the black and white scheme. The dining chairs are from Miss in Demeure.

This living room appeared on the cover of Nuevo Estilo Magazine in 2012, but its fresh decor continues to be trendy.
