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.

 

Decorating with antiques a modern apartment

After its renovation, this modern apartment should become the perfect backdrop for a decoration with antiques, as the owners had a collection of old paintings, sculptures and tapestries.

A mobile sculpture in iron, by José Onieva, leads to a second living area. In the foreground, a sofa with covers made with a Serendipity Fabrics linen. Behind, an antique chaise longue and a Belgian tapestry from the 17th century. In charge of this project has been María de la Osa.

The large windows are dressed with linen blinds that let the light through. The pair of identical sofas are from Blasco & Blasco. The flowerpots were acquired at an auction and the Persian carpet is a piece of family heritage.

Painting by Jordi Alcaraz acquired in Anmoder. The legacy armchair has been re-upholstered with an animal print fabric. Modern architecture enhances the decor with antiques as this two interesting Carlos III consoles.

Sophisticated but simple decoration

In one of the most representative streets of Barcelona’s Eixample we find this stately apartment, whose renovation was commissioned by Circular Studio.

The sophisticated but simple decoration reflects many of the wabisabi principles, like natural woods, few but chosen decorative elements, earth colors, natural fabrics… all combined with a great selection of iconic furniture and accessories from the 20th century design.

In the living room, a pair of Brigitte sofás from Blasco & Blasco, both with linen covers. Neutral tones dominate the decoration with touches in black. Alanda coffee table is a design by Paolo Piva. Carpets by Nani Marquina.

In this working área, also with a simple decoration but full of interest, highlights a BKF chair (or Butterfly chair). Throughout the house we can see a wonderfull collection of designer chairs.

In this angle of the living room, we can see the care taken in the selection of lamps. On the wall two lamps 265 designed by Paolo Rizzatto for Flos. On the sides of the sofa, Cesta lamp on the table and TMM floor lamp, both by Miguel Milá, edited by Santa & Cole.

In the living room, another icon of modern design. Lounge Chair with matching Ottoman, a creation of Charles and Ray Eames in the 50’s, manufactured by Vitra.
