Interior design of an apartment of 70 square meters – expanding the space with Anna and Eugeni Bach, in Gran Via, Spain

Incredible interior design of an apartment of 70 square meters

Creating the interior of an apartment of 70 square meters is quite a difficult task. Anna and Eugeni Bach have proposed an incredible expansion project in Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain.

Anna and Eugeni Bach:

“The project included a complete reconstruction of an apartment in the Eixample – Barcelona area, located in a brick building of the early twentieth century.

Initially, there were two rooms in the building with a view of the facade, the rest were illuminated and ventilated through a wide courtyard. This arrangement gave rise to a number of corridors and dark spaces that did not perform any functions other than connecting.

The new location was due to the desire of customers to arrange two bedrooms with a view of the facade, and the kitchen, dining room, living room and space exploration room will be organized in the rest of the house. Too many functions were assigned to such a short wall with windows to the courtyard.

We decided to keep two bedrooms and create an open space that will perform all these functions. The generous height of the house allowed us to develop a separate kitchen. As if we had constructed a piece of furniture. And on top of it, an attic was formed, which can be used as a guest room or a room for work.

This solution has positive aspects, at least in that it allows you to use the exceptional height of the apartment. Frees up additional space. Frees up access to all other rooms. The detached kitchen, of a lower height, further emphasizes the idea of an open space.

The original small toilet is located in front of the entrance. The bathroom was placed opposite the master bedroom. And the use of exceptional height made it possible to raise the bathroom floor and create an additional storage area. Additional space is also achieved by placing the bathroom under the shower, combining both functions in one space.”

Industrial Interior Design for a 100 square mtrs house in Texas

Industrial interior design with wooden furniture

Our heroes bought a house in Texas (Austin) and decided that industrial interior design is what they need. They immediately started rebuilding: they expanded the kitchen, changed the porch and entrance area, and turned the garage into a large bedroom. What were they inspired by when creating the interior?

Danielle says that functionalism is important first of all in the house, so initially they tried not to add to the interior only decorative elemnts. The house was spacious in the 60s and had a number of advantages in this regard, for example, a vaulted ceiling in the living room. Therefore, our heroes sought to preserve the original atmosphere.

They also wanted the house to be as bright as possible. To do this, they decided to leave the walls white and only in some places added color or texture to them.

Choosing the interior, they were also guided by the rustic style and aesthetics of the ranch. But at the same time, there is modern furniture in the rooms. As a result, the house masterfully combines home comfort with a free layout and minimalism.

Danielle and Austin came up with almost the entire design themselves, but a couple of times they still had to turn to professionals. So, it was the designer who advised them to move the front door – this just increased the kitchen area. “After a few brainstorming sessions and cans of beer, laughing, we finally came to a common solution,” says Danielle.

Another designer told them which textures and materials to choose for finishing and where to buy them. In addition, they received several sketches.

The materials were planned to be natural and natural, they did not have to look as if they were polished. The floor was originally supposed to be concrete, but it no longer fit into the budget, so wood was chosen.

Stainless steel elements and lamps (also in the bathroom) made of oil-polished bronze were added to the kitchen.

As for the range – these are light warm shades and black. The same colors are used in textiles – towels, carpets, bedspreads with southwestern patterns.

In rooms with a light finish, a color appeared

Thus, our heroes shared their experience on how, without having too big a budget, you can achieve aesthetics and style.
