These houses have aged with the class of fine wine. Because of them, we love everything. Its soaring ceilings decorated with moldings and rose windows, its thick stone walls, its handmade hydraulic mosaic floors.
1. FROM OLD TOWN CINEMA TO MODERN AND SUPER PERSONAL HOME
This house from the s. XIX has lived many lives: it has been a cinema, carpentry, and a dance hall. And now, the Dadà Interiors team has turned it into a home that is as personal as it is full of charm, thanks to the studied balance between the original elements, such as the wooden beams or the stone walls, and the modern ones, such as the concrete floor. , iron details, and modern furniture.
2. A STATELY APARTMENT THAT BOASTS HISTORY
The history of this central Madrid apartment is obvious. And the fact is that with the reform, carried out by the Aldescubierto studio, it was not only sought to preserve the original elements of this century-ancient house, but to enhance them. Now they have become a very charming hallmark, like the exposed beams throughout the house or the original wooden columns, which recall the original layout of the floor.
3. A VERY MODERN STATELY LOFT
This loft has a stately skeleton, since the original house treasures more than a century of history, and a modern suit, as well demonstrated by its kitchen, which the decorator Lara Pujol designed as one more piece of furniture in the living room. With the reform, Lara kept everything she could, such as the large balcony windows or the spectacular coffered ceiling.
4. A WALL THAT HOLDS SEVERAL LIVES FRAMES THE LIVING ROOM
The living room was equipped with few pieces but with a great personality, such as the maxi modular sofa – the owner is a movie fan – or the iron fireplace. And it is that the protagonism in the living room falls on the wall, which reveals the different layers of previous paintings.
5. SWEET DREAMS IN THE OLD HAYSTACK
If the main floor was the stables, the upper floor was the ancient barn, which now houses the bedrooms. The stone walls have been left untreated but here they have been painted white, creating a picture so peaceful that it is a haven of peace.
Who would say that this apartment has more than 125 years of history? Its owner knew how to rescue and highlight its original architectural elements and covered them with modern and personal touches.
The interior designer opted for a chromatic base in three tones for the interiors of the house: white, blue, and gray. “Fresh colors linked to the sea”. And it reinforced its fresh character with a careful choice of materials: noble woods, linen, hemp, and natural textures.
The history of this house begins with the grandfather of its owner, a century ago. Now, after rehabilitation of more than two years, it proudly exhibits original elements of that time and others of rabid actuality.
Of this house, only three walls remained standing. But its current owner knew how to see the possibilities offered by its exceptional location and rebuilt stone by stone what was left of an ancient country house from the s. XVII giving life to a dream of youth, when he fell in love with this unique place on the Asturian coast.
The 80 cm thick of the original walls were respected, large windows were opened to flood the house with light and enjoy the views and the ceiling beams were left in view, although they were painted white to give greater space and light.
