A house between sun and shadow

A house between sun and shadow

The interior designer Alicia Sánchez Moreno, from the Mill-House studio, performed the reform of this house, owned by a cosmopolitan woman who wanted a current house but, at the same time, wanted to keep all her Family inheritance furniture. With Alicia's project everything was possible, since it changed completely with a new distribution, which achieves an almost diaphanous space on the first floor, and reserve the ground floor for a bedroom that connects to an outdoor lounge and pool. On the first floor, the stairs mark the spatial division: on one side there is the living-dining room and on the other, the kitchen-office, although both seem a single environment due to the breadth of the passage area that communicates them.

In the living room, an original element of the house, the fireplace, is also key to the distribution of the environments. Its stately mouth and gray painted partition offer an elegant aesthetic, ideal for the dining room. Its rear face is another home around which a seating area is created. In it you enjoy an extraordinary luminosity and of the vision of the exterior thanks to the succession of new enclosures in its facade. With the reform the house also opens pavements.

A different flooring was chosen for the kitchen; It is a stuccoed and continuous surface, full of nuances, which arouses maximum interest and enhances the black granite countertop and oak furniture.

That same handmade finish creates an endless chiaroscuro in the bedroom, which envelops the atmosphere in a serenity halo. To stand out in interior design, the role of white and simplicity without artifice. A plus, the warm and homely air created with the bookstore, which acts as a headboard, and the corner with a retro desk. Next to the latter, access to the porch, converted into an outdoor lounge.

- Spectacular, the tap with removable shower and the purity of the black granite countertop South Africa, which harmonizes with the windows.
