The Furnished Void

Do you dare to paint your walls in bright yellow? Rather than coat entire rooms with their favorite colors, this flat in the Eixample district of Barcelona features colorful splashes of deep colors over sections of the wall to express bold designs in increments. Maybe this renovation project will help you feel more confident with making bold color decisions!

This young couple and their four-year-old son wanted a place where the sun streamed in through the windows and they could enjoy their surroundings. Now they can display their art and book collection as well as having enough space for family time.

The kitchen area was in need of modernization. One of the specifications from the family was that they wanted an open bright space, and the previous kitchen was the complete antithesis of this!

Bringing down the walls has made the space less cramped, and the brown tiles have gone! In their place are white walls, refined light fittings, and subway tiles outlining the backsplash area above the work surfaces.

It’s a complete change around from before. The cabinets run from top to bottom along one of the walls, cupboards are unobtrusive and shelves are mounted to display the more colorful kitchenware pieces.

 

The yellow paint on the wall covers different surfaces to create an attractive shape that draws you in to look at the room. It’s a playful arrangement that pushes against the idea that modern means a sea of white, and doesn’t overbear or interfere with the overall flow of the room.

From hob to table in seconds, the family is now able to cook and eat together as the room is open plan. Natural oak wood was used for the flooring, which is a resistant material for family life.

Only a slim peek at the bathroom, but I like the tiles! The passageway throughout the house is easy to navigate, and the blue and yellow color themes are nicely arranged.

I love this space. The collection of furniture is a medley of different shapes and sizes, but they bring you in and definitely encourage a laid back feel. There is enough space for family activities and solo projects. Take a look also at the vaulted ceilings typical of Catalonian buildings; the beam is exposed from where a wall has come down, but now the pattern of the brickwork is visible.

It was important to the couple to make a playful space for their four-year-old son Joaquim. While there is enough personality and medley of comforts, there is also space as the family grows up.

What a transformation! The tile has been replaced with floorboards for a softer look, and they extend through to the other part of the room to keep it flowing. The wooden panels around the archway have been removed and given a facelift.

 

What’s really great to see is the way color works in the background, or adds a splash of fun. The beam of sunlight that comes through from the window seem to have left an imprint on the wall! The open doorway leads through from the living room area to the study.

The bedroom has another fun pop of color, with this lovely green. The featured accent shapes are a great idea if you don’t want to commit to a full wall, but they have a lot of character so they still pack a punch.

Which is your favorite room from The Furnished Void? Are you tempted to throw shapes of color at the walls? The painted wall segments feel like a great way to meet in the middle when you’re choosing to go for big bold colors or a minimal brightened white space.

 

It’s always fun to see the before and after photos of a renovation, get in touch if you have your own photos you want to share!
