Loft interior design for an urban and cosmopolitan life in the center of Madrid
Madrid, May 8th, 2018 – An open-plan space, for a contemporary and urban lifestyle. That’s the designing and decorating purpose design by architect and interior designer Nayra Iglesias to this loft located in the center of Madrid.
“From the beginning, the idea “, explains Iglesias, “has been created a current design apartment that would be as functional, cozy and sophisticated as possible, and achieve an aesthetic full of different textures and contrasts”. This is how they opted for material as brick, stoneware, brass, wood, and vinyl flooring, in this almost 120ms loft with”U-shape” plan.
We get, instead of out of tune, a harmony and a balance of materials, in a vibrant and delicate atmosphere, that has been finished off with an eclectic decoration combining design furniture, some vintage pieces and other industrial-look elements, that add value in a predominantly feminine and chic environment, the same as the studio’s recognized and characterized style.
The apartment is distributed, basically, in four main rooms: kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. All of them are open and connected with each other, because of the lack of interior walls, that generates the possibility of turning around a patio full of plants which – as an oasis lost in the middle of the city – brings a green and natural touch. The 20m2 kitchen offers the main access and the first look at the house.
The principal elements of this places have been designed in parallel with a large central island as the protagonist of the space, and behind which has been installed a wide floor-to-ceiling paneling storage module. Its white and contemporary finish stands out with the Triangle Grey flooring by Gerflor, which personalizes the area with its imitation micro-cement finish, waterproof material that prevents the passage of liquid substances, ideal for this kitchen area.
This space is completed with few elements, which give it a different character. It is achieved with Mid Century style stools with lacquered steel tubular structure and leather seats, accompanied by a beautiful golden table lamp, and a couple of rattan mirrors.
The spacious living-dining room, almost 60m2, is adjacent to the kitchen and it’s opened to the center of the loft as the main heart home. It has got two different areas. In one hand, the dining room with an immense central table where to socialize and receive family and friends, and on the other, the living area, where to relax in a more intimate and informal way. The dining room is formed by a custom-made table with an industrial touch design by Nayra Iglesias surrounded by eight different chairs that mixed oriental and glamorous style creating a unique and extremely feminine combination.
The living area is the more industrial style space of the loft, in which the interior designer and her team have introduced, nevertheless, a chromatic palette based on the color pink, blue and mustard with glam fabrics as velvet.
“We’ve tried”, she adds, “to offer a more friendly and delicate side to the area through a composition of different elements, which vary both in shape and in aesthetics; an effect that we attempt to get with the 50´s style sofa and armchairs, or with the great feather ostrich lamp, as well as the metals mixture silver and gold, added in details and minor decorative elements, but which still evokes the most distinguished salons”.
This cozy living is presided by a wonderful buffet in a natural aged color of colonial style made of recycled pine wood.
Throughout the loft, the finishing of the walls, with the exception of the toilets, are old brick walls that have been saved, their natural color has been maintained by varnish treatment, which also allows good maintenance.
These living walls are decorated with oriental style shelves and restored antique furniture like the wood cabinet, a wonderful jewel in mahogany color with brass handles and worktop upholstered in synthetic gold fabric with textured waves.
Large lighting with rails in factory style, as well as a big mirror, cared in dark wood and rococo style, complete the decoration of this room, before arriving at the end of the home, where is the private bedroom with the suite bathroom.
In this night area, the interior design and decoration work, done by In Out Studio, acquires its most creative and daring point. The color green and pink are incorporated successfully through the mixture of patterns fabric with which one of its main faces has been covered, as well as the textures that have been incorporated through the curtains and cushions of the new collection La Garçonnière de Avellaneda, Salvador print, by Güell Lamadrid.
In front of the bed, a cozy reading corner is created, composed by a delicate Mid Century armchair accompanied by an exquisite table lamp.
A large oil painting presides over the room making a large headboard and balancing the strong appearance of the brick from the other wall. The lighting is in the hands of a large and imposing piece suspended in Art Deco style, and at the sides, there are feminine artisan glass lamps. For the flooring, the Sunny White model of the collection Senso Clic Premium by Gerflor with white oak parquet finish, which adds warmth and serenity to the set.
The home ends, at the opposite os the entrance area, with a bathroom where you can access directly from the bedroom. Here it is betting to combine elements that grant an ethnic character with a lot of personalities. This is achieved thanks to a series of unique decoration pieces, such as the old Arab coffee grinder made of solid wood and a deep blue velvet curtains.
This is how a house with industrial architecture is discovered, with a sophisticated and feminine interior design for an urban and cosmopolitan life in the center of Madrid.
