The Project



In Sant Pere de Ribes, a picturesque town in Penedés surrounded by vineyards and forests, adjacent to Sitges, stands this beautiful residential property of 200 sqm that captivates with its location overlooking the Garraf Natural Park and its ‘70s architecture. My client, who was trained in London as a communications professional, felt deeply connected to her belongings but still needed an interior change to feel comfortable in her home again. Thus, during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, she commissioned me to work on a living room and entrance decoration project. The result was so satisfying that shortly after, she entrusted my studio with a comprehensive renovation of the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms.

We worked closely with the client, undertaking a comprehensive interior design project to turn this residence into a charming home where living truly became a delight for the senses. Respecting the client's tastes and preferences for glass surfaces, marble, and soft tones, we provided this space with functionality, life, and elegance.

The original entrance featured an antique staircase with dark wood balusters, creating a very dim entryway. The transformation was radical when the client requested the old railings to be replaced with glass railings and stainless steel handrails. This space experienced a significant transformation, gaining visual spaciousness and brightness. The original kitchen consisted on rustic cabinets that had been repainted and a granite worktop, an outdated and not very functional kitchen. A humble start for a kitchen that would one day accommodate a carefully selected collection of glass pieces and inherited pottery. In a short period of time, thanks to the refined taste of the owner and the trust placed in my interior design studio, as well as the technical support of the carefully selected team, the outdated and impractical kitchen was transformed into one of the most unique spaces in the house. We call this kitchen project "The Fifty Shades of Grey," a masterpiece of the house, owing to the use of materials in different shades of grey: Carrara marble worktop and backsplash with its dynamic and beautiful veins that turn this kitchen into a piece of art. Pearl kitchen cabinets, Carrara marble, aluminium and stainless steel are elements that coexist and enhance each other in this space. In the living room, we revamped the fireplace while maintaining the open-fire concept. We designed streamlined marble mouldings, a simple yet elegant approach. A shelf behind the sofa gave more depth to the living room area and highlighted the classic sofa, brought from London, while showcasing vases and small artworks. On its left, we designed a shelving unit with a floating system, where the owner collects architecture, travel, and wine tourism books, among others. In the master bedroom, a partition wall separated the bedroom from the bathroom. Through its opening, we created a visual connection between both spaces. We made changes in the layout, gained comfort, and allowed views of the moon from the bed. Swinging doors were replaced by sliding ones, improving circulation, and special attention was paid to lighten spaces (glass bedside tables) and add warmth through lighting fixtures. The client's favourite white and grey tones were perfect to evoke a serene atmosphere. Within the monochrome palette, tactile materials and finishes such as blown glass, marble, ceramics, and artworks enhance visual interest.
