The professional look of the interior designers Arianna Barral and Joaquín Vázquez He discovered the possibilities of this apartment located in the center of A Coruña. The house, 35 years old, was in a state of deterioration that demanded its integral rehabilitation. ECS Reformas and Interior Design specialists demolished partitions, chopped walls and ceilings, lifted the floor and removed the original plumbing and electricity installations.
The new distribution, with open spaces or communicated with each other through doors with glass panels, It resulted in a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and two bedrooms. The objective of the interior designers was to create environments that evoke the New York lofts bohemian style. To do this, they played with two elements: industrial materials and furniture retro air.
Thus, the walls were coated with white painted bricks and the floor, with a solid oak flooring - except in the kitchen, where a functional resin was installed, and in the bathroom, which was paved with marble. The carpentry joined the project with doors king size and a design inspired by the models of the early twentieth century. As for the furniture, original from the 50s and 60s, they add authenticity to a vintage decoration that convinces.
The living area was furnished with two modules upholstered in white leather that allow multiple combinations: online, they form a large sofa; if placed in L, there is a sofa with chaise longue, and separately, as they appear on these lines, they facilitate the gathering.

The furniture, mostly original pieces from the 50s and 60s - like the popular bookstore - give the decoration an evocative nostalgic air that humanizes it and makes it even more personal.

The living area and the dining room follow one another in the same space. Only the pillars, which remember where there was a wall before the reform, mark a subtle border between the two environments. The absence of doors, brick walls and even winks such as suspended light bulbs made of steel cables, the spotlight lamp or louver blinds, enhance the industrial air of the New York loft.

- The white color is a safe resource because of its great reflective capacity. Hence it is present in the kitchen, in the bricks seen from the walls and in the passage doors. We also see it in the blinds of slats and, even, in the most bulky furniture, such as the seating in the living area or the bed.
- When the light flows without anything stopping it, the house gains clarity. If you have interior rooms, you may be interested in suppressing partitions to get a more open house. Another option is the doors with glass quarters: although they separate, they leave the light free passage.
