Today’s Barcelona apartment draws its inspiration from the past with vintage furniture and the owner’s love of the old. With a few quirky twists and vibrant shades, it remains comfy and stylish – and true to owner Renier Guerra, a Cuban businessman who moved to Spain over 20 years ago.
This interesting abode is filled with furniture from bygone eras – a 70’s glass table is paired with a modular black leather sofa and vintage lighting in the living room. A quirky rear-view mirror adds appeal on the wall overhead, adjacent to an illustration by a New York artist.
The floors throughout this home are original and offer a vibrancy of vintage pattern and colour to this abode. High ceilings add depth to each space. Some of the ceilings boast original frescoes from the 19th century, beautifully restored to its former glory.
Each room draws us in with the different nick-nacks and vintage choice of decor. Even the bathroom takes on a vintage look with aged globe lighting and a bookshelf of an infirmary with photography and art on the walls.
The bedroom takes on a more dramatic tone with bold black and white prints that dominate here. From the Art Deco headboard through to the linen, the monochromatic tones are eye-catching and the patterns provide much appeal in this space. We also love the angular shape and tone of the floor lamp next to the bed.
Overall, beautiful high ornate ceilings and large windows create an illusion of space and flow in this home. We love the quirky use of vintage pieces and interesting finds that can be found scattered throughout. A mix of textures in the living room adds depth and a softness to this space and we love that exterior doors connects this space with the outside.
This home certainly packs a punch with personality and vintage style.
