The interior designer Jaime Beriestain has redesigned in Barcelona elegant and modern home with the symmetrical grace of Haussmann’s Paris creating every corner of this house with a good selection of art pieces and precious materials.
The owners are a young couple that wanted to recreate the Haussmannian aesthetic of the noblest Paris in their apartment. To realize the client’s desire the designer decided to completely change the original distribution of this house of a building of the 80s.
“We wanted to play with the symmetry creating axes that would give space nobility,” explains Beriestain.
From the entrance, a central corridor spreads the entire house. The idea was to take advantage of the passage areas giving them importance thanks to a multitude of works of modern art. “Everything is thought to the millimeter. We even choose the floor slab to slab, looking for the best veins and colors, “he continues.
In the modern living room, color was the key element. A large gray carpet joins the two areas around which modern furniture is arranged, most made to measure in different shades of the same range.
In the dining room decor, you’ll find the classic design of Warren Platner chairs for Knoll and the dining table that Beriestain himself has designed.
Spread through the house pieces of art add the contemporary design that the clients wanted, from photography to sculpture, through drawings or engravings of young artists such as Yago Hortal, Peter Halley, Martin Chirino, Andy Warhol or Keith Haring.
” There is no corner that has not been projected. The result is timeless, refined and warm. It could be in any European capital, “he says.
