miriam barrio’s first challenge was to transform an old gloomy floor into a bright house in barcelona. the variation of distribution and the new orientation of the common areas that now cross the entire floor, allows light to cross from one end to the other. the non-occupied spaces such as the circulation areas and halls flow through the house invading each corner with light.

throughout the entire floor, barcelona-based designer miriam barrio plays with golden details on elements such as lamps, furniture and decoration. these details provide a luxurious touch that combines perfectly with the use of intense and unusual colors, which have been applied in a very resounding way in bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.

in the case of the night blue-colored kitchen, it interrupts and at the same time contrasts drastically with the classic styled, white-colored room. regarding the bedrooms and bathrooms, barrio has also continued to provide each room with its character and personality thanks to the bright colors, which coexist with the other black and gold elements and make the experience in this apartment unrepeatable.
