A playful Spanish living room with bold pops of color.

The humble white shell of a Spanish apartment was embellished with luxe finishes and materials in a palette that invokes the playful colors of gemstones. The owners of this apartment blended classic, natural, and chic retro styles in a fusion that balances simplicity and a colorful energy. Parquet floors made of salvaged oak and hints of brass, velvet, and fur shine against the simple white walls of the living room. The mustard sofa floats in the predominately white room, providing a focal point to the room. Although the room is so pale, a mix of textures and textiles add enough warmth to make it feel cozy and inviting, and contrast the sleek lines of the kitchen. Speaking of the kitchen, I’m head-over-heels for that incredible mirrored and marble island!

Despite the minimal approach to architecture in the living and dining rooms, wall moldings were added to the bedroom to bring a sense of history and interest to the space. I think the moldings work beautifully in the bedroom, what do you think?



  1. And all was good and beautiful, and all Kevin’s readers were incredible jealous of the space. The end.

  2. The wood is such a warm color, and the wall moldings make the room feel like a work of art! Also loving the firework-like decor on the wall in the first picture 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    • I usually like darker-colored wood, but I’m digging this warmer, honey-colored wood in smaller doses!

    • The headboard is so simple but has such beautiful fabric! I’m so in love with that kitchen as well…
