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?
