Discover a home dedicated entirely to…wood. A tribute to this precious material that completes the look of a house and has the power to change it completely. Wood is an inspiration and we like wood: the simplicity, the gorgeous decorations, the solid structure. Wood is the natural touch embracing our homes. This apartment located in the Old Town of La Coruña, Spain embraces this particular material and emphasises the sobriety of classic design, somehow reflecting the historic legacy of the town. The apartment was decorated by Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos.
Neat, rich and gorgeous, for those simply adore wood, the apartment is an attempt to increase the liveable space and create the perfect breezy environment. The hallways replace the classic space delimitation. Somehow, the kitchen has a very interesting place in the house’s dynamic. As you sit in the living room, you look at the big block of wood and you see through a transparent glass window, the kitchen’s décor. The architects explained: “The kitchen was moved and linked to the lounge where there was an inner room earlier. This allowed to obtain another bedroom in its place.” By combining the last line of design with classic accents, you confer quality to the house. This is exactly what the architects did. Do you like the result?
There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
