The aim of Paco Ruiz-Nicoliet’s renovation was to create pleasant environments, respecting the original features of the historic building. The building has retained all the charm and authenticity, thanks to the preservation of the original architectural elements and the inclusion of new elements perfectly integrated. This is how we find aged wooden beams combined with metal pipes left exposed.
The architectural design was based on a practical and functional distribution. Without a doubt, one of the best results has been to increase the brightness and the sensation of amplitude. The union of environments has played a decisive role.
The, for example, is separated from the living area only by a glass wall with a large sliding door, which allows for its independence and privacy (thanks to a curtain) while allowing light to pass at the same time. We have already seen in other homes, how the glass walls make the space unique, without interruptions.
Both the floors and the doors, which the shutters (used as doors) have all been recovered from other historic buildings. These elements share the charm and beauty of naturally aged wood from time.
To copy this style, the first thing to do is to hunt for furnishings and accessories from different eras to give new life.
The furniture includes, in fact, numerous vintage pieces, such as the table of the early twentieth century recovered to create the peninsula in the kitchen, the dining room chairs or the ceiling lamps. These elements are accompanied by contemporary furnishings, such as functional kitchen and bathroom furniture, but also large colorful and modern photographs.
The use of textiles and traditional ceramics contributes to creating the right atmosphere, warm and welcoming.
Finally, the color is wisely blended with lights and textures in the environment, creating contrasts and chromatic games typical of the Boho Chic trend.
Try it yourself mixing styles and colors: instilling personality in your rooms will be easier than you think.
