Today’s home tour brings us a good example of how to modernize a country house in a modern way, maintaining a relaxed and comfortable environment and a natural appearance. The perfect union between nature and simplicity!
We are in Spain, not far from Madrid, in the house that Carlos and Marisa have chosen as their home, to enjoy nature and relax in the open air away from the city bustle.
Owning a house in the country is the dream of so many people, but restructuring a house is a challenging task that requires clear ideas about what to do, where the support of a professional is therefore inevitable.
The technical and architectural recovery was conducted by the Ester Prat studio towards parameters of respect and ecology, using sustainable materials from the area. While respecting the original structure, Carlos and Marisa wanted a house open to the outside, so that they could enjoy the garden all year round. This is how we intervened with large windows in the living room and other elements capable of effectively combining modernity and tradition. Such as the micro cement floor, which was an obvious choice and of great effect. If you don’t know, the Microcemento brand mineral coatings give the possibility of uniformly coating any type of existing environment and covering with a single continuous surface. Unlike resins, mineral compounds are more preferred by designers due to their beauty, but above all according to their natural composition and technical characteristics. They are elegant but also long-lasting floors.
The style of the house (between country chic and minimal ) recalls simplicity and austerity, but in this case, it has been softened with details that communicate warmth and intimacy to give that romantic and welcoming touch.
Exposed beams, natural materials, the choice of natural and luminous colors, with their simplicity enhance the style of the furnishing elements, giving the rooms a timeless elegance. Many pieces of furniture have been customized and made to measure. Even the fabrics are in tune with everything else.
In the dining room the large square table, with a simple design, helps you to stay together with family and friends, finding the pleasure of conviviality. In the kitchen, the functional and country chic counter is integrated with the rest of the furniture. And the bedroom, which has as its headboard some simple bleached wooden boards, combines the white, so pure and clean warm colors of naturally dyed fabrics.
Beyond where you place your taste, between shabby, boho chic or Scandinavian, the important thing is that it remains the unmistakable style of timeless elegance.
And now look at the photos and take inspiration from this house.
