When choosing a home, each person has their preferences; for the couple that inhabits this the priority was to enjoy abundant natural light. Since they are both freelancers - he is a writer and she is an illustrator - they work at home and for them the most important thing was to have clarity as many hours a day as possible. In the opinion of the owner, the light in a town house is almost always associated with an urban landscape and, when she visited this apartment, the surprise was that the terrace had been closed to gain meters of surface. He immediately imagined it as a gallery where to place tall plants.

The goal was create the feeling of having a green space, isolated from the city. The decision was made, they would live there. The surface of the room was very generous and, with a functional distribution, it was possible to create a work area for each. As for the decoration, there was a small inconvenience ... The two provided furniture from the houses where they had lived before, and the styles of each were very different. He, classic and with wooden furniture as a base; and she, colorist and a convinced fetishist, with surprise objects such as heels and masks, turned into decorative accessories with a surprise effect. It was not easy to make furniture and pieces so different; Therefore, the result is surprising. Eclectic and welcoming spaces, regardless of trends, they happen in the hall and in the hall; while in the master bedroom, the atmosphere becomes quieter and more intimate. It is a large space that the owner liked for its luminosity.

A mirror and a dresser give it uniqueness and warmth respectively. The first, with its convex moon and its frame of coral branches is a piece of great visual impact; the second, acquired at an antique fair, is made of wood and with its elegant handles brings authenticity to the environment. On it, the owner arranged several headdresses that form an attractive composition overflowing with style, which adds a plus of sophistication.

In the children's bedroom, the decoration also moves away from the conventional. Although the starting point is a classic in children's rooms: the combination of white and blue. It was enough to choose two different tables - one with striated legs and a current one, rectilinear - to energize the environment. The old design was rescued from a container and hand painted by the owner; a retro aesthetic lamp was placed on it; both are the counterpoint to the model of purified lines. In short, a free spirit housing, like its inhabitants.
