At times, the tendency is to think that a rental apartment can’t be well decorated just because it is temporary accommodation. This flat proves the opposite is true. With few resources, without making a large investment or changing aspects like the “odious” textured wall finish, we were able to transform this apartment, bringing it the warmth and comfort its residents need…despite only renting.
A good architectural design (by the Antonio Lamela studio) dating from the 1970s also helped bring life and personality to this space. In the hall, which has two entrances to the living room, we added a highly original console, over which we hung a print belonging to the owners. The chair in the entrance is in two-tone fibre by Kettal.
In the living room, to showcase the views and light, we had Luxaflex roller blinds installed. Another highlight of this room is the large leather sofa by the Italian firm Misura Emme. The Nordic-style tables are superimposed and very practical for families with young children.
The multifunction TV cabinet by Mario Ruiz for Punt Mobles can house media devices and has space for a music system. There is a hidden cable trunking system for connecting devices. The generous wall-mounted bookshelves are also by Misura Emme. The black and white photos belong to the famous “La Chanca” series by the photographer Carlos Pérez-Siquier.
The terrace, which is next to the dining room, was decorated with artificial grass to conceal the poor condition of the tiles, which could not be replaced as this is a rental flat. The stackable chairs are suitable for exteriors. The tabletop is in wood specially treated for outdoor use and the resin legs are suitable for year-round outdoor use. All of the furniture, including the lamp, is Italian design.
Due to the poor condition of the bathroom, building work was necessary, so the previous layout was modified to move the shower to one end, giving a more spacious feel. The whole room was decorated in white, including the frame of the shower screen enclosure. The only contrast is provided by the specially treated oakwood ceiling panels. They conceal the strip of LED lights that leads on to surround the made-to-measure mirror. Aldea Muebles supplied the generous wall-mounted washbasin cabinet. The wet zones have hexagonal tiles, and the rest of the bathroom walls are covered in washable, damp-resistant vinyl wallpaper.
