Spain meets Scandinavia

I have a beautiful home to share with you today - the home of interior designer, Merixtel Riba, located in the Spanish district, Barcelona L'Eixample. I was inspired by it's design, and I know you will be too. It boasts a lovely, clean Scandinavian aesthetic, paired with delicious accents of Spanish colour and pattern.

Merixtel allotted a third of the 400 square meter home to her office and showroom, and the other two thirds is the family home.

The neutral backdrop of white walls and wooden floors, and the uncluttered styling is distinctly Scandinavian.

This room, with it's many doors and windows, could've been tricky to furnish, but having all the furniture in the middle anchored by the large round rug is genius.

The original handcrafted Catalan brick roof, which was uncovered during the renovation, was left exposed as a feature in the kitchen. Beautiful Moroccan tiles on the floor bring more warmth to the room. Hard lines and industrial touches define the kitchen area, while the dining area alongside consists of softer materials and lots of curves.

The striking simplicity and clean lines continue in the bedroom and bathroom. The dark walls in the bathroom contrast the lighter walls throughout the rest of the home.

A gorgeous home, don't you agree?! Clean and uncluttered, while still being warm and welcoming.
