Our House Tour is straight from Barcelona, Spain and the Natural Park of Collserola. This picturesque home is located in a protected natural area with woodlands, meadows, wetlands and diverse wildlife, featured in El Mueble. Immediately I am drawn to the arches in the entrance and foyer, antique oak floor boards, tinted concrete walls and rustic beams. The interior reflects the concept of bringing the outdoors in, embracing the natural surroundings in the design decisions.
This is a country home that is warm and inviting with large open living spaces, a consistent earth-tone palette throughout and comfortable furnishings. Below, a kitchen that combines cottage elements with modern cabinetry and professional grade appliances.
A simple concrete mantel and fireplace surround serves as the rooms focal point with large windows that frame the exterior beauty of living in a National Park. A monochromatic color scheme is the perfect backdrop allowing the exterior beauty to connect to the interior.
The master suite combines simple cottage furnishings, a modern sleek bathroom and large dressing area. The white finish of the rustic beams gives the rooms an open and airy feel while the dark finish of the windows and doors adds just the right amount of contrast.
A fabulous covered patio connects the home to the gardens while providing an extended living area. Dining al fresco in this beautiful garden, now that would be lovely. I hope you have enjoyed your trip to Barcelona today, visit our House Tour category for a sneak peek into homes from all around the world.
