A beach house in the North

A beach house in the North

The owners of this cozy home had always spent the summer on the Galician coast. Therefore, when they discovered this fisherman's house, located very close to those of their relatives, they could not resist: they would make it their second residence, a home designed to enjoy their vacations. But before installing, it would be necessary to dedicate a small reform to fit the needs of its new owners.
When restoring it, they decided to respect the architecture of the building -They didn't want to waste the charm of the typical buildings in the area-, but they had to modify the original distribution. They wanted a comfortable house, on one floor, in which the space was well used and that favored the hustle and bustle of a house near the beach. The house, about 100 m2 and rectangular floor, now has a living room with dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the aspects that were most careful when redesigning the new distribution was that natural light reached the last corner. Therefore, all rooms have large windows facing the outside.

Once the works were finished, it was time to decorate it; a task that they decided to commission Rebeca Terrón. It was she who He advised them to create a small hall with a half body partition and, thus, separate the entrance of the hall. Following the tastes and desires of the owners, Rebecca was based on the range of colors of the earth and nature - from green and brown until roasted and raw going by light orange touches- to decorate each room. A combination with which it was possible to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere. In addition, by contrasting these tones with white and beige, the luminosity was enhanced. To prevent the olive bottom of the walls from turning off, they were chosen dark wood furniture. Only the dining room, being a smaller space, was furnished with white-painted pieces.
In this area the color of the walls was also qualified; The olive green was combined with a wallpaper plinth in a lighter hue. As for fabrics and upholstery, smooth fabrics predominate in raw tones - without doubt the best option to counteract the dark color of the woods. To give the decoration an informal and rustic touch, details were added to stripes in brown tones and discreet floral prints in greens and strawberries. The mud floor, leather accessories and vegetable fibers help reinforce that light and attractive rustic air that is breathed throughout the house.
