Located in Born, one of Barcelona’s oldest neighborhoods, this 65-square-meter apartment is housed in a building that’s dated back to the 13th century. A young Italian woman who works in fashion purchased the flat and hired Colombo and Serboli Architecture (CaSA) to completely refurbish it. The transformation resulted in a new, more open layout with vaulted ceilings, a playful color scheme, and original details. With the Barbie movie making a big splash everywhere, the pink used throughout is on trend.
The apartment was originally dark with three bedrooms and a broken layout. Walls were removed, leaving one bedroom and a large open living space for entertaining. Two large windows in the kitchen and living space keep it light and bright.
The open kitchen includes a rounded island and warm grey cabinets with an adjacent bright coral volume that disguises the powder room.
The tiny powder room is clad in glossy pink tile inside the coral-colored arched structure.
The bedroom hides behind pale pink doors just off the living room.
Shades of pink show up throughout the interior, including in the seating area where there’s a Roll Club Chair from Kettal.
A massive storage partition was custom designed to divide the entryway and the living area with rich blue doors and pink interior surfaces in the cut outs.
