A Vibrant Barcelona Apartment That’s On-Trend With Pink

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.

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.
