A home should be a warm and comfortable space; therefore, Elena Castells adapts to the needs of each client, producing a light study to define and achieve unique environments and homes.
For this private house of 300m2 in Barcelona, the interior designer chose warm materials such as wood and neutral colours that give the whole house a feeling of modernity and serenity.
The house has four floors distributed as follows: a basement with games room for the children of the house; a main floor with kitchen, living room and bookcase; a second floor with four bedrooms and a magnificent solarium on the deck.
For general lighting, built-in LEDs have been integrated into the ceiling allowing camouflage points of light that are only visible when needed.
In the dining room, there are two CRATER pendants in gold and black illuminating the long table and cut out on the large window that brings natural light to the whole room.
In the living room area, we find the STELLA whose fabric screen diffuses the light and creates a dim lighting. The arm of this lamp is adjustable both horizontally and vertically, ideal as backlight.
Near the bookcase, the LUPE floor lamp, designed by Jordi Busquets, maintains the aesthetics of the whole; its head can be adjusted to the needs of each family member.
Elena Castells stands out in the world of interior design for her care of light, one of her signatures as an interior designer. As she says, “A project without light is like a frame without a diamond”
On the landing, the NAN projector highlights the frames of the staircase, providing points of decorative light that reinforce the general light.
In the master bedroom highlights the black BERNI with LED reader. An illumination especially designed for the head of the bedroom, acting as ambient or reading light. These luminaires are a Nahtrang design.
From Nahtrang we also find the LINK projectors that direct their light towards the shelves and the television. It is important to properly illuminate the television to avoid visual fatigue or tired vision.
Finally, the BLISS table lamp with wood structure complements the bedroom lighting.
In the children’s room, industrial style luminaries predominate. In the bed, the CELIA wall light with its articulated arm makes it easy to read in bed. We cannot miss the GRU lamp on the desk to facilitate concentration and study.
The result is a timeless, elegant, modern and practical space.
