ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE - CONTRASTING THE VERY OLD WITH THE BRAND NEW!

cloister in Barcelona turned into a modern living room

I like this living room in Barcelona. It is in a modern home that incorporates as part of the living room, the architecture of 500 year old cloisters - an ancient covered walkway with barrel vaulted ceilings and and arches.

Love the juxtaposition between the very modern style and the very old structure.  The light colored wide plank wood floors, the minimalist modern decor all work because of the bold but romantic architecture.

I like.  I would live here.  Would you?

Love the tall arched front door with the porthole window.  Very stately.  Also I am very intrigued by that screen that divides the home office from the rest of the room.  Hmmm...wonder where that comes from?  I will have to do a search to find this screen.  I like!

Anyhoooo, Happy Tuesday!

  1. My antique architectural fragments are my clients' favorite pieces.
    The same idea...adding some old texture to your more modern home.
