An apartment for four people in Lisbon, brings together different decoration styles, all with a common goal: comfort for the whole family.
The owner of this 2 bedroom apartment is a collector of antiquarian pieces and the challenge was well defined: combine the collection’s pieces and integrate them in a space of comfort for the whole family. Not wishing to compromise on any particular style, the journey through the various divisions brings us different environments. “Our intention was precisely to assume the eclecticism of the project and to vary in the choices,” explains Ana Proença, one of the designers responsible for the project.
The family living area is composed by a living room and a dining room, both with neutral tones and textures in the draperies, upholsteries and carpets. The chaise longue couch was custom-made by Spacemaker. Dividing the two areas, a Chesterfield suede leather sofa was reused in a dark brown tone. In the center, a Nogushi table by Isamu Nogushi, modernist piece from the 1950s.
Gray, black and gold were the colors chosen for the master bedroom. A Baroque style mirror stands out, hanging over the bed, and is one of the owners’ favorite pieces. On the nightstands, two lamps with a Estremoz marble base.
The grey tweed wallpaper pattern, from Designers Guild, transforms the office in an admittedly masculine space. The decoration has some detailing, such as a second black leather chaise longue Le Corbusier and a wall clock that is part of the couple’s collection.
Both Designers, Ana Proença and Célia Mestre, projected two overlapping beds with a bookshelf for storing books and toys, for the twins children’s rooms. Ana Proença explains that “the map of the world of the wallpaper contrasts with the red stripes of the fabrics, leaving much room for imagination and exploration.”
