9 keys for a functional but elegant space (interior designer’s word)

1. CHANGE THE TEXTILES IN EVERY SEASON

«Fabrics are the soul of a house and one of the most important elements to add color to each space. If you change the covers of the cushions, for example, you will modify the atmosphere of your house, which will seem different. Bet on happy mixes, but not strident. These are from La Maison and the sofa is from TC Project.”

The interior designer Pia Capdevila, a specialist in natural, practical and well-distributed environments

2. CHOOSE VERSATILE FURNITURE

“Opt for pieces that cover various needs. On the stairs, instead of a railing there is a storage cabinet, with bottle rack and bench. The Mr J. sculpture is by Vilató and Vilató, and the flooring is by Porcelanosa».
