As we have already told you, in 2022 the trends are on our side and the decoration of our home will be based, as the style of this impressive New York apartment marks, on neutral colors and light, thus expanding the spaces. And it is that this game of whites in various shades, from the purest to beige, taupe or smoke gray is, precisely, the basic deco trick that we need to copy in our house to make the rooms look bigger. “The continuity in the color range works very well because it unifies the spaces making them appear larger”, the interior designer Helena Martín explained to us here, and it is as they are reflected in this work collected by Essential Home.

Through diffused sources of warm light inside furniture and shelves, ‘hidden’ within the moldings, with wall lights that focus on ceilings and floors or with ceiling and auxiliary design lamps, an enveloping, comfortable and which looks wider.
