What I Love About My Home

What I more love in my small cool apartment is the light and the colours. The house is east-south-west oriented so I have light all day. I also love the pictures in the entrance, the wallpapers and the handmade headboard. I love too how my apartment looks in this photographs made by Haizea Cacho for the blog coolspacesindonosti.blogspot.com

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home

The biggest challenge that I faced was the distribution of the Kitchen+living room. How to distribute the sofa and the dining room table, so the space didn't look too crowded. The absence of a wall between the living area and the kitchen provides a very different flow to the whole apartment. In order to maintain this, I have retained the clean, white walls and added significant pops of color, artwork, and accessories throughout.

Favoriting and voting have ended.

I love how your dog matches your colour scheme :)

The sofa kind of looks like the Bolla (sp?) one from CB2. Is it by chance from there?

Ooooh, I think I would seriously love that bedroom <3 Too bad pictures were (in my opinion, at least) wasted in details instead of layout shots.

I LOVE that headboard idea, particularly the way the colors have been matched to the deep violet wall. Fantastic to see so many international entries on Apartment Therapy.

Wish I could vote for this but the majority of the images focus on close up details that are already visible in other shots. Would like to see more of each space or how they are connected which I think is key to a successful overall small-cool space.

You have to check out the link she recommended to get the full idea of this flat.

I like it!

fantastic color palette. So nice to go with a more relaxing palette versus all the homes while I spent time in Spain, which were all terracottaish and saturated with orange.

Euskalduna zara ala? Kaixo Denverretik! Love your place too - I can see Monte Igueldo in the pic above your bed.

sorry, but where's the space? I see great edited and restrained use of knick knacks and things, but not in use of the space.
I wish there was more house to see..but the photographer did a great job bringing out the flavour of the house!

I have that same lounge chair but in a tweedy beige. Your's kicks mine's ass! I love the sofa too.

I'm considering getting a pair of Eames wire chairs for my dining table, but I'm not sure about comfort (and the infamous waffle butt). Do you find your Bertoia chairs at all comfortable?

Love the purple in the bedroom!

Hi Roxy72. The sofa is from a shop in San Sebastian, Spain. I don't know the model. Unfortunately CB2 doesn't distribute to Spain.

To Fleo and Hessilou. Yes maybe you are right and the pictures are focused in the details instead on the whole space. But is difficult to transmit an idea in five photos. If you want to see more, you can check my sister's blog coolspacesindonosti.blogspot.com as Daylight has recomended. Thank you anyway.

Kaixo Dlach, bai euskalduna naiz. Atsegina da euskera hitzegiten duen norbait euskaditik kanpo aurkitzea. Bai asmatu dezu, Igeldo eta Kontxako hondartzaren argazki bat da. Agur bero bat Donostitik.

Hi Chummy, I love the Bertoia chairs, and they are quite comfortable. There aren't like a sofa, but for a meal they work. I love the Eames work too. I am saving for the Eames RAR rocker.

What is east-south-west oriented? Is it safe to assume the fourth side of the house is north oriented?

The two bedrooms are east oriented. The bathroom is south oriented. The Kitchen has two windows, one is south and the other is west oriented. And the last window, that is located in the living room, is west oriented also. My neighbor's flat is the one that is north oriented.

I already loved the colors here and I love the space even more after checking out the blog link. Gorgeous!
