Valle de Bravo - Mexico
The main challenge of this project was to intervene in an existing architectural structure. My participation consisted of the interior design and architecture project, renovating the pool, the terrace, the main bedroom, the bathroom in the main bedroom and the facade in general.
The inspiration behind this project, which lasted 18 months, was a trip to Peru and Ecuador in which I was able to immerse myself into the local culture, focusing mainly on textiles.
From the architectural project we can highlight the use of materials such as: different types of quarry, stone, marble and wood in warm tones to achieve a cozy effect in this rest home.
The project has 4 rooms, the selection of materials is based on trends in textiles and colors such as marsala, which was nominated as color of the year in 2015.
With regard to decoration, the selection of design objects was essential: Lamps by DCW editions of the Lampe Gras design by Bernard-Alvin Gras, icons of the 20th century.
The dining room has a spectacular series 16 pendant lamp designed by Omer Arbel for the Canadian firm Bocci.
Another surprising element within the project is the selection of equipment in the kitchen, because of its characteristic custom blue color, contrasting with the lamps and the island cover in parota wood.
In addition, the selection of the most spectacular rugs is from the Kelly Wearstler collection for The rug company.
The terrace privileges the outdoor furniture from the Kan collection, designed by Paola Navone for Home Fashion, combined with a selection of fabrics from the Cassamance collection and leather for outdoor use.
The project summarizes my vision as a designer to create environments in response to specific needs using design elements mixed with my clients personal objects, and the result is, more than a house a home.
