I am glad I can start spring talking about the making of a very special shooting. I work with the most personal space, homes. I believe that interior designers, we need to listen to our clients and help them shape what they already have in mind. Some already come with a mood board, like Montse! It helps you a lot to find the way to express their personality. She is a red haired woman, curly hair and strong personality. So her apartment should reflect her character and the mixture of cultures born in Paris raised in Barcelona, philologist and exterior commerce; Montse is the Country Manager at Hans Boodt Mannequins for Spain and Portugal, so she travels a lot; she needed a space at home, that she could use some times as a home office, a canvas to pin ideas that inspire her,...
She offered us a white cube and the challenge to dress it without becoming overwhelming. She has a special gift to find treasures at markets, the street, family objects; so our job was to help her choose what to show, put some order, as if her home could be her vintage gallery. That's why we proposed String as the only possible storage/distribution solution.
Clean lines that would strengthed the character of all the objects collected in different circumstances. But we always kept in mind her mantra: “I love the feeling of light, open space, freedom”.
While we had a white canvas, she wanted a space with color brushtrockes, a mixture between nordic space filled with ethnical references and green.
Walls are not dividing the rooms so the use of it is defined by the furniture. The open area should have many functions, a livingroom that should also be dining room;
We will be publishing the whole shooting soon!
