Staggered Family Home With Custom Furnishings

This lovely family home is set in Madrid, Spain and was designed by the architects at Egue y Seta in 2015. The residence is not particularly large, although it does include a variety of spaces, each with its own particularities and design characteristics. The interior functions are organized roughly into three volumes.

In the living room, a tufted leather sofa sits with its back on the bookcase, framing the lounge space together with a two-seater casual sofa and an armchair. They’re all linked by a Catania wool rug and at the center of the lounge area there’s a pair of coffee tables. One of them has a wire basket base while the other features a tray top.

The kitchen is open and shares the space with its own dining table, this time with a simpler design. Classical wooden chairs are spread around it. The kitchen itself occupy one side of the space with white cabinets and built-in amenities. The upper portion of the wall is covered with wall-mounted cabinets with white frames and glass fronts. They go all the way up to the ceiling.

The master bedroom is a bright and cozy space, with a small arched window, white walls and a sloped ceiling which doesn’t make it seem small at all. The furniture is kept simple and space-efficient and this includes the nightstands and a slender console table that rests against the wall.

The master bedroom’s en-suite has large windows and a double-sink vanity

Each of the bathrooms is stylish and functional in its own way. They have tubs, showers, beautiful and eye-catching vanities, quirky mirrors with funky frames and windows that let the natural light in. One of the bathroom, the smallest of them, is a bit different in the sense that its walls are not but gray, matching the polished concrete floor. The ceiling is white, brightening up the space. A small wooden vanity adds a bit of warmth, contrasting with the cool color tones and finishes. It’s a really harmonious decor.
