A 10-year-old single-family home is now a bright and practical house, with a strong family character, which has ideas for copying. When the owners took over what was going to be their home they decided to undertake a reform to make their 90 square meters profitable and adapt them to their needs. Laura Yerpes Interior Design Studio was in charge of the "miracle."
It is located in Moncada, a town 5 km from Valencia. The original state of the house was optimal since it was not very old either. But the distribution was poorly resolved and the original dimensions of the spaces very small.
The pattern of the new owners to the study in charge of the reform was that they needed to make their space. They did not want obstacles in the passage areas. They demanded modern and bright touches and very practical spaces. For example, they liked the idea of picking up the stairs on a white shelf, which at the same time serves as a closet for the lobby.
The motto of the study here "When space does not spare, ingenuity must not be lacking" It is evident in every corner.
As for the decoration, simple and minimalist lines fill spaces full of light in which the pieces have been limited to the indispensable ones. Only the most functional have a place. The color palette revolves around light, red and gray tones. For furniture has been made to measure to maximize the available spaces and meet the needs.

Laura Yerpes's studio was responsible for the reform of this family home. For furniture, it has been tailored to take advantage of the space and adapt the furniture to the needs of a family with two children. They did not want to abuse unnecessary decorative elements, only functional pieces, which did not saturate the space.
For decoration, it was based on a light color palette with gray and red notes. This is how you get a modern and cosmopolitan room that shares space with the dining room.
In the living room they face a sofa and two armchairs, leaving a free central space. On the wall, a low bench with audiovisuals and three columns on the wall. The dining room is located between the sofas, near the wall.
The living room furniture has been custom designed. Carpet and deco objects, from Thai Natura.Separator element
Behind the armchairs, an element of wooden slats that delimits the space but maintains visual continuity with a distribution area.
In the project, the entrance and the distribution corridor that connects the living room and the kitchen were modified to create a wider and more fluid space in steps and paths.
