Barcelona Style: Color blocking in Horta

Color blocking-Guillermo Santo-Eclectic Trends

I never stop being surprised when discovering new interior projects in my own hometown. Barcelona has pretty peculiar and great features with a growing design scene, but this color blocking interior rather seems from another planet.

Interior and product designer Guillermo Santomà is certainly unafraid of powerful color combinations in his home located in the Horta neighborhood (Barcelona).

José Hevia Photography

A combination of strongly minimal geometry, tessellated tiles and a quirky palette make this space feel more like an installation set than a private three-storey home.

“A place to live is always transformed depending on the needs – the purpose is to live surrounded by something that represents you. Be throughout the construction process, day-by-day, or in the play, I’m continuously rethinking the space”.-Guillermo Santomà.

I am just wondering how it might look filled with furniture and objects even you only realize it’s empty at a second glimpse. Color totally fills this place. G, x

How about some extra inspiration?

  1. The color blocking images by Jose Hevia are nice, the actual blocking in the images is I think pretty good and could be better had more colors been added. A touch more here and there to break up the larger areas that dominate the various rooms in the pictures, I am designer and a licensed builder myself and have seen this done before and at least 3 different colors per room really does work.
