A Vibrant Barcelona Apartment That’s On-Trend With Pink

This 65-square-meter apartment in Barcelona has a new layout with vaulted ceilings, original details, and is completely on-trend with lots of pink.

Located in Born, one of Barcelona’s oldest neighborhoods, this 65-square-meter apartment is housed in a building that’s dated back to the 13th century. A young Italian woman who works in fashion purchased the flat and hired Colombo and Serboli Architecture (CaSA) to completely refurbish it. The transformation resulted in a new, more open layout with vaulted ceilings, a playful color scheme, and original details. With the Barbie movie making a big splash everywhere, the pink used throughout is on trend.

Walls were removed, leaving one bedroom and a large open living space for entertaining. Two large windows in the kitchen and living space keep it light and bright.closeup of modern kitchen with grey cabinets and pink speckled backsplash and counterside interior view of modern kitchen with orange arched room within a roomThe open kitchen includes a rounded island and warm grey cabinets with an adjacent bright coral volume that disguises the powder room.angled view of modern pink tiled bathroomThe tiny powder room is clad in glossy pink tile inside the coral-colored arched structure.angled interior view of modern apartment with pink and orange kitchenpartial view of modern kitchen with grey cabinets and orange structureinterior of modern apartment with view into minimalist bedroomangled interior view of modern apartment with arched structure and pink doorsThe bedroom hides behind pale pink doors just off the living room.interior view of modern apartment living space with kitchen to left and view of dining tableangled interior view of modern living space with pink dining table and seatingcloseup corner view in modern apartment with pink chair and trip of side tablesShades of pink show up throughout the interior, including in the seating area where there’s a Roll Club Chair from Kettal.interior view of modern living room with grey and pink furnishings and a navy wallpartial view in modern apartment of living room with grey sectional sofa with wall of navy cabinets and pink door wayA massive storage partition was custom designed to divide the entryway and the living area with rich blue doors and pink interior surfaces in the cut outs.angled corner view of wall of navy cabinets with pink cutoutpink lined hallway looking into white living roompink hallway view into modern living room with navy cabinetsstorage cubby with lamp and objects with views into next roombuilt-in structure of storage cabinets in navy and pinkhallway with navy wall cabinetsnavy wall with hidden storage cabinets and passageway into bedroomclosed wall of cabinets in navypartial view of room in modern apartment with pink cabinetsmodern bathroom with pink tilesPhotography by Roberto Ruiz.
