Geometric tiles and beamed ceilings enliven the interiors of this Barcelona bolthole, in the city’s Poblenou neighbourhood.
The two-bedroom apartment sits inside a modernist building a stone’s throw from the Rambla del Poblenou and the neighbourhood’s popular beaches. It’s also been freshly renovated by a Dutch interior designer marrying old features with modern finishes.
A bespoke kitchen, appointed with white subway tiles and bespoke cabinetry, opens onto the main living room, with its 3-metre-high beamed ceilings and balcony overlooking the street below. It’s got just enough space to enjoy a morning coffee and read the newspaper in the sun.
