Simona Garufi Remodels an Apartment in the Salamanca District of Madrid, Spain

Sometimes, in the world of architecture and home decor, it’s nice to keep things minimal and simple. Even if that’s your primary concept for a home, however, you can still make sure every room has at least one piece that pops in order to give your space some personality. One of the best examples of this we’ve seen so far is the succinctly named Apartment.
Apartment, located in Madrid, Spain, is a comfortably sized residential project. It was completed by architect and designer Simona Garufi in late 2012. Inside the apartment, the walls and floors are a pleasant, light colour, combining clean whites and blonde stained wood in a simple way. In most rooms, furnishings are linear, simple, and low in a sort of contemporary way that errs on the side of modern comfort rather than extreme minimalism.
Despite the simple nature of the basics in each room, every space in the apartment has at least one piece that pops. Even within a simplistic decor scheme, it leaves a big positive impact on visitors to include something that catches and entertains their eye. These designers chose fun framed mirrors, uniquely shaped pendant lights, and ornate floor rugs to really set an interesting tone all throughout the house. Colour schemes appear from room to room to interrupt the prominent light and white combination, with orange popping up in one bedroom and light blue breaking monochromatic aesthetics in another. Apartment is truly a grand portrayal of how the smallest detail can really bring an interior design together.
