Designer Destination: Casa Bonay In Barcelona
Set in a neoclassical-style façade, Casa Bonay in the beautiful city of Barcelona was originally built in 1869 and has since been given a contemporary — and seriously stylish — makeover. While many of its original architectural elements are kept in tact (the cement tiles were carefully refurbished and its façade restored), a modern Mediterranean aesthetic and a clever use of color adds a playful new feel to the space. Click through to check it out.
Moody yet colorful decor creates a welcoming atmosphere in this common living and dining area. A large mirror above the fireplace and tall cherry blossom branches play with scale.
Terracotta pots line the courtyard hallway on the main floor, where five rooms walk out to a private terrace with outdoor showers, hammocks and direct access to the Spanish sunlight.
Color-blocked walls liven up a narrow hallway on the second floor.
The style of the rooms is clean and contemporary. A floating side table is topped with a pendant lamp, keeping the area clear of wires.
Here’s an idea for small spaces! A mounted hanging rack adds a subtle graphic hit while replacing a traditional closet.
Calming colors and textures play with geometric accents and bright patterned tiles underfoot.
Double doors lead to a sweet little outdoor seating area. Painted exposed brick walls keep things fresh and light while adding texture.
A private patio to enjoy the stunning Barcelona views is dressed with lush greens and bright turquoise chairs.
One of Barcelona’s most stylish coffee shops, Satan’s Coffee Corner, is located on the ground floor of the hotel.
Blonde wood bar stools have a Scandinavian influence, while navy walls and potted greenery fit in with the rest of the hotel’s Mediterranean-inspired decor.
