Design and decorate your attic into many levels


This wonderful space was created by famous Spanish architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez. He designed this space in the attic area of an early 20th century building in Madrid. It is made up of a number of different angles and edges, so it vaguely resembles a maze-like structure.

The great thing about this place is that it has been cleverly designed to look larger than it actually is. This is also aided by the fact that white walls and a generally white color theme, are great for maximizing any space. The only thing to make this space look even bigger is the presence of a mirror or two.

It is incredible how the one storey space has been divided horizontally to form two floors. The bedroom is seen above the living area, giving the place a sense of openness. The place looks sturdy and solid because of the hardwood flooring. The floor is painted an ashen brown that complements the white walls perfectly. It would have been a mistake to paint the floor a stark, pure white. The reason for this is that too much pure white has a tendency to make a place seem sterile and clinical- not a welcoming feeling.

The owners have kept the place simple. The white is accessorized by black accents, giving it a slight rock and roll edge. The big carpet in the living area is black and gray. The carpet is modern, with an industrial pattern- not too feminine. The other black accents in the room are the photo frames that hold pretty much the only art work on the walls.

There isn’t much furniture- and the table in the living room is sleek, simple and very reminiscent of modern artists in terms of its futuristic shape. The single chair matches the table in its modernity.

It is wonderful to have a space like this to live in, but also not very kid-friendly due to its sharpness. However, if you want to make your space seem more sophisticated and classy, this is the way to go.
