Typical modernist local townhouse situated in the historic center of
Sitges, just 3min to San Sebastian beach and 10min walk to the train
We have redesigned the interior to make it more cozy and sophisticated
by painting the bedroom walls in a colorful palette and upcycling bits
of furniture from antique shops. The outcome is a fresh and vibrant
space, whilst staying true to the overall modernist aesthetic.
Named after the quintessential tropical flower “Bird of Paradise”, it’s
a mindful retreat from the big city that reminds us to live life in joy
and freedom, always true to our purpose.
The house is conveniently distributed over two floors; in the ground
floor there are the communal areas and kitchen, whereas in the upper
floor we have arranged 4 double bedrooms with artful finishes and a
2 of the bedrooms have a double bed and have been thought for couples;
one elegantly decorated with splashes of gold and dove grey, whereas
the other’s main wall has been painted in a thick stripe pattern of
white and teal, a far more relaxed style. They both share a large
terrace overlooking the front door courtyard of the house with
surprise! An outdoor chill out boasting an 8-seater dining table to
host al fresco brunch or dinner parties.
In this same level, facing the other side of the house, there are 2
other bedrooms, each with 2 single beds, perfect for children or adults
travelling alongside, but separate. You can choose between Kelly green
and magenta, that’s the only big difference between them. Both have
large windows that allow sunlight all day long, as well as custom
ceiling lamps and suspended wall clothing racks. We wanted all of the
bedrooms to be unique and original and that’s why we chose not to place
the usual wardrobes.
Separating the double bed rooms from the single bed rooms, there is a
complete bathroom facing the stairs that go down to the first floor.
Here there is a dining room on one side and the kitchen and lounge on
the other side. For this home renovation, we naturally retained
elements that were in fairly good condition – such as the television
console, the entrance cabinet and the side tables – so we could modify
them to capture our personality. This is most evident in the ground
floor, where we have kept the modernist patterned tiles on the walls,
as well as the trapezium shaped tiles of the stairs.
The inside dining table can seat up to 8 people on vintage French
chairs picked from a local parade now closed. Make sure to look at the
mirror before sitting down at the table! Mirror, mirror on the wall…….
what door do you open?
This room opens up right onto the courtyard with artificial grass,
Sitges’ mythical blue-washed walls and some bamboo furniture. It’s no
doubt the best place for hanging out with family and friends as it
includes a barbecue, ping pong table, sunbeds and an outdoor shower.
Under the cane reed shading of the pergola, the warm summer days, when
the sun shines hot, will feel light as sea breeze. Outside, sheltered
by the upstairs terrace, there is also a storage room with a washing
machine and a bathroom with a shower.
Back indoors to the dining area, there are two armchairs and a coffee
table, the perfect pairing for playing cards or sharing a drink. The
kitchen wasn’t updated, but we included all the necessary household
appliances of modern life: microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and
some extra storage space. We added a vintage vinyl floor mat to keep up
with the aesthetic of the other rooms. Finally, next to it there’s the
lounge with a large TV screen and two sofas, one of which is a double
bed too. All in all, it's a far more intimate place for extra guests
staying over and at the same time a fabulous Cinema Room.
