Interior Design: Margaret Bissu Interiors
This residence is located in Avandaro, Valle de Bravo, State of Mexico.
The main challenge of this project was to intervene an existing architectural structure. My participation consisted of the interior design and architecture project, renovating the pool, the terrace, the main bedroom, the main bedroom bathroom and the facade in general.
The inspiration behind this project, which lasted 18 months, was a trip to Peru and Ecuador in which I was able to immerse myself into the local culture, mainly focused on textiles.
From the architectural project we can highlight the use of materials such as: different types of quarry, stone, marble, wood, in warm tones to achieve a cozy effect in this rest house.
The project has 4 rooms, the selection of materials is based on the trends in textiles and colors such as marsala, which was nominated for color of the year in 2015.
In the decorative theme, the selection of design objects such as: lamps from DCW editions of the lampe gras, design by Bernard-Alvin Gras, icons of the 20th century, was paramount.
The dining room has a spectacular suspended lamp, model 16, designed by Omer Arbel for the Canadian firm Bocci.
Another surprise element within the project is the selection of equipment in the kitchen, due to its characteristic bespoke blue color, contrasting with the lamps and the island cover in parota wood.
In addition, the selection of the most spectacular rugs from the Kelly Wearstler collection for The rug company.
The terrace favors outdoor furniture from the Kan collection designed by Paola Navone for home fashion combined with a selection of fabrics from the Cassamance Collection and outdoor leather.
The project summarizes my vision as a designer to create environments that respond to specific needs using design elements mixed with personal objects of my clients and the result more than a house is a home.
