Art director Eva Morell’s Barcelona home, found on apartment therapy, is a gorgeous hodge-podge of decor and furniture accumulated over the course of her life. Her home has an intimate feel: it is a space that reflects the nature of its occupier. Having lived in a number of Spain’s most beautiful cities, the objects that adorn her current home have been acquired from each of her residences and have travelled with her ever since. “I love having people at home,” says Eva, “They feel so comfortable. There are good vibes in this place, I really think that.” Eva’s home is one that truly feels like it has been lived in. Below, we show you how to get the style.
Eva uses scatter cushions and throws in her house, details which are important in creating a sense of cosiness and comfort. Hubsch’s serenely patterned Cushion is the perfect starting place to build up a collection, or you can try ABURI II by Eva Sonaike for something similar to her kooky cactus cushions. Next, you will need some shelves to display, like Eva, little trinkets and knick knacks. We Do Wood’s bamboo Loop Shelf is a great choice. The slim metal brackets and light-coloured wood give the shelf a natural, almost rustic character, without being too obtrusive.The framed posters, art prints and illustrations that cover Eva’s walls give her home an individual feel. For your own home, you should choose pictures that you love and that suit your taste. One print that we love and would go great with this decor is Rachel Parker’s homely A4 Printed Artwork, a modern digital abstraction “inspired by cross stitching and geometric shapes.” For the sofa, Assemblyroom Furniture’s Finsbury 3 Seater Sofa with its sleek and unadorned contemporary look and neutral colours is an excellent fit. Eva uses a metal Anglepoise lamp to light her desk; Besselink & Jones’ Purist Multi Adjustable Floor Lamp has a luxurious, pared-down, modernist aesthetic that would give the room a little bit of edge. Finally, Eva uses vintage furniture given to her by her grandparents. You may not have any family heirlooms to spare, but Hierve’s beautiful woven Loom Stool is a great alternative. An homage to ancient Mexican folk art, the natural and handmade look the stool brings will complement the rest of your home perfectly.
