The house of Mercader de Indias interior designer Carlos Serra is a reflection of his personality and lifestyle – with a focus on spacious interiors, natural light, and easygoing finishes.
The kitchen merges with the dining room to create a cozy atmosphere. In the wide-set room, separated by a chimney, black and white hydraulic kitchen tiles stand out, as do the black appliances.
One of the house’s standout features are the pristine white floors, walls, and ceilings. It proves the ideal backdrop for Carlos Serra’s furniture and ornaments, which have mostly been acquired during his travels.
The large dining room holds a project very dear to Serra – a spacious work cupboard with antique Chinese doors that holds all the crockery and tableware. It sits in contrast to the round white dining table surrounded by six African armchairs.
A large sofa surrounds a large fireplace above which rests a Mao child’s outfit. The sofa is backed by a four-meter chest of washed elm wood, also of Chinese origin, and on the other side, a Moroccan auxiliary table with marquetry inlaid with mother-of-pearl. Natural textures are another one of the house’s main characteristics. You’ll find wicker, cane, rattan or raffia throughout the space. via
