{Violán’s gorgeous kitchen features a vast island, chevron-patterned wood floors original to the building, and a beautiful, antique Chinese screen. Everything is so different, but it works together beautifully.}

In honor of our trip to Barcelona next week, today’s “Fabulous Room” features the gorgeous kitchen and dining room of one of my favorite interior designers, Lázaro Rosa Violán, whose 6,2000 square foot house/studio houses these amazing spaces. Technically, they are two separate rooms, but the kitchen opens onto the dining room. Violan’s gift of being an urban archaeologist of sorts, is evidenced in his amazing, eclectic work. I am beyond excited to be staying in a hotel that he designed and look forward to visiting more of his projects while I am in Barcelona.

Violán designed the beautiful white leather chairs and has used them in several of the restaurants he has designed. Notice the Picasso on the mantel and the extraordinary Murano glass chandelier. I love the unexpected whimsy that the floral rug adds.}

  1. my boyfriend has panels like the 1st pic – antique one’s from an old building in NYC – it was a cileing in the place – and they just put 3 ceilings over it – ONE day he’ll either sell them or actually put them up! (not my taste)

    i’m haven’ a party – come on by!!!!

    Happy Weekend!!!

  2. Opulent and strikingly timeless. I think one reason why all the different materials seem to work beautifully together…is because all the rich and elegant colors/materials are harnessed by the white used in both spaces.

  3. Thanks for introducing me to Melissa Warner! You always have such great posts.

    Stop by my new-ish design blog if you get a chance!

  4. amazing — everything from the chevron floors to the styling to the white walls to the french doors! this could easily go to the top of my favorite spaces list! thank you for introducing me to violan’s work, i’m off to go check out more!

  5. That kitchen makes me feel like I’m in a really fun restaurant–great idea, and I’m tucking it away. Why not put something spectacular like that in the kitchen, it is after all, where we live.

  6. I absolutely love Violán’s Chinese screen on the kitchen wall. Since Antique Chinese screens like that are not an easy piece to get your hands on, I know MISHA Handmade wallpapers can be a marvelous substitute if one wants to create such a wonderful backdrop for their own kitchen.
