Usually people either love or hates attics, housing solutions that are usually medium or small-sized located on the top floor.
It’s definitely a style of housing that is not suitable for too high people or for who wants to fully exploit each inch of their house.
It is instead suited for those who love places that are not too large, ceilings with exposed beams and a panoramic view on the roofs.
In recent years attics have been revaluated, both for their beauty and elegance, and for the ease with which it is possible to exploit their entire surface thanks to a well-structured design project.
As every other house, even attics can be furnished in very different ways according to the space, the length and your personal tastes.
Today we want to show you five different attics, designed in a very functional and unique way… Let’s begin with the first one!
The attic reminds us immediately a house in the mountains, so why not supporting this idea with the return at the usage of wood? So, the first house we are showing you is placed in the mountains near Aosta and has been designed as it was a real design chalet. The use of typical local material is fundamental!
Oak wood and natural stones are perfect to give the house a warm sensation, while glass divisions, instead of walls, let the light pass through and let the rooms interact with each other.
From Italy we move now to Madrid! In this bright attic, pastel-coloured tones dominate next to strong and iridescent nuances, and transform the environment in a mix of colour effects and tones.
The white beams give brightness and make the environment clean and spacious. The furniture is simple but never taken for granted, and gives to the whole house a sensation of freshness and positivity.
Let’s come back to Italy, more specifically to Mantua, where an attic, realized from an old crawl space, becomes a bright place, candid as a cloud, broken only by some little coloured piece of furniture, that stands out in the absolute white.
The use of light tones makes easier the reflection of light and its spreading. The spaces are fluid and give continuity to the parts of the house, without classifying the areas that compose it in too strict schemes.
We are now in France, in the centre of the romantic Paris: romantic as this little attic, where the warmth of the wooden beams mixes with an elaborate space with light colours that range from grey to white.
Every single space, given the reduced length, has been studied to create and define all the rooms needed for everyday life, like for example the night area, to which it’s possible to access through a simple wooden stair. Little spaces, but a priceless view on the Parisians roofs!
The last, but not the least, is the attic of our “Porta Venezia Apartment”, placed in the most glamour area of the city of Milan, a few meters from the Quadrilatero della Moda.
The Italian furniture mixes with the Fifties and Sixties French design and, in order to give a personal touch, each space is composed by different-coloured walls, from the living room to the bathroom and to the two bedrooms. The white colour dominates on the ceiling, giving brightness to the whole flat.
The centrepiece? An adorable private terrace!
Now that we’ve amazed you, which of these could be your ideal attic?
