- Egue y Seta: Gaila's Home, the house of an interior designer
What does an interior designer's home look like? It's a question that comes up when you see the fabulous or ultra-minimal creations in home decor magazines and websites. And you get even more curious when you're talking about Gaila González, an interior designer who works with the Catalan duo, Daniel Pérez and Felipe Araujo from Egue y Seta famous for their charming, warm creations.
“Gaila's Home” is located in A Coruña, Galicia, Spain. An 85-square-metre apartment in a building in the city centre, boasting rooftop views, just like many others but in this case with a special touch that reflects the life of its owner.
Displaying none of the mannerisms or narratives of glossy magazines, as you might expect from an interior designer, this is the home of an eclectic person who loves travelling and who picks up memorabilia to decorate the interiors. The apartment is composed of a bedroom, walk-in robes and bathroom, plus a kitchen off the small living room with a studio corner. This flow of rooms amazes you because it is so authentic, with each and every ornament and painting telling a story.
As Daniel Pérez and Felipe Araujo say, “far from looking like a museum, Gaila's home is rather the result of her constant but playful 'beauty hunting'.” Nothing like the boring, neutral rooms of current trends, “Gaila's Home” has a friendly feel that is the result of the bold, personal choices that highlight a sustainable life filled with joy and relaxation.
