Typical modernist-style town house located in the old town of Sitges, just 3 minutes from San Sebastián beach and a 10-minute walk from the train station.
We have redesigned the interior to make it more welcoming and sophisticated by painting the bedroom walls in a varied color palette and recycling furniture from antique stores. The result is a fresh and vibrant space, which stays true to the overall modernist aesthetic.
Named after the quintessential tropical flower "Bird of Paradise," it is a conscious retreat from the big city that reminds us to live life in joy and freedom, always true to our purpose.
The house is conveniently distributed over two floors; On the ground floor are the common areas and the kitchen, while on the upper floor we have 4 double rooms with artistic finishes and a complete bathroom.
Two of the rooms have a double bed and have been designed for couples; one elegantly decorated with touches of gold and dove gray, while the main wall of the other has been painted in a thick striped pattern of white and indigo, a much more laid-back style. Both share a large terrace overlooking the front yard of the house with surprise! A chill out space with an 8-seater dining table to celebrate an outdoor brunch or dinner under the stars.
On this same level, on the other side of the house, there are another 2 bedrooms, each with 2 single beds, perfect for children or adults traveling together, but separated. You can choose between kelly green and magenta, that's the only difference between them. Both have large windows allowing sunlight throughout the day, as well as custom ceiling light fixtures and suspended wall coat racks. We wanted all the rooms to be unique and original and that is why we decided not to use the usual cabinets.
Separating the double bed rooms from the single bed rooms, there is a full bathroom that overlooks the stairs that go down to the first floor. Here is a dining room on one side and the kitchen and living room on the other. For this renovation, we naturally kept items that were in fairly good condition, such as the TV console, hall sideboard, and nightstands, so we could restore them while capturing our personality in them. This is most evident on the ground floor, where we have kept the modernist patterned tiles on the walls, as well as the trapezoidal tiles on the stairs.
The dining table can seat up to 8 people on vintage French chairs, bought from a local stall that went out of business. Be sure to look in the mirror before you sit down at the table! Mirror Mirror……. which door do you open?
This room opens directly onto the patio with artificial grass, "Sitges" blue walls and bamboo furniture. Without a doubt, it is the best place to hang out with family and friends, since it includes a barbecue, a ping pong table, sun loungers and an outdoor shower. Under the shade of the pergola, warm summer days, when the sun shines overhead, will feel as light as the sea breeze. Outside, sheltered from the terrace above, there is also a storage room with a washing machine and a bathroom with a shower.
Back in the dining room inside the house, we find two armchairs and a coffee table, the perfect combination to play cards or share a drink. The kitchen we have not updated, but we have included all the necessary appliances of modern life: microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a little extra storage. We've added a vintage vinyl rug to continue the aesthetic of the rest of the rooms. Finally, right next to it is a living room with a big screen TV and two sofas, one of which is also a double bed. In short, it is a much more intimate place for overnight guests as well as a fabulous movie theater.
Ave Paraíso is a traditional 4-bedroom Mediterranean home with an American shabby chic feel influenced by the owners' origins; Each room will surprise you with genuine details and restored furniture.
