Japan in Spain
One trend that is growing massively in Spain is Japanese interior. This ancient style, also known as ‘Kanso’ is infused in thousand of years of Japanese tradition that works calming and culturally presents the Japanese Zen way of life in your home. It is coming from the tradition of inhering furniture from older relatives. Kanso observes the movement of energy in a room; the more objects in a room, the harder it is for energy to flow freely, creating a hectic environment. With the use of wood, light colours, and hints of black, it is all about functionality, simplicity, and keeping clutter away. The house staging service of Casamona focuses a lot on this interior style, you can read more about it on this page.

Catalan with a modern twist
A lot of apartments in Barcelona are infused with a typical Catalan interior: authentic rough stone walls, tiled floors, arched brick ceilings, and wooden beams. The rich Catalan architecture has a range of elements and highly valued concepts that can be characterized by structural building features such as the arched stone ceiling, also called the ‘volta’. The stone ceilings are still used in new or renovation projects to preserve cultural heritage. Often, local materials are used to build the popular ‘volta Catalana’, such as brick, light stone, or pressed blocks of earth and plaster; materials with a low environmental impact, which is one of the main considerations for the construction industry of the 21st century. As a result, this technique is being widely used, even for new projects.
In Spain, a home is where friends and family are. But due to the pandemic, it became a place where you live and work. Therefore, people stayed home more and realized that they wanted to have a more comfortable and aesthetic home.
Without losing the beautiful Catalan features in their homes in Barcelona, they managed to give their interior a fresh modern twist with partly white painted plastered walls, wooden floors, and modern furniture. Leaving the rustic brick ceilings, the tiled floors untouched and combining white walls with coarse stone walls, it is a perfect combination of modern interior with Catalan history. You can find this style in a lot of the beautiful apartments in Barcelona that Casamona has to offer here.

In 2021 a lot was going on, because of the pandemic, many lifestyles were changed, working at home, taking care of the children, and managing life in a different way.
