Tucked away in the Vista Bahía Condo at Los Sueños, Herradura, lies a property that has undergone a transformation so profound it’s almost magical, and at the heart of this metamorphosis is the power of design.
When we at Natural Instinct first stepped into Vista Bahía 1D, the challenge was clear. The furniture pieces had solid structures, but their hues no longer resonated with contemporary aesthetics. Instead of replacing these pieces, we saw an opportunity to breathe new life into them. The facades and even the beds were lovingly reimagined with a fresh coat of paint and tastefully reupholstered with chic fabrics.
Beyond the furniture, the space itself invited for rejuvenation. Every nook and cranny was painted anew, sweeping away the years and letting the condo shine. Outdated fans were replaced, and new televisions were mounted, bringing the property firmly into the modern age. In the kitchen, the dated granite countertop was swapped out for something more in vogue, and we introduced elegant lighting fixtures to accentuate the space. The entryway wasn’t neglected either; it now boasts stylish hanging lamps that offer a warm welcome.
But what truly sets this project apart is its transformative power. Vista Bahía was built around 15 years ago and originally featured much darker woods. Now, after our intervention, it’s hard to believe it’s the same property. The condo’s fresh palette makes it feel like an entirely new space rather than a renovated one.
Walking through the revamped space, one can’t help but notice how much fresher, cozier, and cleaner everything feels. Originally intended to be sold pre-renovation, the owners fell in love with the property all over again and decided to keep it.
A notable change was in the primary bathroom. The once-present door leading to the tub was removed and replaced by a sleek screen, adding a touch of luxury to the master bedroom. Modern handrails, contemporary fixtures, and fresh curtains further elevate the home’s look.
One particular challenge was the walls. Previously, they had a “wash” appearance in a beige tone that looked rather worn out. The shift towards lighter elements is a modern trend, offering spaces a brighter and fresher appearance. Yet, in seeking contrast, the doors and closet doors retained their tasteful dark wood essence.
This project stands as a testament to the idea that sometimes, one doesn’t need to buy a new home or move. Sometimes, all it takes is a change in details. With brighter, more modern lighting and an eye for design, even familiar spaces can take on a completely new life.
At Natural Instinct Interior Design, we believe in the power of transformation, and Vista Bahía 1D is a shining example of that belief.
