We already wrote about Cristina Jorge de Carvalho Interior Design in our magazine and on our website, but we didn't want to keep this wonderful project from our readers either. Once again, the unique style of the designer results in a timeless and at the same time contemporary and eclectic whole.
Some time ago we wrote about the remarkable showroom with which CJC Interior Design presented a unique business card of their design studio. Almost every year, founder Cristina Jorge de Carvalho changes the working environment in order to be able to show clients some new pieces, a different set-up or innovative ideas. It is the perfect reflection of the style that the Portuguese designer applies to all the architecture and interior projects she undertakes with her studio.
Another special and successful project by CJC Design
For Quinta Patiño House, Cristina and her team took care of both the interior renovation and the decoration. The result is a balanced mix of timelessness and contemporary eclecticism, as we are used to seeing from the design studio, although here a slightly more classical interpretation was chosen. This can be seen in the entrance hall, where the contrast between black and white takes the lead. The royal staircase and the marble floor radiate a very Classicist atmosphere, but this fits in perfectly with contemporary pieces such as the 'Felt Chair' by Cappellini (design: Marc Newson). Just like the entrance hall, the living room was kept relatively sober and symmetry was used to radiate pure comfort. The dining room and kitchen, on the other hand, radiate true retro-vibes. This contemporary interpretation of the 1950s may look daring, but it is certainly inspiring. Cristina Jorge de Carvalho also chose a striking wallpaper for several rooms. This creates a playful layering in the project, as we often see in the designer's work, and makes the spaces truly unique places that you won't get tired of quickly.
Unique spaces that you won't get tired of quickly
In addition to furniture and decorative items from renowned brands such as Cappellini, Modular Lighting, Veronese, Knoll, Carl Hansen & Son and some real vintage designs, we also see a lot of CJC's own designs in the rooms. The carpets also come mainly from the special Rug Collection of Cristina Jorge de Carvalho Studio.
Quinta Patiña House is another successful project of the Portuguese architecture and interior design studio. We hope to discover and share many more of their projects with our readers in the future! Photography by Francisco Almeida Dias
