Urban Living: Barcelona

Curated by Veronnique Lievre

The cosmopolitan Catalonian capital is celebrated for its free-spirited style, eye-catching architecture and unlimited creativity. We’ve discovered these unique apartments lining its labyrinthine streets—locations as one-of-a-kind as the city’s well-loved landmarks.


Historic Art Nouveau styling meets modern minimalism in this elegant fourth floor perch. Soak up abundant sunlight in the bay window seating area, and watch the bustle below, snaking along one of Barcelona’s finest boulevards.


You’ll toast your good fortune as you settle into this secluded, boho retreat for-two. Inside, your cozy urban nest awaits, complete with colorful furnishings crafted by local artisans that give the space its hip, creative feel.


This first floor oasis opens onto a serene, plant-lined interior courtyard, while inside the vibe is all 1970s-inspired glamour with a side of gilt. Retro furnishings, clean lines, and an earth-toned palette make for a swanky pad that’s as inviting indoors as it is out.


A breathtaking arched window and 12-foot high ceilings elevate this apartment, which boasts views for, literally, miles! In fact, this dazzling, light-filled penthouse is all about windows. A trio of glass doors line an indoor sunroom, and nearly every living room wall is hung with oversized panes framing the city beyond.


Ultra modern angles and sleek black and white finishes characterize this contemporary, 8th-floor penthouse. Inventive retractable walls allow for an effortless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces, letting you transform and expand the home to fit the moment.


Uncluttered, upcycled eco-design blends with early 20th-century modernism in these thoughtfully updated apartments. Handcrafted renovations like recycled bathroom fittings and locally retooled furnishings meld with original tiled floors and etched glass. Beds are 100% natural, and cleaning products non-toxic.


Old world Barcelona gets a modern loft makeover in this dramatic apartment. Velvety, matte-black exposed bricks offset the traditional wood-framed bay windows, and the seductive gourmet kitchen and dining area encourage entertaining.
