Inspired by Brazil’s lush rainforests, this beautiful flat in Barcelona’s Gràcia district feels like a jungle waiting to cocoon you in its green, tropical embrace. We love the living room’s exposed brick wall, forest-green palette and shelf covered in tumbling ferns, creating a feeling of total relaxation. Our favourite spot, however, is the conservatory-style balcony. Open up the main room’s French doors to unwind in this glass-enclosed oasis, where a sofa and hanging chair invite you to sip your morning coffee while taking in the hustle and bustle of the street below. With both earthy bedrooms boasting their own balconies too, you can wake up and greet the city first thing before heading to the desk space to catch up on work – if you must. When you’re ready to explore, you’ll find countless tapas bars, Catalan cafes and bohemian boutiques right outside your door, while Gaudí’s gorgeous Casa Milà is just a fifteen-minute walk away. After a day of fun and sightseeing, come back home to relax in your jungle haven while a record plays, then gather together around the tall kitchen table for a meal and a glass of wine.
Home truths: *This home faces a main street, so it might be a bit noisy at night
*You won’t need a car here as Barcelona has multiple ride-hailing opportunities and good public transport links
