Chilean illustrator Judy Kaufmann now calls Barcelona home. After experimenting in several styles of illustration and working in different design studios, she decided that freelancing from home was the way to go. The home she shares with French sculptor and boyfriend, Marc, is located in a modernist architecture neighborhood called Eixample in a building built in 1903. Both Judy and Marc are drawn to classic wood and craft-style objects, which they’ve been lucky enough to find on the street. It helps that Marc knows how to apply his skills to fixing up and treating every piece they find. You can see more of Judy’s home right here, and work from her here, here and on Etsy, and I just have to say that I think her famous guys series is the best ever! Thanks, Judy! — Anne
Image above: Our room. We have all kinds of small cotton animals hanging on the wall that we bought on a trip to Bretagne, France. On my side of the room, I have this green tree print from my Etsy shop.
Image above: I found this green dresser in a second-hand shop. The store was filled with old and unsalvageable furniture. When I saw it, I took it immediately. I bought the wood soldiers in Benares, India. The poster is a design from Portable Design Studio for a Chilean play.
Image above: This is our living room where we spend most of the time. The red chairs, the lamps and the table are from the street. This long table was used for gluing paper. The mask was made by Marc. He works with recycled furniture from the street. The sofa is from Ikea, and it’s perfect for weekend afternoon siestas.
Image above: At my desk, I have a color palette that helps me with prints and lots of different small illustrations, stamps and posters from different places and friends. The vase is a liquor bottle from Mallorca.
Image above: My collection of small cars. Since I can remember, I have been collecting small cars. I started this collection many years ago with my best friend in Chile. It’s a really happy collection that gives lots of color to the house.
Image above: Table in our room with two small portraits of us, a poster from Martin-Gropius-Bau Museum in Berlin and another mask made by Marc.
Image above: This is a very old skate that we found in the street.
Image above: The terrace — one of the best places to be. Barcelona has at least 10 months of sun, so we love having a terrace where we can eat, read and be. The print is from our good friends Chipojo, also from Barcelona, and the table is an old sewing table also from the street.
