Modern Home Renovation in CubaWhen a house takes 7 years to renovate, it had better be worth the effort, and from the looks of it, American transplant Pamela Ruiz’s painstakingly renovated Havana villa is plenty worth it.

By allowing peeling walls, faded wallpaper and original ceramic floor tiles to reside alongside sleek Mid-Century Modern furniture, dazzling chandeliers, and large-scale contemporary art, Ruiz and Azquiles have created a rich and enviable tableau of past and present—and given us a window into what it’s like to have the best of both worlds.Modern House Renovated in CubaCuba Home Renovation Modern Renovation in Cuba Modern House Renovation in CubaCuba Modern Home RenovationCuba House Cotnemporary RenovationVia New York Times
