Throughout the apartment, Hugo focused on two colors: red and green, referencing the rich color palettes of renowned Mexican designers such as painter Diego Rivera and architect Luis Barragán. Sections of the living room and bedroom walls are covered with an aluminum veneer, which Hugo designed to evoke the concept of travel with an atmosphere reminiscent of an old train or boat.

Hugo designed an L-shaped sofa with an emerald green velvet fabric by Pierre Frey in the living room. A coffee table by French designer Hélène de Saint Lager stands on a Moroccan rug near a 1980s Memphis-style marble table.

In the main living space, an open kitchen features rounded Macassar ebony cabinets with brass edges and Rainforest stone countertops. On the wall painted red between the kitchen and the bathroom, the Parisian designer added a small porthole in a nod to the French architect Charlotte Perriand.

Hugo also designed a velvet sofa for the living room with emerald green fabric by Pierre Frey and brass casing to match the kitchen cabinet details. Lacquered solid natural oak floors connect the kitchen and living room to the bedroom, which is painted lichen green by Farrow & Ball.

The bespoke bed and closet, designed by Hugo, are made of mahogany and natural rattan.
