Chic in Madrid: Lorenzo Castillo
02 . 29 . 12
The “Lady Luxe” spread from yesterday’s post was shot in two places designed by Lorenzo Castillo. The Hotel Santo Mauro and his showroom/home in Madrid, Spain. I really need to learn Spanish so I can read more about this talented interior designer but from what I can gather, he is also an antiques dealer and this particular space serves as his home and showroom. Some of these photos are old so you can see from some changes from the fashion layout. For those lucky enough to understand Spanish, there is also a video from 2009 via Nuevo Estilo you can watch here. It’s actually worth watching even if you don’t know Spanish. I love the entire space but I think the brass trimmed bathroom is my absolute favorite room and will definitely be going in my personal inspiration file. I also think Lorenzo Castillo might just be my new favorite designer.
Ok, so my head is still spinning from all of this eye candy! I don’t know where to start. All I can say is, I love this post. These interiors are simply divine. Have a great rest of your week.
Smashing works of art! I adore the seemingly effortless blend of color, texture and pattern. excellent post Heather.

Oh my god. I had to start scrolling really fast at the end to keep myself from drooling. This space is incredible. I’m obsessing over that patio! And that bar room/eating area! How creative is that?! Contemplating taking the rest of the day off work to head to my nearest antique store!
Absolutely beautiful rooms. Pure luxury and elegance all over.
He is one of my favorite designers as well… He’s a genius! I am Spanish (Spaniard, actually, hehe), so if you EVER want to get something in particular translated just ask me, I’ll have no problem to do it! =) I’m sure you usually like to visit Nuevo Estilo and other magazines, so, just let me know.
So grown up,wonderful to see such an individual collection and style ,not following the pack,I think it’s fab.
What a delightfully unusual space! I found myself scrolling back and forth, back and forth as I just needed to see it again and again! You can’t see it all in one take!
I’ve never heard of this designer!!! This post is so incredibly gorgeous I will have to savor it over a few viewings!!!
The work is beyond chic!!!!
This is REAL decorating, as far as I’m concerned. There aren’t many talents like this around these days. Thank you!!!!!!
