Modern Mix in Madrid

09 . 09 . 15

I came across this Madrid apartment designed by Luis Puerta recently on Nueva Estilo. The Google translation of the Spanish article leaves something to be desired but from what I can make out, the plan was to allow the apartment to “breathe” with clean spaces and “less is better” aesthetic. I personally love the mix of contemporary […]

Nuevo Estilo never disappoints and this latest apartment they posted in Madrid is one of my new favorites. The space hadn’t been touched since the 1930’s so designer Miguel García de Valcárcel was able to open up the the rooms to let in more light.  He says of the project, “The important thing was to preserve the […]

Bust a Move

10 . 03 . 13

One thing that’s hard to find in the United States is a bust.  And I don’t mean the surgically enhanced kind. Visit LA and you will see a million.  I’m talking about marble busts and also heads and torsos.  They are more commonly found from European antiques dealers and occasionally the flea market.  The scarcity […]

Since I’ve been stuck on France for a bit, maybe it’s time to mix things up again.  I just found the home of Madrid interior designer Maria de la Osa online and love her eclectic style already.  She has a great eye for mixing different periods and styles and I look forward to seeing more of […]

Modern Mix in Madrid

03 . 19 . 13

I had to buy the December 2011 issue of Nuevo Estilo on Zinio to find out who designed this room.  Turns out it is antique dealer Alfonso Icaza who owns Bakelita in Madrid, Spain. In addition to fashion designers, I think antique dealers have the best homes.  They are so great at mixing pieces that […]

More to Love in Madrid

03 . 04 . 13

Every search on the internet ends in a trip down the rabbit hole but it usually turns out for the best.  That’s how I found this duplex apartment in Madrid designed by one of my favorite designers Lorenzo Castillo.  From what I can gather from my limited Spanish, it might be for his brother Santiago […]

Classic Meets Modern

03 . 01 . 13

I was trying to find who designed the bedroom in this apartment last week to no avail.  Then today, I stumbled upon it while looking for something else.  Don’t you just love when that happens? Turns out it is the Madrid apartment of Ramon Garcia Juardo and his partner Paco Pocovi who live and work together.  It […]

Marvelous in Madrid

07 . 15 . 12

I picked up an old issue of Nuevo Estilo magazine while I was in Soho yesterday due to this spread.  The home is the Madrid apartment of interior designer Raúl Martins. It’s filled with everything I love, shades of white and blue with pops of black, a mix of gilt and chrome, classical elements, and modern […]

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 […]

Model Chic in Madrid

12 . 27 . 10

Hope everyone had a great holiday and those of you on the East Coast are surviving the snow.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that my flight will take off on Tuesday but until then, I’m going to continue drooling over Naty Abascal’s Madrid home.  I came across it while I was flipping through Hola! magazine […]

If you haven’t already visited Spanish interior designer Isabel López-Quesada‘s website, then I encourage you to give yourself plenty of time once you do.  I could spend hours looking at all of her fabulous interiors and exteriors.  If Elle Decor hasn’t already featured her, I highly suggest they book the next flight to Madrid because […]

I was looking for this portrait of Patricia Herrera in her mother, Carolina Herrera’s red toile bedroom for a while and I finally found it on photographer Jonathan Becker‘s website. It’s actually the first photo, as it should be. It’s iconic and beautiful and makes me want to upholster something in toile. Looks like Carolina […]
