A dreamy Madrid home in gold and black

I am unequivocally, unquestionably, undeniably in love with this home. An absolute dream in shades of gold and black, it is located in Madrid and owned by model Laura Ponte. It was featured in Architectural Digest Spain back in 2009 and is apparently now for sale. If I had the zillion dollars she's asking for it, I would throw in another zillion and demand she leave all the furnishings...or at the very least those chandeliers in the dining room. SWOON!!!

Reader's home - Andrew's renovated minimalist flat in Madrid

In February a reader named Andrew sent over photos of his Devon Rex for Monday's Pets on Furniture, and the other day he send along some photos to his newly renovated flat in Madrid. A huge congrats to him as it is an incredibly drastic transformation that turned out beautifully, and was recently featured in AD Spain. I have to start with a few before photos. It turns out it had been home to squatters for 20 years before Andrew got his hands it. It had no working bathroom, lowered ceilings, ruined floor and walls....it was pretty hideous.

And look at it now!!!!! (Photos: Lupe Clement)

Old-world elegance meets vintage in Madrid

I am completely in love with this renovated 19th century apartment in Madrid. The original architectural details including exposed beams and brickwork alone have me about to pass out, let alone the fact that this space is furnished with a wonderful random assortment of antique/vintage pieces. That chandelier over the dining table is especially scrumptious. Ana Cabellos and Elisa Fernández of La Traviesa de Conde Duque worked some magic here. Via Nuevo Estilo.

Working on a Saturday

It's like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on the weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish. White and wood with pops of greenery and mint. The studio offices of interior designer Marta Castellano are so fresh and fun.
