Diego Ladino

Interior designer Diego Ladino emailed us with some GORG photos of an apartment in Madrid, Spain that he designed. I LOVE the eclectic mix of styles - quirky and very cool. That would be the first 4 photos (before the jump). After the jump are photos I nabbed from his website of what appears to be a totally stunning restaurant. Talk about talent!

Temptation

Every so often an email lands in my inbox from perhaps the cruelest man I know. Chris from Welcome Beyond dangles dream designs in front of me and it is all I can do to stop myself from hocking everything I own, jumping a plane and escaping to the hand picked boutique vacation properties that litter the pages of their website. Chris has cruelly tempted me again with a Spanish beauty and oh the temptation! Alemanys 5 ...  "located in the core part of Girona's medieval quarter, within the scope of the first wall and overlooking the Plaça de Sant Domènec, is the property Alemanys 5, whose original building dates from the Sixteenth Century. Its recent restoration integrates old and new, where sober and clean lines look for the enjoyment of essential elements such as space, light, shadow, fire, stone, water or silence." Two apartments, "El Badiu" (The Veranda) and "El Jardí" (The Garden) designed by architect Anna Noguera. Thanks Chris for the link and double thanks for the extra photos. I'm packing as I type!

MINIM

Be still my beating heart! Minimalist but maximizing potential, simple yet complex, feminine, warm, over scaled yet intimate. Functional and covetable, pure and essential yet just a little (actually a lot) luxe. Modernist beauty by Barcelona based Elina Vila and Agnès Blanch of MINIM. New meets old in the most beautiful way. This is definitely a must see website.

Mauricio Fuertes

I wonder if photographers who shoot such absolutely amazing spaces (ie. yesterday's post) go home to their less than stellar dwellings and think "why do I live in this dump?". I think today's featured photographer might have had that thought on occasion. Mauricio Fuertes of Barcelona claims he's been working alot, in places that he dreams about. I'm fairly certain had I stepped into any of the spaces I'd be having dreams about them too, and wishing they were mine.

An apartment in Madrid

Jo isn't the only one having technical difficulties. My laptop, which I love as much as my many cats, is on the fritz with a toasted hard drive. I feel LOST without it. Luckily I have a very computer-savvy husband whom everyone and their dog goes to when things go wrong with anything computer related. He was thankfully able to copy my important files off but I am without some software I use on a daily basis, and it is very frustrating. I hope to get it back up and running soon so I won't be such a grump. In the meantime I found some photos I had stashed away of a gorgeous apartment in Madrid from the lovely Nuevo Estilo. (According to google translator I think it's a rental and the building was from the 50s-60s designed by architect Luis Gutiérrez Soto).
