Drama can sometimes be an understatement. Welcome to the over the top but carefully curated world of Barcelona based designer Maria Lladó. Queen of the vignette, lover of chairs, doyenne of the eclectic. The home as theatre or is that theatre set? Either way i love it. Just how I would live if I could.
I had to share these 2 beautiful homes I found on Nuevo Estilo - both are in tune to my architecture and interior design obsessions. This first one I adore - a rustic farmhouse in the country (located in the town of Sant Martí Vell, Girona) that is furnished with antiques mostly from the mid-late 90's. The juxtaposition of eras makes this home so eclectic and intriguing. (Details here)
It is really unfortunate that Barcelona is no where near Ottawa because I would LOVE to check out this restaurant in person (and maybe even try a burger while I'm there). Alex of Blanco Azabache Interiorismo thought we would like to share this latest project of his with you all. It is a burger joint called EL Quiosc. It is an old house in the center of the town of Mataró (Barcelona) that after abandoning the shoemaker who had his workshop there decided to rent my clients to transform into a gourmet burger, with a industrial retro aesthetics (4 rooms, entrance area + the childs playground). As an aficionado of all things industrial, I love what Alex has done with this space. Lots of rustic and industrial touches with a French and Spanish vibe make this a quirky yet fun and inviting restaurant. There are lots of elements I would love in my own home - from every bit of lighting and seating to the hanging terrariums and tile flooring (YES!).
Luis Puerta is an interior designer from Madrid, Spain. He seeks to create spaces that are serene, elegant and timeless. He seems very much influenced by French design, and uses mirrors in his spaces quite often. Take note because his mirror applications are pretty spectacular - such a great way to make a space appear much larger than it is.
