Home Style, Colourful eclectic in Madrid

I just love the colourful elements displayed in the home of Spanish interior designer Isabel Lopez-Quesada in Madrid.  In its previous life, the building was a wax factory (I just can't see it!) and since Isabel got her hands on it, it's been cleaned up, brightened, relaid with limestone paving, and injected with a wonderful palette of bright and fun colour.

I absolutely love the entrance - the bold artwork hanging on the wall for starters and that colour of the lighting fixture, and of course that beautiful ottoman against the wall.  The living room is so inviting with those lovely french doors opening out to the patio and letting in all that natural light.  And every window is devoid of furnishings to allow the beautiful views from outside to be enjoyed.   In the bedroom, its the fuschia coloured chaise draped with that stunning suzani bedspread.  So many different elements, the deco glass covered bedside, the antique drawing desk, the modern rustic bed and the napoleonic stool in front of the fireplace.  You've got to follow the link and check out the bathroom in the dappled light also.

And throughout, the lovely long, narrow arrangements of Fuschia - nearly every room has fresh flowers on display... it's just the finishing touch to a wonderful palette on display.  

"A house, like a person, should blend traditions and modernity"... indeed its all in the mix that makes it interesting.

I could transform that patio into my summer office, sigh. How beautifully traditional elements and blended with modern details and vibrant colours. I love the glass vases, lamps and that side table right next to the bookcase in the living-room.

Absolutely gorgeous...what a dream home. I love everything about it. I can't wait to see the rest of her portfolio. There is something about Spanish style that really works in California! :) xx
