Madrid loft..

Hi lovelies. Just stumbled across this beautiful loft in Madrid, Spain. Don't you just love the use of  red/orange, white, black and natural wood!?!

Am also smitten with this large white piece of art. It relaxes me and I love the circular detail. I might just try to replicate something like this for my bare walls in our new place here in Sweden.. I promise to share the result if I achieve something reasonable, though it may take some time as our consignment is still making its way from Sydney to Stockholm by ship.

The black/white piece on top of the vintage luggage is also very nice, and I love the tension between it and the fun little desk lamp. Simple yet impactful.

And don't you love the follow through in the bike.. Colour co-ordination done by a pro.. :)

Have a great rest of the week my darlings. 
Lots of love from Sweden.

Lovely loft!!

I hope you're well and that things in Sweden are going smoothly. (Did you think for a moment about buying the bakery???)

Fran said...

Love it. So great..

Tina said...

Hej Snäckan!
Wow, gillar massor! Lampan på skrivbordert, de skönt slitna koffertena, zebraskinnet(favvo) och den abstrakta konsten.
Allt väl hoppas jag!? Har de små börjat skolan?
Slå en pling snart, ok? Är hemma här nu om du har tid/känner för det:), det regnar ute och jag och kisarna kurar inomhus! Eller skicka över ditt nummer så ringer jag dig när du har tid!
Massor med kramar!!!

Nuit said...

oh I am feeling this one!!!! such impeccable taste! I normally dislike lofts, well, dislike is not really the word, they are not my favesies because it's too much space for me, I like cozy and intimate rooms the most, however, this one, really stands out because the decorating is stunning, u really nailed it my friend (as usual actually).. lots of love from Mexico!!! (how are things with the move and all???) xoxo

I love white artworks. I found one a few years back and regret not buying it. Thanks for dropping by Beach Vintage. Hope to see you again.

It's quirky and stylish but what I like most is the rustic timber kissing chair - I have seen antique fine versions but this is something else. Have a lovely weekend Charlotta! Virginia x

Gorgeous loft. Also really loved the kitchen with the transparent floor looking into the wine cellar - fantastic! Although could be dangerously tempting :-)
