EBONY & IVORY in Madrid

RAL 167 Madrid 19th c apt checkered floor fireplace chaise

Yet another stunning space in Spain. (And oh! I just booked a ticket!)

Yes I’m off to Spain for the first time in September — Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, who knows?! But if you’ve been reading this page for a while you might know, I’ve been admiring the Spaniards’ style for many years now. They seem to have an incomparable knack for creating a casually thrown-together look with formal pieces and formal architecture. Proof: this particular remodeled 19th-century space in Madrid by interior architects RÄL167 contains checkered stone tile floors, original moldings, black frame doors, and a mix of antique and contemporary accessories to round it out….a.k.a. heaven.
