CASA DECOR opening!

Casa Decor, the great annual decoration event in Spain has opened its doors yesterday in Francisco de Rojas number 2 until March, 25th.

HALL by EleRoom 62 with painting from Pictoclub (Art on-line gallery)

This year they celebrate 53 years of this original concept where they choose a singular building in Madrid and during a month, the best Spanish decorators show their proposals for all rooms of the house.

 I have loved it as usual , my favourite room was decorated by Nuria Alia and reminded me fondly to LA or Miami.

Imagine waking up in the cheerful room by Nuria Alia

I was also impressed by several of the paintings on display and learned that this year they have made a special emphasis on art because of ArcoMadrid who will be presented next 21 of February.

I recommend that you take a look at Pictoclub paintings in various rooms of the house, such as the Lady of the Ermine in the Hall of Ele Room 62 or in Marta Zarzalejos Chimney room.

Pictoclub is an on-line art gallery that has very different works characterized by the fact that the authors do not sign the works and therefore the cost is reduced

After visiting the house, you can also enjoy the gastronomic offer of the chef de la Cabra named Javier Aranda, who has opened a temporary restaurant inside.

Beker6 a Good option for any Occasion!

A new restaurant in Madrid and a very good one! Beker6. My dear friend Alejandra Ansón took me there. As the best madrilian eat-girl, I knew that every time she takes me to a restaurant, there are high probabilities of loving the place. This time, that was indeed what happened!

Il Tavolo Verde, Organic Café and Antique Market

Big glass windows, lovely antic furniture, organic food and a pleasant atmosphere close to the Retiro: I am talking about Il Tavolo Verde, (which in italian stands for the gaming table). The perfect place to go to by yourself for a relaxing lunch or tea time with a book. I sometimes feel that in Madrid, there are not enough places to go to on your own when you find yourself in a quiet mood.

Christmas Pop-up store The Hovse: the place to be and buy!


Festive season fever has arrived in Madrid and despite the fact that we still have 24 days until Christmas; I am not enthusiastic about the stressful consumer obsession that abounds this time of year. For this reason, I declare my deepest love to the best Christmas pop-up store in Madrid: #thehovse!!

Casa Decor 2013 - A Yearly Appointment (we cannot miss)

Another year Casa Decor opens its doors in Madrid!! This time more challenging than ever. Designers need to transform a very 60's circular shaped office building, former british embassy, into residential spaces. Conceived as a diplomatic complex, the building is self-contained with its own system of security, electrical and water systems. And a very difficult layout. A real challenge and an extraordinary outcome! worth the visit!

Yarn Bombing - knitting Madrid

YARN BOMBING!! Sounds very aggressive but in fact it is a very quiet and decorative activity... as you know from past posts, My little Madrid started some knitting lessons recently... and enquiring a bit about this new passion, I discovered that around the world , many passionate about Knitting gather in open spaces to redecorate their cities. This phenomenon is called Yarn Bombing.
Last meeting in Madrid was on Saturday June 9th at Plaza Dos de Mayo. There I went armed with my knitting tools. At the beginning I couldn’t spot the group but then I found a knitted tree! That was the sign!!

Casa Decor Madrid 2012

casa decor 2012

Casa Decor is a yearly appointment I cannot miss in Madrid. I enjoy very much to see how different decorators interpret a raw space and transform it to become: cozy, modern, minimal, baroque, country, etc…so varied! Getting from one room to another mutates a universe of taste and aesthetics.
I always get lots of practical ideas for my own house; some very cheap and easy that I can implement right away and some that will enlarge my wish list...
