Lalabeyou - Buy or Create your Own Jewelry!



I made a nice discovery while walking the other day through Belen Street, doing some window shopping. At first, I was amazed to see many drawings displayed with original jewelry. I was not sure whether it was a shop or a gallery. A smiley lady inside informed me it was both, and also a jewel atelier: Contemporary Jewelry Galery Lalabeyou!

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!

Pop Up Christmas Shopping in Madrid - The Appartment & Madrid in Love

 It’s late for Santa but still in time for the Three Wise Men (los Reyes Magos), which is the real tradition in Spain for Christmas presents.

I have been actively searching the perfect gift and I am ready to recommend two singular Pop-Up Stores: The Apartment (6 December – 6 January) and Madrid in Love.

La Comercial - Nice Shopping for Christmas Presents

bustier dress by Cristina Ponce de Leon
Look what you can do with your cheeseburger wrappings!!!

La Comercial de Villanueva is an interesting space full of imagination. Carefully selected objects for women, mothers and their daughters; clothes, accessories, books, candles, paintings, ceramic, furniture and much more... Besides its own brand, Casiopea, La Comercial offers national and foreign brands such as NIU, Les Petits Hauts de Paris and Bella Jones.

And the most interesting thing is the opportunity La Comercial provides to young designers and artists who show a promising talent. Two awesome and striking works by artist Cristina Ponce de León are shown at present. One is a bustier dress made out of cheeseburger wrappings and the other a dress made out of wood clothespins.

It deserves a visit, either for christmas shopping or just to admire the work of Cristina Ponce de León.

Patch - Menswear

patch menswear


Patch is a new menswear brand 100% Made in Spain, recently opened in Madrid in a street that I like very much, quiet and calm but very elegant: Blanca de Navarra 3.  In successive posts I will be reporting other interesting shops worth to be mentioned in that same street. You can say Patch has an English flavour but also traditionally Italian and American east coast. Nice special colours and unique elegant cuts. Bomber jackets, blazers in corduroy with original lining, gabardine pants or plaid shirts are examples of the wide range of products and accessories you can find there. Scott Schuman, from "the Sartorialist" recommends it!!!!!!

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...
