IKEA has done it again! It has reinvented its model! The company has decided to combine the big outskirt warehouse with the traditional intimate downtown little shop. In Madrid the chosen location couldn’t be more typical and central: El Rastro. We all love el Rastro, its bargaining spirit, the special and unique pieces you can find there… How can IKEA, so modern, so Nordic, so clean, combine with it?

Last weekend we had an amazing day showing off our favourite places in the city, mainly Barrio de Salamanca to a selective group of 11 french luxury tour- operators. They were all invited by Madrid Destino, together with the Oficina de Turismo Española in Paris, Air Europa and The Leading Hotels of the World wanting to explore and promote Madrid in their travel plans.
The town hall’s Tourism Department contacted therealthing.es a Spanish travel agency that focuses on luxury experiences and the Spanish culture in order to get the best from Madrid. We were very grateful to them, when they contacted us for organizing a “My Little Madrid morning”. In this event, the mission was to show the tour-operators, on a Sunday, the gastro and shopping side of barrio de Salamanca.

Walking around Calle Mayor you get, nowadays, a sad feeling. Many shops are closing because of the expiry of the old law which allowed them to have a low rent. Most of those venues are traditional and popular businesses. One of them is Bisutería Otero. It was opened in 1905 and will definitely close at the end of March.

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!

There is a delicatessen in Madrid that all seafood lovers should definitely visit: La Conservera by Frinsa. It is a great place for tin can shopping, and despite the fact that we sometimes consider canned food less interesting than fresh food, I have to say that the quality of products inside Frinsa’s cans is amazing! a wonderful marine breeze for your next menu!

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.

Walking through Salamanca district, a little bench outside a shop made me look through their window. Very elegant leather items were nicely displayed, the name made me think of Argentina: La Portegna. And surprise! it is a Spanish brand 100% made in Spain.

We were invited by Teresa Palazuelo to her Atelier. The occasion was the presentation of her line TPKids, First Communion outfits. I have to say that I liked many things. First, the place: a traditional atelier, with large tables, beautiful fabrics and seamstresses delighted with their diligent work.

We are big fans of the fantastic bookstore La Central in Callao! We consider it much more than a bookstore for many reasons. Firstly, they have more than 80 000 book references in several languages and many different sections that avoid the typical collection of best sellers you find elsewhere. It is a library within a 19th century palace. If you feel hungry or want to take a rest, you can also try their great “Bistro” with very tasty food options for breakfast, lunch or tea time. You can even stay for drinks at night in their bar, "el Garito" , where many events and book presentations take place.

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!
