RESTORING CHARACTER TO A SPANISH APARTMENT

In a 19th century apartment in Madrid, interior designer Maria de la Osa restored original moldings and the original ceiling height to bring back the historic architecture of her flat. Using a distinctively Spanish mélange of old and new, she brought a unique eclectic spirit to the furnishings with a sprinkling of antiques and small doses of pattern. In the living room above, stacked trunks serve as a side table in front of the French doors that illuminate the room. Step inside this inviting home below!

Dining room with hidden door and library bookshelves on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

The library may be my favorite room, doubling as a library with hidden doors – even one in the bookcase leading to a guest room. The dining room library is a concept that I’ve always loved, ever since seeing Celia Tejada’s dining room in San Francisco.

I’m digging the warm layers in the master bedroom. It actually looks a bit more English in here, with the traditional wallpaper and mix of textiles in the bedding. I love the the touch of gold the mirror adds above the bed!
