Today’s House Tour blog post is courtesy of my personal stand-by for amazing houses: Nuevo Estilo.
Look at that view! Located in Madrid, and designed by Mikel Irastorza, this home is literally the perfect mix of neo-classical, mid-century modern and contemporary. Combine that with a beautiful location, mountain views, some great light fixtures, and well… “I want to go to there.”
The resident, Alfonso de Icaza is also an avid collector, so while there’s a lot stuff, it’s not bordering on ‘Hoarders’ territory, if you know what I mean. Take a look at this gorgeous living room for instance. There are quite a few pieces in here – ceramics, vases, display pieces — but it’s not too much.
Another shot reveals a pair of breige (brown beige) sofas, a gray rug, gray tables and a pair of Jens Risom Lounge Chairs.
I really like the dining room too. It’s a modern glass table with French neo-classical dining chairs and modular wood shelving units that act as a room divider. The color palette of gray and silver, against the wood paneled floors looks really fresh here. Those cool ceiling lamps are by Aqua Creations.
Homes like these always have impossibly fancy kitchens.
Despite the wealth of grey, silver and breige, they’re certainly not afraid of color, or prints for that matter, as they’ve saved all that goodness for the bedroom.
Outside the bedroom is more terrace with gorgeous lounge chairs by Patricia Urquiola Kettal, and endless glasses of wine (one can hope).
This house appeared in the March 2012 issue of Nuevo Estilo.
So what do you think of this house? It’s perfect right?
