Spaces that inspire: a flat in the most bohemian Madrid

Many times in Decoesfera we go crazy with showing you floors from distant places when sometimes the most interesting spaces are around the corner. It is the case of bohemian-inspired floor that I bring you today, which is situated in Madrid.

We begin our tour of the room, which you have on these lines, where white color predominates and yellow The key pieces of the decoration of this space are the Eames rocking chair, the pouf of the same color and the sofa, in white, where the cushions have been used to give it personality. The unvarnished wooden tables give the set a casual style that I love and that is completed with a Union Jack tapestry (which you can see in the gallery).

The punk touch to this room is given, in addition to the flag that you can see well in the gallery and of the same word stamped on one of the cushions, the plastic bottles that are on the coffee table, of Moroccan inspiration. I have nothing against putting flowers in bottles but in my opinion, it would have worked the same if they had been placed in transparent or white vases.

There is no door that separates the living room from the kitchen but it does in vain. In the background we can see the table that serves as a dining room with a chair of each color. Notice how in this way they manage to break the monotony of white, combined with steel appliances, without recharging the room with accessories.

From the kitchen, I keep the Indian-inspired head they have in the niche although I am still deciding whether it is kitch or directly avant-garde. The rest of the decoration of this room is completed with potted plants or vases and bottles filled with semi-transparent liquid of yellow or pink color.

In my opinion, the worst of this kitchen is the lamp, quite typical for my taste no matter how much a Chinese pendant has been put on it. Luckily I know complete the lighting with several halogens Surely they facilitate food preparation tasks.

He Main bedroom It is the stay that I like the most. Bohemian-inspired like the rest of the house, it has its center in a large four-poster bed (although it is true that this is left over) and is surrounded by ancient objects, such as the dummy you have on the right or the precious body mirror I can't stop looking.

Along with the canopy-mosquito net, another of the things I don't like about this space are framed insects although I understand that there are those who can be attractive. Of course, the carpet at the foot of the bed and the bench in unvarnished wood seem great and I get the feeling that at any time they are going to talk to us about the adventures they lived in previous lives.

In short, this house has managed to combine pieces that look like antiques with more modern ones creating a bohemian and cozy space. Would you be encouraged to move to an apartment like this in Madrid?

Work spaces: up the color with Lolo Polos Artesanos

There are businesses that are perfect. For aesthetics, for having a funny and easily remembered slogan, and for being located where they have to be, in an environment that is natural and with an audience eager to connect with them. That is what happens with 'Lolo Polos Artesanos'. A curious and fun ice cream shop where they sell handmade fruit poles without dyes, preservatives or other artificial substances, famous already in Malasaña for the phrase 'Don't call me polo, call me Lolo'.
