If you’re a fan of interiors, architecture and design then Madrid is absolutely where you should be right now. Here are three reasons to visit the Spanish capital in the next month…
1 // Until the 8th of March, you can view the The Art of Shoes at the beautiful Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas in collaboration with Vogue España. This curated collection showcases over 200 of Manolo Blahnik’s favorite shoes along with 80 original drawings. The designs on show span from the early 1970’s to modern day. I don’t know about you but I would so love to see these sketches in person.
2 // The Madrid Design Festival is also on the go. This annual festival turns Madrid into a showcase of international design for the month of February with exhibits and workshops held throughout the city. From architecture to graphic design, interior decoration and more.
3// Casa Decor has just opened it’s doors to reveal the latest trends in interior design, architecture, design and art. This exclusive event is being held in the Chamberí neighbourhood in a magnificent apartment building. For the five weeks of the exhibition, numerous decoration projects will be on display in the building. Each artist or company has rented and fitted out one of the rooms, turning the space into a showcase for their work. Decorators, interior designers, architects, designers and landscapers have the opportunity to show off their work in an exclusive context of state of the art and high-end decoration.
The exhibition looks AMAZING this year and I’ve just spent over an hour swooning over all the incredible spaces that have been created. I love the flamboyant, wild designs and the bold use of colour that seems to be prevalent. Below are a few favourites of mine but be sure to hop over here to take a peak into all the rooms and to discover more about the designers.
