Picture a perfect holiday in Madrid. You’ll take in the masterpieces at the Museo del Prado. You’ll stroll through the Plaza Mayor and the gardens of El Retiro. You’ll visit the Palacio Real and the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida. You’ll dine on tapas in La Latina.
And in this particular Spanish fantasy, you’ll make this slick industrial pad your temporary headquarters.
Designed by Marisa Gonzalez Llanos, the Madrid home blends the simplicity and practicality of industrial style with modern refinement and the latest trends. The space is awash in different textures, many of which appear raw and unfinished. Exposed concrete walls mix with a variety of reclaimed wood accent features – a wooden plank wall, rough-hewn wood tables, doors seemingly crafted from upcycled crate boxes.
In the middle of the living area, we find a plush, neutral-toned sofa and the familiar leather of an Eames chair. The dining room adheres strictly to the industrial aesthetic, with stark concrete walls and oversized pendant lights. The tanned dining chairs are a rare break from the home’s grey colour palette.
Another small burst of colour is found in a smaller breakfast nook, which features a serene purple wall and the apartment’s most concentrated example of mixed materials: a metal table and acryclic chairs with wooden legs. In another space, so many textures could be overwhelming, but here they never overpower you with unnecessary detail.
Minimal, masculine, and tranquil, this home is the perfect escape from Madrid city life.
