Isabel López-Quesada

If you haven't already visited Spanish interior designer Isabel López-Quesada's website, then I suggest you to do so immediately!  I just spent a solid hour admiring her work because it is filled is spaces that look collected rather than decorated with a theme.  Her portfolio is filled with gorgeous country estates but my favorite space by far is her own home which is featured in the April issue of Architectural Digest.  The moment I saw her bedroom, pictured above, I was instantly drawn to the vibrant violet chaise and eclectic mix of accessories.   Every room in Isabel's home is unique and perfectly balances antiques with modern elements -- something I strive to do in my own work.    Isabel has been decorating homes across Europe for over 20 years and in that time she has mastered the mix.   Take a look, there are some seriously major moments happening within the walls of this beautiful Madrid home...
  In the entrance hall a colorful Günther Förg painting mingles with an 18th century bench covered in black raffia. The neutral walls let the artwork and antiques take center stage. 
A modern Jose Davila photograph is displayed above an 18th century French demilune console.  I just love the colorful stemware on the table...anyone know who makes it?
One day I will have a closet big enough to house a chaise lounge and vanity!
You can check out the rest of Isabel's gorgeous home here.  Let me know what your think!
