interior design: the right touches

First I would like to wish all the Americans out there a Happy Thanksgiving. I wouldn't mind spending the day preparing for a feast. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Remember my hallway headache post from last week? The above hallway look is my latest crush. I have been admiring that photo since yesterday. I found this renovated duplex in Madrid while browsing the Nuevo Estilo website. A console table with contemporary art and books ... I'm sold. This is the look I need for my hallway; this is what I want to greet people when the front door is opened. For those interested, the sculpture on the table is by Pinuccio Sciola and the photograph by Ruben Tortosa.

I had to include the bright dining area with its clean lines. That room, just like the hallway, has all the right touches: a Le Corbusier table, lighting designed by Elio Martinelli and the wall decorated with a piece by Toof, a French artist.

Design perfection!

  1. these are great. I'm often more interested in the art than the furniture these days. both of your photos are great for that :)

  2. Yes, that would work just fine for the hallway. Art, books, flowers: perfect!

  3. Love that first image! And I would also like to celebrate thanksgiving, I think it's a great concept!
    Like your blog! Please stop by mine if you like.

  4. Oh yes, the first image is lovely, a look I can absolutely identify with. xo

  5. Thank you for your Thanksgiving wishes, Lisa! It would be wonderful if it's an international holiday one day.

    But, oh, you remind me that my entry needs attention, too. Maybe a winter project.

    Have a beautiful weekend! xo

  6. Love the first image- that hall table with its detailed turned legs and the books and the coral! Just love it... pity it won't fit in my hallway! :)

  7. I love that hallway setting too, it's so perfectly put together! Hope you have a wonderful weekend Lisa!x

  8. I love how simple and yet super chic that first hallways is. The blue vase with those pink flowers add the perfect amount of colour and I absolutely love that table xx
