space: art meets tiles in Valencia

All that talk about art yesterday in the late Bunny Mellon's country home made me want to feature a space today with the focus on an art piece. This modern living room in Valencia is a David Lladró design. The red and white artwork that demands one attention is by Spanish artist Nanda Botella. The tiles on the floor are original tiles that were taken up and randomly placed as borders throughout the space (the other floor material is cement). Beautifully contrasting the painting and tiles is an oriental console table with two terracotta vases. Modern without feeling cold.

  1. Those tiles are so interesting, I like the random order. And I'm all for a bright coloured artwork when it comes to living-rooms or hallways. The contrast with the neutral tones and natural materials of the room in the background is beautiful.
