What stands out at first glance about this luxury home is its beautiful mouldings throughout the house that give it that elegant, classic, and exclusive touch that its owner wanted to give to the house. In addition to a hanging steam fireplace that divides the living room and dining room, where we also find a fully panelled open kitchen that invites diners to gather around.

Art and design are always present in our project. This time, we chose a work of art created by Roberta Lobeira, an oil artist known for her paintings for the Netflix series “La casa de las flores”.

Said author has left her mark on this luxury house, capturing with great colour a work of art representing Spanish and Mexican folk art.

A small hall, isolated from the rest of the house, covered with mirrors to provide spaciousness and a touch of modernity to give that touch of contrast with the rest of the more classic decoration. We searched that contrast the entrance of this beautiful apartment.
