Spanish Conquest Home

The Spanish Conquest home in Madrid of antiques dealer and interior designer Lorenzo Castillo featured in Elle Decor.

In the sitting room, a steel-and-ostrich-egg mirror hangs above a sofa upholstered in a 1960s David Hicks fabric; the Jacob Frères armchair is covered in a Rubelli velvet, and the cocktail table is from the ’70s. The artworks include paintings by Xavier Vilató, bottom left, and José María Yturralde, center, and a Josep Maria Subirachs engraving and Miguel Macaya painting, right.

Spanish Style Quirks

The beautiful Spanish home of Jamie Parlade in Carmona, featured in Nuevo Estilo. Amazing bright pops of color all over this house, the rafters in each room painted a different color of the rainbow, this quirky little element won my heart!

17th Century Spain Decor

Here we take a look at the Veronica Etro family home in the island of Ibiza. This is a wonderful old Spanish style home with gorgeous period pieces from the 17th Century Spain. White walls, exposed beams in a dark brown, highly ornate chairs, mirrors and light fittings.

A giant archway is original to the structure and is flanked by a sixth-century Indian bust from Gandhara.
