A classical contemporary style… does it exist? This apartment in the capital of Spain is a good proof that it does. Interior designers Reyes Pérez Renovales and Marta Rafecas were delighted to find this apartment in a building by the renowned architect Gutiérrez Soto, so there was hardly any small reform.

The owner family communicated to the interior designers their wish to live in a practical and bright house, but with a sophisticated decoration that would give value to both the old pieces of family heritage and their interesting collection of contemporary art. In other words, a house with a classical contemporary style.

classical contemporary styleIn the living room, as in the whole house, neutrals dominate. The Blasco blue velvet sofa is a real eye-catcher. Beside it, another sofa also from Blasco upholstered in white linen. The patterned cushions or the red tops of the side tables, designed by the interior designers, balance the set in that search for a classicalcontemporary style.

In the entry hall, art by Balaguer from Marita Segovia Gallery in Madrid hangs above an antique sofa from a Belgian antique shop. The rug is from Zigler.

In the serene master suite, neutrals predominate with a touch of blue or yellow. Fabrics are very important in the decoration of the whole house. The classic linen, velvet and silk have been especially used. The upholstered headboard is a design by the interior designers. In contrast, two Tolomeo wall lights. Geometric patterned rug by Zigler. A Canogar painting hung above an antique small bench.
