This bright and cheerful apartment reflects the very essence of Home at Homes’ mission: to provide wellbeing and relaxation for our guests, ensuring that you enjoy not only the city you’re visiting, but also and above all, the home where you’ll be staying. Who wouldn’t wish to invite their friends to a special soirée in this centrally-located apartment? On the corner of Velázquez and Ortega y Gasset, in the very heart of the Barrio de Salamanca. Culture, tourism and the city’s most exquisite selection of leisure and shopping at your feet. A classy break indeed!
The apartment embodies and highlights some of the distinctive structural elements of the historicist building style of the early 20th century: visible pillars and radiators, high ceilings, moldings, and the large glass partition panels which afford character to the property and serve to separate the different areas. All brought about by interior decorator Natalia Parladé, a veritable specialist when it comes to transforming nondescript spaces into a haven for any bon viveur.
The apartment has been cleverly distributed to make the most of the available space and the light which flows freely through the whole property.
The main living area is marked by two industrial-looking vertical beams, with shabby-chic furniture and textiles softening the effect and affording a sense of warmth. The living space is separated into three distinct areas. Next to the windows, making good use of light, is a reading and TV area, equipped with a plush sofa, a sound and video system, and a trunk box standing in as a coffee table, around which are two upholstered easy chairs and vintage-style metal chairs.
Next to this, a stylish dining area for four, with a coarsely stained and painted wooden table and tolix-style chairs.
The innermost area, flanked by the metal beams, has a sofa which becomes a bed to act as an additional bedroom for one if required.
The cement tiles are a further feature of the living area, giving the impression of a carpet amidst the rest of the uniform tiling in the living area.
A large wall-to-ceiling panelled glass partition closes off and brings in light to the kitchen, which is simple and modern in design and equipped to the detail.
The sleeping area comprises two bedrooms, both decorated in the same chic, relaxed style as the rest of the house, using pastel shades of natural colours.
The master bedroom is equipped with twin beds, bedside tables and a large built-in wardrobe. It has its own en-suite bathroom with rainfall shower to afford maximum privacy.
The second bedroom has a comfortable single bed, and the sofa in the living area converts to a further single bed. There is also a second bathroom, complete with shower.
