A penthouse in Madrid

This apartment in Madrid is the result of a deep transformation led by Spanish interior designer Pedro Rubio. I came across it on Nuevo Estilo and loved the mix of classic and modern elements, like the leather sofa and lucite chairs and also the beautiful textiles used, like the suzani in the bedroom and the perfect cushion in the living room.

  9. The quilt on the bed is such a great way to add color to the room- it's so easy and it really catches my eye!! plus, it would be so easy to switch out if I ever got tired of it.
