A home that was a hostel

This central Madrid apartment was an old hostel with 11 tiny rooms and look at it now! This gorgeous family home now boasts 3  bedrooms and plenty of natural light. The kitchen is probably my favorite part, light and rustic with pretty Anthro details and gorgeous open shelves and white furniture. LOVE.

  14. Like Jesse and Toni, the bookshelves did it for me, they are a work of art in and of themselves! The painting above the bed is magical and the master shower is divine!
