Juan Luis Medina, famous Spanish architect and designer of the successful pop-up store Madrid in Love, decorated his home in a way that might make most Boho Modernistas swoon.
Once an old shoe shop, Medina transformed his home into an eclectic haven that is both well styled and maintains the integrity of the original space.
With Madrid in Love, Medina showcases a gallery of vintage decorative objects in various industrial spaces around the capital city of Spain. Every three to four months a two-week sale is publicized that attracts the city’s most style-conscious.
The mixture of bringing vintage to industrial isn’t lost on Medina, who beautifully incorporates this aesthetic into his own home. Medina has traveled throughout Europe carefully collecting items to both sell and keep.
I can’t decide what I like most about Medina’s home. Every personal touch adds character and charm and evokes a certain feeling. I LOVE the chevron-patterned hardwoods, glamorous kitchen chandelier, Roman bust and glass coffee table… just to name a few.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s quote from Lord of the Rings hangs inside the living room: ‘Not all those who wander are lost.’
Too true, as shown by Medina who has used his travels to thoughtfully create a cohesive, spectacular place to live.
