Around town last Wednesday on our art hunting afternoon, we visited our favorite  Gallery, Galleria Miquel Alzueta, that is currently exhibiting Japanese furniture and art  from the 1950s by these various deigners: Junzo Sakakura, Isamu Kenmochi, Kenzo Tangue, Sori Yanagui, Isamu Noguchi.

We also happened upon 4 new pieces by a local artist  Mirco Marchelli that we fell in love with, perfect colour scheme for our Beijing interior project, so we bought one, and met Mirco, who was milling around at the time,  which was lovely as we love his work and would have bought all the pieces from the whole exhibition if we could have..

Looking forward to tomorrows art afternoon around with the girls..

We are just back from a busy few days in Madrid where we  will be setting up our interior tours very soon. We were so inspired by all the wonderful interior shops in the city and found some beautiful pieces for our current interior decoration project. We  popped to the Antiques and Art Fair on Sunday where we made a few more purchases, including a beautiful shelving unit from the 1950′s! We also found a lovely 70′s print from the artist and sculptor Amadeo Gabino, and are now on the hunt for more!

As we are always looking out for inspiring spaces a friend sent me these pictures of American painter Cy Twomblys apartment in Rome , taken in 1966 for Vogue by  photographer P.Horst. An incredible space with simple tiles floors, classic sculptures scattered around the rooms, traditional furniture and his own artworks, love it!
