COLOR WATCH: SOPHISTICATED BLUE-GREY IN A EUROPEAN FLAT!

Living room in an apartment with a geometric print rug, dark blue-grey velvet sofa, two blue armchairs, a grey upholstered chair, and a round wood coffee table


Loving this Madrid apartment! Makes me want to move to Spain immediately.

The blue grey tones are perfect to me...soothing, sophisticated and sometimes even playful as in the striped grey and white kitchen walls.

My favorite room in this apartment is the living room - love the built-in bookshelf, the geometric print rug, and the color of that dark blue-grey velvet sofa!

Overall the flat's decor and furnishings are a mix of styles with modern, mid-Century modern and even a hint of Scandinavian coming into the mix (this word Scandinavian has come up now twice in a week...good friend AT who lives in London called me the other day...while we were on the phone she said, "You know I'm totally into Scandinavian crime novels these days. Particularly those from Norway and Sweden"...she was serious when she said this btw...who knew Scandinavian crime novels were page turners???...anyhooooo...)

Take a look!
