White Painted Italian Furniture

Designer Lorenzo Castillo's Madrid home was featured in the Elle Decor's April 2012 Issue, and it still has everyone talking. Lorenzo Castillo, a Spanish designer stumbles upon a 17th century building that romances his imaginations so much, ...that two days later, he buys the place and moves in. That was 10 years ago, and since then, he has moved into a bigger space in the same building, which was featured in Elle Decor magazine. His first apartment was sold, along with the collection of furniture and art which was used to renovate the 11,000-square-foot space downstairs apartment spread over two floors.

Elle Decor reveals that when the Spanish Civil War ended in 1939, the rooms of this home (which is now his) was used to store the city's theatrical costumers for the nearby Royal Opera House. Over the years the signature architectural detailsin the apartment were gone, sold off or stolen through the war.
