TRAVEL | Madrid | Blogtour Spain

It has been a bit quiet on the blog this week and if you are following me on Instagram you might have seen I have been travelling through Spain. I was here on invitation of Red Reunión Empresas de Diseño – who introduced us to 9 of the over 40 brands they work with.

We went to Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid and I will be enjoying a few more days in Madrid and then go back to Barcelona and spent some days at the beach before heading back home and showing you more of our wonderful design trip. Enjoy the rest of your weekend…. I will be exploring more of Madrid

After sharing nearly a whole week together it was really weird to say good-bye again, and even weirder to stay ‘behind’ Luckily our Barcelona Blogger Elena left me some great places to see in Madrid for a start. And while heading of for a lunch I came across a small slow store …. that appeared to be a hairdresser and colour specialist.

Funny enough the owner who told me about their plans to sell candles and other home deco products over the next year, happened to know our candle and being a reader of my blog for years. This unexpected meeting was so much fun and a bit of a surprise for both of us… be sure to check them out when you are in Madrid: Con Calma

Do Design is a small concept store focusing on Scandinavian brands and local designers, they have a great interior and I will show some more of it soon: Do Design

Matadero is a real cool and industrial project and the home of a contemporary centre of creation, there are restaurants, cinema’s and exhibitions…. more pictures soon: Matadero

Three beautiful stores in a row with plants, flowers and cacti called ‘Margarita’ and ‘Cacto-Cacto’ at Calle Fernando VI 7-9 and if you are up for a great lunch check out Dray Martina, a cozy little restaurant with a great atmosphere: Dray Martina
