Revisiting Lázaro Rosa-Violán

I just picked up the January/February 2011 issue of Australian Vogue Living (we're a month behind in the States) based on the photo above which also graces the cover.  It turned out it was part of the "home studio" of Barcelona based artist turned interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán.  I posted about this spectacular space last June but I think it's worth revisiting especially since it includes some new shots like the one above by photographer Richard Powers.  It's also one of those spaces that I don't think I could ever get bored by no matter how many times I viewed it.  The mix of styles and periods and artwork is perfection.  As are those herringbone floors.  

The bronze from from 1900 was once a ceiling decoration while the chandelier was designed by Paco Rabanne. 

The leather Chesterfield sofas are from Belgium and the coffee table the white leather chairs were custom dsigned by Contemporain Studio.

Stucco rosettes look like sculptures on Chinese console tables.

The leather and chrome chairs in the meeting area are from the 1960's and sit around a prototype table from Contemporain.  The upholstered "waiting canape" is from an old hotel in Marseilles. 

The artwork is by Lázaro Rosa-Violán.

I don't know many designers who would hang Chinese screens in a kitchen but they look amazing.

I want Lázaro Rosa-Violán to take me vintage shopping with him because he has a great eye for chairs.  These are Swedish office chairs from the 1960's.

Wish I had seen this view of the kitchen before my butler's pantry post. I'm very jealous of that storage space.

The wood paneling in the bathroom came from a textiles warehouse and headquarters.  The tub is by Philippe Starck and the stool Sempre. The entire place is the epitome of chic but if worked here, I would definitely hold every meeting out of doors.  Now, wasn't that worth looking at again?!

Hi Heather, I love this design group. Every element integrates with all others--there is a wholeness or completeness to their vision. Thanks, Mary

Dying for this space... especially the sunburst mirror and architectural rosette. said...

A lover of dark and navy blue and not typically a fan of purple but I'm loving this purple scheme of this decor!

Amazing photos - such interesting rooms! Loving the mirrors layered on the mantle. xx, Laura

In Good Taste

We love the strong shapes that are subtly placed throughout the rooms. They really add another element to the otherwise simple (but completely elegant) feel of the space. Geometric shapes can really add some extra "oomph" to a room-- you just have to know how to use them

Have a nice rest of the week.

The screens in the kitchen are perfect and I, too am jealous of the kitchen storage! Especially loving that wine storage and coveting the wine collection as well! ;)
