Home Decor has kicked off this week and, as in each edition, since Decoesfera is Decoesfera, we will make an intensive discovering each of the spaces, the designers, the highlights and if you hurry me criticizing a little, which is also healthy.
We already talked about the choice of headquarters, in full Malasaña, which for me, Madrid to the bars is a success. A neighborhood that has been reinvented and with neighborhood help is beautiful. In the La Palma street 10 the building rises and in a space called "A sensory experience" we discover Silvia Trigueros. The prestigious interior designer returns to Casa Decor after two years away.
From the hand of the faucet firm, Axor, Silvia has devised the perfect bathroom. Axor (famous for her collaborations with designers such as Patricia Urquiola, among many others) she presents in Casa Decor 2015 a wonderful glass faucet, Starck v That has fascinated us. Since its glass body and open pipe allow us to enjoy the natural strength of water with more intensity, both its sound and power.
To know a little better at interior designer, we wanted to ask you some questions about its origins, its trajectory and its decorative preferences
Decoesfera: Hello, Silvia. Tell us a little. How do you discover your passion for interior design?
Silvia Trigueros: I started working carrying the my family's furniture store, little by little the furniture and decoration were hooking me and when it came time to look for my house I discovered that I was passionate about transforming spaces and I was also quite good. So I made the decision to improve my training studying Interior Architecture.
D. Tell us a little about your career
S.T. After 8 years at the helm of the family business and after finishing Interior Architecture, I set up my own studio with a partner from whom I finally separated. I have spent 8 years in the studio where I have done enough residential projects, a couple of hotels in Madrid and some project also in the field of offices and commercial premises.
D. For some time now, Casa Decor is better than ever. Has the dreaded crisis caused interior decorators to reinvent themselves?
S.T. I think many decorators have readjusted the way you workAt least I have. He interior design It doesn't have to be reserved for the luxury sector. We can help improve your home and your life to customers of all kinds, we must adjust to your needs. My greatest satisfaction is that the reform of my clients' house is a wonderful experience in which they do not suffer with the process and enjoy the result. After all, what's better than make a house to your liking?
D. We often hear about impersonal houses decorated by professionals. How do you avoid this?
S.T. I support that the house reflects the personality of the clients, not mine, they are the ones who will enjoy it and live it. That's why I try to know them well, their tastes, their needs, their customs. I review the pieces they have and want to keep and try to fit them into the new proposal giving coherence and unity with space. Sometimes customers find it hard to know what they like, but I make several proposals and they end up discovering what they like and deciding.
D. Fusion decoration or a single style?
S.T. Definitely fusion, although I am not of daring mergers or eclecticism. But contemporary pieces, with straight lines and lacquers, need to be combined with more handmade pieces, warm, that bring personality to the space and nod. And these pieces of contrast do not necessarily have to be antiques of much value, there are wonderful 20th-century furniture, such as Danish chairs from the 50s.
D. Now, a question I always ask decorators? Convince me to renew my house ...
S.T. We must renovate our house because we change, just like our needs and tastes. Having a comfortable home and to your liking brings you well-being and peace when you get home, something that we need and value a lot today. Fashions have changed a lot, now looking for houses in white range, very serene, with a neutral base that allows us to renew it with little effort and investment.
D. 1,2,3 of the decoration:
S.T. If you mean the most important thing to me, I would tell you first, the distribution, second the choice of materials and third the illumination. There are three things that we cannot fail because then we cannot change easily, and if this is not right the project does not work.
- A colour: He blue, combines perfectly with neutrals and does not tire, always elegant.
- A furniture: The container furniture or Cabinet as the Italians call it. Perfect in living room, dining room, entrance or bedroom, tremendously versatile
- A style: Contemporary, with a stroke of classic
- A national decorator: Lázaro Rosa Violán, to recover classic elements and mix them with mastery with other styles, their spaces are very personal.
- An international decorator Candy Candy, extreme elegance and luxury, perfection in every detail.
- A teacher: Miguel Angel, I love to travel to Italy and enjoy its works, I fell in love with the Renaissance on my first trip to Italy with the school.
- A work of art: The Bernini's Piazza Navona in Rome and its source of the 4 rivers. I am more of sculpture than of painting and this set seems exceptional to me.
- A material: If I can only keep one, it would be polymer moldings (in its Casa Decor space, the moldings of Orac Decor, which achieve the desired Zen effect), an incredible material with which to transform any space into a classic or contemporary style. But for me it is very difficult to stay with only one, I am passionate about materials, classics and new ones.
- A unique chair: The Mademoiselle by Philippe Starck, has a classic point despite its modernity and brings a chic touch to any dining room or desk.
- A textile reference: Dedar, a wonderful textile editor with wonderful colors, dreams and textures. (I don't know if you mean this)
- A wood: He Walnut, but as is its natural and matt color. We have spent years obscuring it and applying matt varnish, a crime, it is beautiful in its natural state
- Curtains, blinds or curtains ?: Roller blinds in different finishes without a doubt. They take up little space, are clean, let in more light and are also well accompanied by falls if space requires.
From here thank Silvia Trigueros your kindness and that you have received us in the middle of the maelstrom that involves participating in Home Decor. And we recommend that you go to visit this new edition, on Calle de la Palma, 10.
