Nacho Polo - A must-follow interior designer

The fun and amazing Nacho Polo has become one of my favourite interior designers. I got to know about Nacho Polo's work a few months ago and I fell in love with it.

Nacho Polo

Nacho Polo is an European interior designer that was born in Madrid. Before opening his own Studio in Miami in 2003, Nacho worked as a Creative and Project Director in a European design firm and in 2003.
Nacho Polo works only for private clients residences and he takes a limited colour palette, mostly white and black, and very Baroque style. Yes, you know me dear readers, I am a Baroque style lover.

His works have been already spotted in the major decoration magazines around the world, such as AD in Spain, Russia, France, Mexico, ELLE Decor, Vogue Spain, between others. Nacho polo also belongs to the team of designers for 'Esta Casa Era Una Ruina', the Antena 3 TV spanish edition of the famous American tv show 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' for ABC.

Nacho Polo talked to Maison Chaplin about his latest project, in Madrid shown in the pictures below:

An amazing mixing of XIX century details with modern pieces

Nacho Polo: "This house is an apartment dated of 19th century, located in Madrid, Spain in one of the nicest environments of the city, next to the Opera , the Royal Palace and his gardens called 'La Plaza de Oriente' 
which I reformed completely entire. The biggest challenge of this project was to recover the historical memory of the original apartment dating from the early nineteenth century."

"Recovering the original floors, carpentry, period moldings with ceiling heights of the apartment was the priority, then moving towards giving more natural light into the house recovering windows that had been covered and creating new and ample space to provide new and bright environments."

"Since there were numerous small rooms, it was decided to lower that amount in order to make room for much broader and useful spaces.

I was looking for a visual cleanliness. 
I like breaking the rules of the scales like furniture of big format, and I always look for experimental pieces and works of different contemporary art."

"In this house you can find Design pieces of Marcel Wanders like his wonderful 'carbon chair’, pieces of the collection 'where is the smoke' by Maarten Baas, also pieces of the architect Eero Koivisto, Piero Lissoni, Hans J.Vergner or ART of David Lachapelle.

I also wanted to mix the contemporary ART with antique pieces as a for example the chandeliers that I bought in Paris or London from XVIII and XIX centuries."

Bathrooms are my favourite room in a house, and Nacho Polo didn't change my mind with this one.
