The Chamberi residential area in Madrid is full of beautiful townhouses. Fans of culture and architecture will always find something to their liking here including the Sorolla Museum which is housed in a unique 19th-century building. However, today we want to take our readers to another unique building where Spanish Estudio Morgan embraced the architectural wealth of the property and combined it with contemporary design to create something truly timeless.
Estudio Morgan was founded in 2017 by Laura Montero and Marina Reyero. In their interior designs, they’re always looking for the perfect blend of functionality, beauty and timelessness. The designer duo are very passionate about their work and highly motivated to find a solution that perfectly suits the location, the building and the client in every project. An important aspect of Laura and Marina's design philosophy is 'respecting the essence of the spaces and the nobility of the materials’.

Let's take a closer look at a recent project by Estudio Morgan where the architectural wealth of the property (plasterwork moulding, original wooden floors) has been embraced and highlighted by pairing them with contemporary design pieces. ‘The plan was to make new elements look as if they had been there from day one and to showcase the architectural features,’ explains the designers. In a culturally vibrant part of the Spanish capital Madrid, the apartment is a perfect reflection of its surroundings and its owners. There’s a stylish and inspiring balance throughout the house. Impressively, the designer duo behind Estudio Morgan created a home that’s intimate but nevertheless capable of receiving and entertaining guests for the owner couple and their five children and growing number of grandchildren.
The designer duo behind the Madrid studio brings history and modernity together.
One of the ways in which this was made possible was by linking different rooms together. Some of the doors were even replaced by glass, creating a greater sense of spaciousness further enhanced by the completely white walls and ceilings. The color palette is neutral overall but complemented by colourful accents in the decor, artwork and furniture upholstry.
Despite the many eye-catchers in the interior, the whole is balanced. Much of the furniture and decor are either custom-made creations by Estudio Morgan or vintage pieces that were found, for example, at the design shop Rue Vintage 74 in Madrid. This is undoubtedly a pleasant place to live and share with friends and family! Images courtesy of Estudio Morgan
