When renowned Spanish interior designer Lorenzo Castillo found his current home, over 20 years ago, it was a neglected theater and costume warehouse. Originally a 17th century monastery, in the 18th century it had been transformed by the King’s architect, Ventura Rodríguez, into a majestic palace. Tag along for a behind the scenes visit with Susanna to see how Lorenzo was able to reinvent the large building into his home, studio and warehouse – a glorious representation of his many talents.
See why the drawing room inspired Lorenzo to buy the house.
Watch to see how Lorenzo is a master at incorporated art to its full maximal extent.
And how he combines classic elegance with bold pattern and color
You will learn how Lorenzo’s background as an art historian and antiques dealer enables him to meld many different historical periods and design influences to create such sophisticated and visually stimulating spaces.
Thank you Lorenzo for sharing your magnificent home! We’re inspired.
