touch of the unexpected

I was first drawn to this home due to it being location in Madrid, where we will be spending two days book ending our trip to Italy. Then I could not help but be drawn in my the amazing and incredibly unique textures that are layered throughout. I have truly never seen anything like these interior sliding screen doors....

...or sea fans applied to a mirror.

And yes I know that tile is common in kitchens, but floor to ceiling tile throughout the entire room--I think not.

It just goes to show that even the most unconventional idea can create lovely visual interest and elements. What is the most unique textural element you have seen used in interior design?

Hi Blair,
I´ve seen this house in the magazine and, although it seems, the kitchen is not tiled but wallpapered. In Spain is too common to tile the kitchen entirely; in fact, in my projects I try to change that because at the end it results boring (but easy to clean!)
I hope you enjoy Madrid!

Beautiful! Love the mirror and the sliding doors! It sometimes feels like we always see the same look over and over so it's neat to find rooms with unexpected touches :)
