A family apartment decorated with Nordic style

Pablo Sarabia

“When we moved to this house two years ago, we were looking for wider spaces and surround ourselves with the nature. That's why we moved on the outskirts of Madrid ”. This is how Estela, the owner of this house, explains the reasons that led them to choose it. "We are 4 members in the family and we value having a small garden and the mountain nearby, to go for a walk," he adds. The apartment is distributed in a living room with terrace, the kitchen, two bathrooms -one of them integrated- and three bedrooms: the main one, the one of the girls and the one of guests. “We have many family and friends who live outside, and we love that they come to spend time with us. That's why we wanted that room to be comfortable for them, ”clarifies the owner.
