Castilian Character

If you have wound your way through the maze-like cobbled streets of the ancient Spanish city of Toledo, to the top of the tallest hill, you might have unknowingly passed this apartment. Sprawling across the top floor of a medieval building, it is an oasis that offers breezy respite from the Mediterranean heat. When decorating the space, it was important to embrace the grand architecture of the property. Cool stone floors, high ceilings and large windows create an airy feel that lends itself perfectly to the climate, and the ornate carved doors are striking features all by themselves. The apartment is testament to the fact that classic and modern design can live in perfect harmony, as the overall look is one of cohesion with clever use of color.
