Our featured hotel this week has a bit of an odd name, but boy, is it a beautiful space. It's called the Only You hotel, and it's located in Madrid – a city we've been dying to visit. We've spent time in Barcelona, one of our absolute favorite cities in the world (just as cosmopolitan as Paris but without the snobbishness), and we're pretty sure Madrid would rank high on our list should we visit. If we do, we'll be booking our time in the capital city at Only You. The images do it enough justice that we'd hop on over to Spain without even reading about the amenities.
The hotel, located in the heart of the capital, is in a completely refurbished palace dating back to the 19th century – yet the interiors are done in a contemporary, fashionable, warm style that plays with colonial colors and a Mediterranean touch. The interiors, managed by Barcelona's design study of Lazaro Rosa Violan, features many a tiny detail and hidden corner, each of which is more beautiful than the rest.
We DIE for this elevator bank! The gold gilded elevator with the Chinoserie-style tile surround..Mama mia, this is a beaut!
Every good designer knows tchotchkes in bookshelves make the space. We love the unique antiquities they've got in here – and we'd bet you can borrow those books.
A gorgeous, romantic bar that would be perfect for a drink after a long day of shopping. Then below, an airy, open dining space that looks as though it's part of a large courtyard. Indoor outdoor living at its best!
Meanwhile, the rooms are classic yet quirky. We love this oversized map of the city, especialy when paired with this chic, streamlined bathroom.
Each room at Only You is infused with it's own personality; we're partial to the one below, with its wooden beamed ceilings, gorgeous bookcase, and crisp white hotel sheets. And let's talk about that bathroom, above! Are we crazy to think that map opens closet doors?
Hellooo, moody black walls! We love!
Wouldn't you love to pour yourself a cocktail and cozy up to this fireplace after a day of sightseeing?
Giant mirrored windows hearken back to the building's palatial origins.
