Discover the vibrant Casa Nido in Madrid, Spain, where Yeyé Estudio‘s modernist design breathes life into an apartment through bold colors, local crafts, and sustainable materials.

About Casa Nido
From the outset, our clients made their vision clear: they yearned for a home that unmistakably captures the essence of Spain. Their affinity for vibrant colors, unique materials, and local craftsmanship guided our material selection, setting the stage for a home drenched in bold hues.
Designing with Color
We immediately embraced navy blue for the master bedroom’s headboard and the adjoining suite bathroom, infusing the spaces with depth and tranquility. Meanwhile, a softer aqua green brightens the second bathroom, enhancing its openness and light. The living room’s burgundy tiling introduces a dramatic flair, creating inviting niches and shelves. The kitchen echoes this palette, featuring oak wood with golden accents, a Rosso Lepanto marble countertop, and a matching island, all complemented by a tri-color hydraulic tile design.
Embracing Local Craftsmanship and Sustainability
In our commitment to sustainability and local craftsmanship, we revitalized the original checkerboard flooring of pine and oak. Valencia and Madrid proudly contribute the tiling and hydraulic tiles, underscoring our dedication to Spanish artisanal resources and eco-friendly practices.
Yellow walls and ceilings, paired with matching glass doors, flood the hallway with light, making it appear more inviting. This choice not only brightens but also visually contracts the space, adding a warm, welcoming touch.
Functionality remains paramount throughout the home. We equipped every room with floor-to-ceiling storage, cleverly concealed behind mirrored or color-coordinated sliding doors, blending practicality with aesthetic appeal seamlessly.
This transformation showcases our holistic approach to design, where every choice reflects a harmonious balance between beauty, practicality, and environmental consciousness.
