Carolina Herrera Baez


michael and i just arrived in spain, on our way to a really special friends wedding….so in route to here i started thinking about all things related to spain….this will be a theme this week for sure!

i’ve have always admired carolina herrera baez’s style and beauty, she lives in spain, she is married to a very handsome spanish bullfighter. she has a home in madrid and a country house in cáceres, spain.

carolina’s homes are super chic…there are some themes…she likes pink, and like me she loves blue and white, i even see a few stripes….she likes a trim, a floral print, a suzani, and a daybed…everything is beautiful and all looks comfortable….

we’ve only been in spain a day, but thus far, just like carolina’s world, all is beautiful!

in yesterday’s post/ see here on michael deperno, i mentioned being introduced to him by a few elle decor features, one from 2001, another in 2004….both of them being cottages in l.a.. not sure if it’s the same space redecorate or if they are separate homes…..which ever the case, i love them both and had saved these in my design file for years….

i love the mix of things, natural and beautiful, i think you will too…enjoy!!
