In December, I went on a trip to Madrid to visit a friend and to celebrate my birthday – it was my sunniest birthday ever, 17°C on December 22nd! I didn’t really plan a lot in advance for this trip but I did write down some hotspots that I gathered from blogs and Instagram. Cup Of Couple’s Instagram is full of breakfast places, nice stores and more. Their pictures are breathtaking, be sure to check out their blog too!
The Hovse is a concept store that was only there for a month, I was lucky enough to be able to visit it. I bought a cute necklace for my mum and took a lot of pictures because the interior was so inspiring. The Hovse was located in a town house in Madrid’s residential area of Salamanca. Each room in the three-story building had a different function: there was a restaurant, a gin & vermouth bar, a space with design and decoration stuff, another had children’s clothes & toys, one with women’s clothing, … You get the picture. The fact that they sold pieces made by 80 different designers made it even better. I love discovering such pretty places on a city trip and really, Madrid is FULL of them.
