I'm sure that many of you have heard of the late Portuguese interior designer Duarte Pinto Coelho. I'll be honest- I never had until I bought the June issue of Spanish AD. And I'm sorry, too, that this article was the first that I've read about Coelho because by the looks of these photos, I have really missed out on a lot!
Coelho died last year, and the contents of both his Madrid and Trujillo homes were auctioned off earlier this summer at Christie's. The photos featured here were taken at Coelho's Madrid home. I wish that I could tell you more about the article, but unfortunately I don't speak a lick of Spanish. But really, you don't need text to accompany these gorgeous photos. The home's beauty speaks for itself.
All photos from Spanish AD, June 2011, Manolo Yllera photographer.
