Unofficial Madrileña and writer at vogue.es
Seville-born but having lived in Madrid for as long as she can remember, Christina takes life’s pleasures seriously – so much so that writing about the good life is her day job and her hobby, as the author of My Little Pleaschhures Blog
Cristina's Top Tips:
- Detana, for their vast selection of handmade lamps. The staff are great – they’ll not only help you with your selection, but if it’s a personalised order you’re after, they really know their stuff.
- I love the underground restaurant Camoatí, not only for its Italian/Argentine cuisine and decidedly homely menu but also for its relaxed and almost bohemian atmosphere. Make sure to order the entraña de ternera (beef entails).
- Rue Vintage 74 is an amazing online décor shop. However, on the first weekend of every month, they open their doors to the showroom.
