Cecilia Gómez, interior decoration

Interior decoration

When we talk about interior decoration, it is usual to think that we are referring exclusively to the house’s aesthetic. However, this goes far beyond. Beauty can be, for example, a synonym of order. It is also a way to plan the distribution of spaces, an aid to take a better advantage of them and to make the most of them. The interior atmosphere of our home is fundamental for human’s well-being .

Therefore, we can’t be satisfied just by the cover of decoration’s concept. If all elements that have been chosen are those that best suit you, are placed in a perfect location and are a part of a whole, it will be more likely that your house becomes more and more as your initial idea and begins to become the home of your dreams. And this is the philosophy of today’s post lead: the firm Cecilia Gómez.

Our participation in Salón Inmobiliario internacional de Madrid (SIMA) a few months ago, left us great experiences. The biggest Real Estate event celebrated in our country, brought together developers, builders, interior decoration shops, real estate agencies, credit institutions and all kinds of companies that have a direct contact with the industry.

During our stay there, we had the chance to know many brands from all sectors mentioned before. Due to the proximity to our stand, and so because of the great treatment that they gave to the exhibitors and visitors, and mainly for the quality of their materials and service, one of the best experiences that we took from SIMA was to meet Cecilia Gómez and her team.

So, on today’s post about interior decoration, we would like to dedicate a space to talk about them.

Cecilia Gómez is a family business headed by a mother and her daughter. Curiously, with the name of her daughter, which is Cecilia Gómez, the mother started in the world of interior decoration. Her current experience added to Cecilia’s, who grew up and learned from the best teacher —between projects of flats and refurbishments to be trained later as an interior’s architect— has made of the brand one of the leaders in the region of Madrid and also at national level.

From left to right Patricia Martín, Digital Marketing Manager of iLuxenio, Claudia (Cecilia Gómez Decoración assistant), Práxedes Iglesias (Business Manager of iLuxenio) and Cecilia Gómez (Business co- manager of Cecilia Gómez Decoración).

 Nowadays, they almost have 30 years of experience in the sector. Their projects throughout their career show that they have a stamp and a style that distinguishes them. This is about an open line that create modern environments and where the upholstery has a main role.

In its aim to satisfy their clients, they care about their specific needs. With a detailed knowledge of the market, the firm offers you the opportunity to achieve a perfect decoration, just as you imagined it. The decoration adapts to your personality and your daily habits. Their slogan “Turn your projects into reality”, couldn’t be closer to this idea.

They are specialized in interior decoration of all kind of spaces, ranging from flats to detached houses going through hotels and offices. Besides, they complete a hundred of works per year.

Another of their most remarkable activities is the home staging:

In this way, they are perfectly coordinated with developers to offer to the client the possibility to visit show flats completely decorated. Enjoy absolutely of a real staging is a plus when buying a home. And with Cecilia Gómez, you can even apply the design that you have seen before to our own house.

In relation to the materials they use, although they work with different elements, from national and international manufacturers, they don’t hide their preference by the accessories, the wallpapers and the fabrics.

One of the keys of success of Cecilia Gómez is the professional team that it has. It its composed not only by decorators but also by experts assemblers, cabinet makers, carpenters, furniture restorers, graphics specialists and even builders. Besides, they have their own workshops in upholstering and production. However, and depending on the characteristics of the different projects they made, they also collaborate with other companies of the construction industry, which provides a quality result, thanks to the integral development of the process.

Interior decoration

If your interest in interior decoration world has increased after visiting this post and checking the endless possibilities that Cecilia Gómez offers, we encourage you to visit her. You can find them at Plaza de la Iglesia 2, local 10, in Torrelodones (Madrid).

Elisabetta Franchi has done another big step forward in Spain with the inauguration of its new boutique in Puerto Banús, in the Costa del Sol. The new opening has meant one more confirmation of this zone’s expansion.

Besides, we can say that the new Elisabetta Franchi collection involves not only Spanish clients who live in Marbella, but also tourists and lots of celebrities. All this celebrities choose using the creations of this Italian brand to go to many fashion events which are significant for the social media.

Ochre colour is the main player of its design and Elisabetta’s has selected the 70’s because of the power of the feminist movement of those years. On the other hand, this Italian firm designs don’t use materials of animal origin, and we know about the high respect of Elisabetta for the animals. A lot of celebrities have opted for its creations.  Everything started in an artisan workshop in Bolonia, in 1996. Its work has been recognized on all red carpets right across Spain.

Do you know where to buy the best diamonds?

Diamonds

Diamond is the jewelry piece par excellence, a whim that only few are able to resist. How many times have you stared at its beauty in shop windows? But when you have to decide what diamonds you are going to buy, you can’t get along with just anything. These jewels are going to be with you forever and you shouldn’t purchase them hastily.

Before leaving you the list with the best places to buy diamonds, we can’t miss the opportunity to offer you a few tips that should be taken into account before make the decision.  Pay attention!

Diamond Cut: The diamond cut is the most important element to consider when buying a diamond. Depending on the size of the piece, its sparkle will be greater or lesser. Besides, a small diamond may appear dull, so we recommend you always to choose the biggest diamond cut for your budget allowance.

Diamond color: Maybe you have never thought about the importance of diamond color, because actually they are colorless. But this is exactly the key. The less noticeable a diamond is the more qualified they’ll be. If we notice a yellowish tone, it would be better to ask for a different piece.

Diamond Clarity: This refers to its purity, its imperfections on the surface and internally too. This is the least important factor when choosing a diamond, as usually, we don’t appreciate these superfluous and internal mistakes to the naked eye because they are microscopic. Albeit, we should take these mistakes into account too.

Diamond Carat Weight: This may be the best known feature of a diamond. Sometimes we confused it with its size but, actually, when we speak of carats we refer to its weight. In any case, both are related and we can’t buy a good diamond without keeping this in mind. For example, a larger carat diamond with a poor size may look smaller than a smaller diamond which weight is greater.

In addition to these characteristics that make up the 4 C of a diamond (cut, color, clarity and carat weight) it is necessary to keep also in mind the form and know if it has a certificate from a gemological institute.

Once we keep all these tips in mind, we can go to the best places to buy diamonds:

Graff Diamonds

This is, possibly, one of the most important diamond firms in the world.  The English Laurence Graff  founded it in 1960 and since that date it has never decreased in terms of quality and excellence. It’s especially famous for having rare and beautiful diamonds (and even new discoveries of great value). Among its diamonds stand out: the Wittelsbach-Graff, the Pink Graff, the Delaire Sunrise, the Lesotho Promise, the Graff Sweethearts, the Perfection and the Graff Constellation.

Diamonds

Harry Winston:

The founder of this well-known New York firm is considered one of the most prestigious jewelers in the world and even he is called “the king of diamonds”. He started working at his father’s workshop until he finally opened his own jewelry store in 1932. His innovative, elegant and timeless designs always make these diamonds to be fashionable.

Diamonds

Cartier:

Although we also know it to be a watch factory, their diamonds also possess great quality. Louis-François Cartier founded it in 1847, even before the previous ones. His pieces are characterized by having their own personality, being excellent, delicate and unique. It is one of the firms par excellence of celebrities and royalty and they are known as “the jewelers of the kings”. One of its most renowned jewels is the “Panther of Cartier”, which is usually a panther-shaped brooch covered with diamonds and others jewels and metals.

Diamonds

Tiffany & Co:

Nowadays, everyone knows the name like this but it wasn’t the primitive one. This New York jewelry, opened for the first time in 1837 with the name of stationery and fancy goods emporium. Now with the name of Tiffany & Co. Currently it is, almost certainly, the most famous diamonds shop. In front of its shop windows Holly Golightly, the character of the legendary Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, used to have breakfast. This is because it’s worth to contemplate its jewels. During its history the firm has been concerned with diamonds as a main piece in its works and, as pioneers in Art Nouveau, they have always opted for avant-garde designs. Among their pieces, Diamonds for engagement rings are the most prominent.

Diamonds

Amberes, the city of diamonds:

In addition to these luxury brands, if you are a true lover of diamonds, you should visit at least once, the biggest diamond shopping mall in the world. It is located in the Belgian city of Amberes. The diamond district has only four streets (Pelikaanstraat, Schupstraat, Hoveniers and Rijfstraat) but it brings together many merchants who even offer tours to show how their job works.

The best rated watch brands

Watch brands
The use of watches started at the beginning of the 19th century. The watch brands began to work at Swiss manufacturing plants and they made the first wristwatches for female audience.For men’s world, the trend was set on pocket watches. And that’s why even today men’s shirts  still have a pocket on the left side at chest height.

The equal preference for watches from both genders began to settle during the I World War. Commanders started to expand its use due to the comfort that supposed just the simply gesture of looking at the wrist.

Nowadays, those times are far behind. Watches have been adding features beyond telling the time. These include working as a fashion and luxury complement. And watch brands know it.

If we think about it, it is more than likely that each of us has more than a watch in our stock. We use some of them for our daily routine, others only for practicing sport, others for a special event and others for significant dates.

Over the past 10 years the average expenditure is three times higher than before. And on average, each person has at least 3 watches. Watch brands are actually selling personal branding. They give us their style and they lend us the values with which we are going to be indentified when someone sees our watch. Besides, they describe us with just looking at our wrist.

Watch brands

He also shows in his videos tips for watches maintenance, events that he attends and trips around the world of watchmaking. He has almost 13.000 subscribers in his channel.

The second is Santiago Tejedor. Santiago is the creator and the person behind the blog that is the benchmark in Spanish watchmaking: ‘Horas y minutos’. He dedicates the channel almost fully to analyze the latest watches of the market weekly. And to the optimization of their features too. His videos are very well segmented: women’s watches, informal watches, submersible watches, suit up watches, chronographs, etc

Now, let’s give you the list of best rated watch brands by users:
