House tour: Italian Architect Teresa Sapey’s is bathed in light!

Teresa Sapey, an Italian architect and designer based in Madrid, has had a career designing for luxury clients spanning over 25 years. Chief among them are brands such as Bulgari, Citroen, and Disney, and she has been conferred awards by Architectural Digest, Wallpaper, and Elle to name a few.

The Spanish city she calls home is also where the majority of Teresa’s works are sited, including her very own home, Casa Teresa Sapey. Located in Los Jeronimos, one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in the capital, Teresa’s abode is a microcosm of her world. The walls, floors, and spaces are conceived as a white canvas upon which she can create her masterpieces. “I own a lot of family furniture and furniture designed by me. I also have a collection of contemporary art, as well as paintings. I wanted to bring them together inside a white container where I can display them, but at the same time, I wanted it to be a place where I can feel relaxed,” Teresa explains.

Teresa’s dining table and chairs are from Heirloom, complemented by a Murano ceiling lamp overhead.
