Nacho Polo’s Private House

Nacho Polo has fashioned his own language for starkly white. He’s added a bit of drama to white while respecting its formal purity. He used white to create glowing brightness and accentuate the essence of his Nineteenth Century apartment, next to the Royal Palace Opera in Madrid.

Madrid-born and Miami-based designer and architect Nacho Polo’s apartment retains a classic mood, yet indulges minimalist cleanliness. “I could not live without a notebook with blank pages and a pencil to draw,” he claims. In a sense, he has treated his apartment as a white canvas, dripping sensual accents of black paint and classic elements of crown moldings and carpentry.

His collection of artless white frames is experimental drama. A type of highly colored minimalism?
