Las 2 Mercedes are Mercedes Peralta and Mercedes Valdenebro, two Sevillanas settled in Madrid and one of the “seventeen studies that already mark the future of Interior Design in Spain” according to AD magazine.
Its marked style could be defined as delicate freshness, as they love to combine neutral and clean spaces with bold elements and upholstery, colors, textures, gold… As they say, its hallmark is based on “creating a neutral box where to add some color through special pieces “. As their latest projects we highlight the new One Shot hotel in Barcelona and the Flores de Alcachofa restaurant in Madrid: “We envisioned Flores de Alcachofa as a sophisticated dining room in the tropics. Bamboo ceilings with leafy ferns hanging from it, earthy stucco walls and a geometric stone mosaic set the stage for the chef’s Mediterranean-Latin fusion cuisine”.
