The eleventh #HouseOfMolteni episode focuses on Madrid, Spain, and on the painter, photographer and art director Coco Dávez.

1 | What does your house represent to you?

My house is my temple, my holy place. It’s very important to me.

2 | Who chose the furniture?

I personally chose everything for my house. It's very important to me to be comfortable with all the things I own. I love to look for furniture or pieces in trips, stores and flea markets.

I’m minimal in the furniture but I’m very decorative in my works, in the color and in the forms.

3 | Any works of art at home?

3 | Any works of art at home?

The artworks in my house are my works, my favorite paintings and some pieces from my faceless collection.

I have some favorite works in my house, one is a Sargadelos piece from Galicia. It’s very special to me because I was surrounded by Sargadelos pieces when I was a child because my family is from Galicia as well. I’m minimal in the furniture but I’m very decorative in my works, in the color and in the forms.

4 | Where do you get your best ideas?

I think my best ideas come mainly from my trips but also from books, films and my everyday life.

I love to share my home with other people, but at the same time I love to be by myself.

5 | Open Space or separate rooms?

I love large spaces but I prefer them separated. I like a single and big space to work.

6 | Is your house a shelter or a place for sharing?

My house is a place to be with my own but I also love when people come here to cook dinner with me or to have a party. I love to share my home with other people, but at the same time I love to be by myself.

7 | Design and fashion, similarities and differences

I think fashion and design are quite similar, they convey the same atmosphere.

8 | Bath tub or shower?

I prefer bath because it’s my time relax and to be alone.

9 | Home cooking or restaurant?

I love cooking at home and prepare good food for me.

10 | Where would you like to live?

10 | Where would you like to live?

For quite a long time I wanted to live in Los Angeles or in New York. But in this moment, I love to live in Madrid, I love my house, I love this neighborhood I’m very happy here.
