He currently combines his work as an interior designer with his work as a teacher at the IADE School of Design in Madrid, with its program Pascua Ortega School Of Style.
Her style has always been linked to high decoration. Therefore, his product designs include French and English style furniture, totally cosmopolitan, elegant and functional.

Symmetry and beauty mark the interiors of Luis Bustamante’s Alta Decoración. Today, his product designs are treated as haute couture accessories made decoration; elements that are impeccable, classic but at the same time surprising.
3. Kelly Wearstler
One of the most important international interior designers is Kelly Wearstler. Her passion for interior design was sparked by her mother, who was an antique dealer, and influenced Kelly from a very young age to the world of interior and graphic design.
Eventually, she ended up decorating the homes of major international celebrities such as Cameron Diaz and Gwen Stefani.
These works gave her a name of her own and catapulted her as one of the most creative and modern decorative professionals of the moment.
Currently, Kelly Wearstler has her own interior design studio, influenced by a multisensory and cozy style. In fact, in her aesthetics we can find designs that combine in perfect harmony with organic elements, impossible lines and unique and unrepeatable textures.
4. Kelly Hoppen
Totally creative products, committed to the environment and in constant renovation. This would be the best definition we could find for the designs of Kelly Hoppen, a British interior designer born in Johannesburg.
An advocate of aesthetic minimalism, Hoppen is today a transgressive and cosmopolitan figure in the world of interior design.
With more than 40 years of experience, she is one of the most famous and sought-after interior designers in the world.
She is considered passionate about taupe and simple shapes and is internationally recognized for fusing different decorative elements and textures from the East with those of the West.
5. Cristian Liaigre
The French interior designer Christian Liaigre was, until the day of his death, the leading decorator of minimalism. His designs stood out for being discreet, with simple lines and tight proportions. Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld and Larry Gagosian entrusted the decoration of their residential spaces to Liaigre.
Their decorations presented simple but luxurious lines, with warm colors and natural materials.
In all of them we could find wood, leather and bronze; elements that were at the base of everything he created and connected with the equestrian universe that fascinated him so much as a child.
Today, his legacy still haunts us, and inspires us to create spaces with their own personality, committed to the environment and with an eye for the smallest details.
6. Lázaro Rosa-Violán

Since she designed her first restaurant in Ibiza in 1990, Rosa-Violán has reaped great projects all over the world; from the decoration of different Inditex stores around the world, to hotels, restaurants or retail spaces of all kinds.
His work also extends to product design, creating spectacular lamps, handles and exclusive designer washbasins.
Born in Tangier to Catalan parents, Lázaro Rosa-Violán grew up in Bilbao and ended up opening his interior design studio in the city of Barcelona. A painter by vocation and lover of interior design, one of his goals is to create unique and special atmospheres through classic and evocative decoration.
7. Lorenzo Castillo
Lorenzo Castillo, another of the best Spanish interior designers, is for Molins Design a reference for his classic decoration in perfect harmony. With a degree in Art History from the Complutense University of Madrid, Castillo brings together in all his most famous works and designs his passion for classical elements and antiques.
Throughout his professional career, Castillo has not only worked on interior design projects, but is also known for his jewelry and textile designs. Therefore, many know him as a creator of unique pieces and spaces.
Works that draw attention precisely because of his taste for delicacy and a neoclassical touch that is not strident and in balance with the rest of the elements.
Among his most significant works of decoration and furniture in our country is the Museo del Traje and the remodeling of the hotels of the Room Mate chain in Madrid, Malaga and Granada.
8. François Halard
We also highlight in this list the Frenchman François Halard, the interior photographer of the artists’ houses of the last century.
In his last years of life he has linked the world of photography to the interior architecture, creating a new vision of the Haute Decoration of interiors.
Through his photos we can travel to some of the most spectacular interiors of the Austrian capital and even discover some of the most famous pop-up style designs on the planet.
In any case, from Molins Design we recommend you to take a look at his publications to get inspired with new decorations through his photography.
9. Martin Brudnizki
Swedish interior architect Martin Brudnizki is considered one of the best restaurant and hotel designers of his generation. Capable of transmitting emotions through his decorations, Brudnizki stands out internationally for his aesthetic designs connected to functionality.
He currently has two interior design studios: one located in the British capital and the other in New York. Two workspaces that he has earned thanks to his long professional career. Works that combine a very personal style with elements that work at a practical level while remaining elegant, comfortable and innovative.
10. Francesc Rifé
We finish our list of the best interior designers with the rational and tidy Francesc Rifé. His restrained, functional and truly aesthetic style can be found in Michelin-starred restaurants, restored convents, rural hotels and even domestic spaces.
With a degree in Interior and Industrial Design, Rifé currently has his own interior design studio in Barcelona, influenced by minimalism.
A work space of great family tradition, which is closely linked to the design of handcrafted products.
His work is articulated around spatial order and geometric proportion. That is why we consider him one of our major references in terms of interior decoration in Barcelona. In fact, Francesc Rifé is for Molins Design the clear example of how simplicity and austerity can create majestic and elegant decorations.
