Colour queen is here! Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, iconic Spanish designer, agathize everything she touches, and she did it again. This season, the colour queen is becoming an Airbnb host and opening the doors of a stunning space in Madrid where her multicoloured universe stands out and her unmistakable personality is in every corner.
Colour-therapy and vibrant tones distinguish the style and personality of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. Her personal residence, which has been featured in countless international design magazines, is a faithful reflection of her own world, and now that Agatha becomes a host on the platform, those who book this unique experience will enjoy exclusive access to a slice of her life, as this listing will feature objects from her own and private collection of furnitures that even are found on her home.
Fashion, art and design lovers who book this two-night stay* will experience unique moments in the “heart corner” and relax after a long journey visiting Madrid’s streets on the chill-out rooftop overlooking the city skyline. The day will end by sleeping immersed in colourful hearts. In addition, guests will have exclusive access to some of the brand’s outfits, in which they can parade as if they were on a real fashion runway.
“Madrid was the city where I started working during the fiery years of La Movida Madrileña, when we all wanted to become famous and take over the world. Yet Madrid, such a special city adopted by so many visitors, is still full of Spain’s creative whispers, its impulses towards culture, internationalism and beyond, and a city of dreamers. I hope that those who enjoy this agathized experience can feel the same vibe as I do!”

“After the travel restrictions, more than ever people are willing to celebrate life. We are very excited that Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, newly appointed as an Airbnb host, has designed a space that has the dose of optimism we need.

Airbnb wants this partnership to show that vitality, dynamism and leadership hand in hand with Agatha Ruiz de la Prada,”
