From Barcelona with style...

Wednesday, 18 November 2009

Who haven’t heard about all the great things Barcelona have to offer? The buzz of the city and its people, the art and design scene, the great food, the non-end shopping list and above all the arquitecture. I lived in BCN for over a year when I was studying design and can give credit that it is one of the best cities to live and have fun in. It was one of the best experiences of my life and the place where I met my dear friend Pilar, from the multidisciplinary design firm playground, who’s gorgeous flat I am showing here today.

The building dates back to 1890-1900 and it is considered to be from the modernist period, Art Nouveau, very tall ceilings, doors and windows, and the most distinctive feature, the hydraulic tiles with an organic/floral decoration.

I am very pleased to share with you all this gorgeous photos that photographer Leslie de Leon recently took of her flat, with the help of the stylist Cecilia Fältman. I remember the space being beautiful and full of very interesting pieces that she has gathered in her many travels, but this photos shows that not only she has a great eye for interiors and excellent style, but they reminds me of the grandiose scale of the rooms. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I do, In the future I am hoping to post more about my friend's houses, I just need to convince them to take some good photos and send it to me, not hard work after all, isn't?



You can tell the influence of Pilar's travels in her house, she has collected beautiful pieces from different countries over the years...

She has painted the flat following the hydraulic tiles color's scheme


Nice selection of textiles, black and pink...
