Mixing it up

I'm trying to decompress this long weekend, and enjoy some time not glued to my computer screen like I usually am. Yesterday I spent the day at my sister's cottage and we plan on doing the same Monday. Today is going to be filled with chores and errands (including hopefully the pick-up of a table I selected as payment from an advertiser - can't wait!) and finishing the painting of shelving I took from the cottage last weekend that I was thinking would be awesome shoe storage in my dressing room. Photos to come on both of those eventually. Needless to say I didn't have much time to get something ready for today and because I don't want to leave you guys with a post-less Sunday, how about a cool apartment in Madrid I found at Nuevo Estilo. It was built in 1914 and renovated by architect Borja Puras Vázquez de Prada. I love how the details from that period were maintained and the eclectic mix of old-world and modern furnishings creates such a unique, refreshing look.

Or how about a vibrant taste of urban colour?. Just as inspiring, just as beautiful. The man is a master of his craft.

P.S. And just in case it is all too darkly sophisticated for you I have lightened it with one more all white wonder.

Enrique Menossi part 1

Every so often I come across a website that makes me stop, draw a deep breath then exhale, whistling softly between my teeth. It's an oh my god moment. I see so many photos in my travels around the interwebs, so many beautiful images. Sometimes I see images that are even more inspiring ... if that's possible ... than the images I share with you everyday. Today you'll feel the same way I do. Welcome to the portfolio of Barcelona based photographer Enrique Menossi. First the rustic ...

Spanish minimalism

Cadaquès Apartment by Francesc Rifé. Black. White. Unashamedly modern. Distilled rustic references. White void. Monolithic fireplace anchoring the room. Hero of minimalism ... storage. So which do you prefer Spanish minimalism or Danish? (The great photography is by Eugeni Pons. An amazing portfolio of amazing architecture!)
