I do not know you @ s, but I need my monthly dose of the magazine AD Spain and as the last two numbers are not exactly among my favorites, I threw homemade hemeroteca and I have started to reread some backward magazines. And in the April 2009 I have met again with the house of genius Lorenzo Castillo, home insurance will remember for this video. I’m in love with the kitchen full of textures and materials mixed (chrome, marble, polished steel, wood … ) and I learned how a good textile white and blue are able to “refresh” and give new life to the most sober and classic antiques, not those just entering my eye. And the dining room reminiscent of a Parisian bistro? With the great bench upholstered in blue run? Maybe you remember this video, featuring the madrilian home of one of our spanish top Interior Designers: Lorenzo Castillo. Now I show you some photos from His home that I found in the Spanish Edition AD magazine. Love the combination of textures and materials used in the kitchen, I adore the way mixes blue and white textiles With very “serious” antiques. That Resembles love his dining to French? Coffee. Love the whole of it.
No I just believe that this house so sober, so bright colors as neutral and full of furniture mid-century, as “Scandinavian” at the end of the day, is the refuge of one of my designer textiles home favorite: Amy Butler. A woman playing with color and shapes masterfully able to illuminate any stay with just put on it a piece of its great prints. I do not know, I imagined a house full of cushions and chairs upholstered in a thousand ways… perhaps more feminine, but certainly much more stamped. But actually, to me this house I like it as is. And is that she feels great to live in a place like chapeau, alors!  I’ve just come through these photos from the home of one of my favorite textile designers: Amy Butler. I must admit I’m quite surprised to see that there are really very few of her gorgeous print fabrics. I do not know, I imagined a house filled with colorful cushions, maybe more feminine. Anyway, I love her house and if it’s inspiring for her, then a great for all of us, admirers of her work. Continue reading Amy Butler Home
I never could have imagined such a garden in a Danish home. Of course, this is the perfect Danish house. And although it is true that I have not been there, I could not imagine such a welcoming exterior, so vivid. I’m totally in love with that little garden, covered porch, the outdoor fireplace, but first and foremost, of the house itself. A house with all the gusto to bring me 50 stone by stone to a good Spaniard prao overlooking the sea. I would put the centennial tree. · I’d never imagined in Danemark such cozy outdoors (though I must admit I’ve never been there so far). To me, this house is perfect: the outside chimney, the porch, the design itself. I’d bring it, stone by stone to Spain (I’d look for the tree!).
And above have these views. Who gives more? · And they have this views…
Theater. It is true. But the good … and Jordi Sergio live in Valencia and it seems that follow this blog (thanks, guys).

And then, noticing calmly, I realized that the lamp is almost identical to this that I have in the bazaar and that fascinates me … Have you left wanting more yellow? Desire to Inspire has an entire category called yellow. Enjoy it. I could not help posting this absolutely gorgeous dining room. I love the yellow chromed chairs but, above all, I love the vintage chandelier, I so similar to this one I have right now in the Bazaar. Fancy more yellow? Do not miss the link…
Today I bring images of one of those pieces already converted design icons of the last century: the lamp Pipistrello (bat, in Italian), designed in 1965 by the great architect, industrial designer and scenography Up! Gae Aulenti. From the first moment I saw her, long ago, I found this beautiful lamp with a futuristic touch most attractive. And since then, whenever I find her in a magazine, web or blog, I keep images to look at them again and again (well, that actually happens to me with many lamps).  One of my favorite table lamps ever has – been, since the very moment I saw it, the scenography lamp, designed in 1965 by Italian architect industrial designer and scenography Gae Aulenti. An outstanding woman, I would give you add. And since I’m addicted to save images of lamps that I like, let me share with you just a few of the Pipistrello, treats including the top One with her.

Buenos Aires. 30m2. Two floors and red walls framing an incredible collection of vintage pieces from different eras. A lesson in how to get maximum style in minimal space.

Oh, that trunk vintage Vuitton (I close sigh…)  Buenos Aires. About 323 sq. feet. Two levels and red all around. The perfect frame to display All These vintage treasures (have you noticed the old Vuitton trunk???). A lesson of great style in a tiny space.

I know, I’m a heavy, but understand me… When I discovered the existence of such metal candelabra-mechano some time, the crush was instant. Ever since I had in my hands, and I started decorating my house with the ways that I myself was able to create with these modules, the idyll was in crescendo. And now I finally start to see them in decorating magazines (and not any; yesterday my beloved in AD!) Will understand having to shout to the four winds… ;). So, heavy or not, here are a couple of pictures of one of the most beautiful Christmas tables as I can remember. And, ahem, there are a lot of identical or similar in the chandeliers Bazaar (gold, chrome, copper …), to make a structure like this…. Or even a couple! (Oh, and do not forget to click on the images to see them in all their glory) Continue reading Christmas Table with Vintage Taste
