Una Casa En Barcelona.


This house in Barcelona belongs to decorator,Monste Esteva.   He purchased the detached home and went to work making his vision of the space come to fruition via a a major renovation.  I love his effortless mix of styles and the gorgeous hardwood floors throughout his home; how they shine literally and figuratively. I could gaze at them all day…




A charming kitchen with bursts of colour-is that I a fuchsia tolix chair? Love the Moroccan vibe exuding from the floor motif.

(same kitchen with a more open view)

The ceiling is remarkable, is it not?

Those floors again and a fireplace – oh la, la!

I see rosemary, geraniums, an oleander bush and and… Really, seeing such a lush outdoor space is one of the reasons I yearn for Spring.

Don’t you just love this home?

If you celebrated Valentine’s Day, I hope it was a spectacular one for you!  The sod will be placed in the yard maybe sometime this week at the new house, so we’re almost at the end of the road folks! The Blakes will hopefully have  a place to call home soon! Happy Tuesday everyone! XX

  1. BONJOUR or rather, HOLA my dear! OH STACY, I can see how the white works with the dark brown furniture here....these rooms, oh dear, they are TDF! If I had to do it over, I would have ordered our couch in gray velvet, but instead, I think I can put some gray velvet pillows with my brown. AND YOU GOT YOUR DRIVEWAY AND MAILBOX????YIPEEEE!!! It is coming, it is almost here! It finally happened for us, and now it is just a couple of small loose ends to button up. As soon as you are ready, let me know; I really do want to host a celebration for your HOUSEWARMING!!!

    Have a splendid day, and a VALENTINES MONTH! Bises, Anita

  2. Oh what an absolutely stunning home ~ full of quirky elements and incredibly beautiful use of colour and textures. Are they windows each side of the bed? Or mirrors? Not sure ~ but I want to think they are amazing windows. This one is totally out of the box ~ I could just move right in.
