A Soft Caress..

For the purpose of this post I shall define Caress to be when one lightly runs his/her hand up and down an item in a home because it’s irresistible in its appearance.


tex
My reaction to the décor of a home is probably not a typical one. I am quite visual so I if an item appeals to me, the urge to touch/feel it is usually quite overwhelming.  Well, this renovated triplex in Barcelona has me twitching; you see I can only look and not touch or rather caress softly(yea, definitely not a typical reaction) the irresistible pieces that are sprinkled throughout.

tex1An item can be made irresistible because of its texture, design, colour etc. For example,  I can bet everyone  who visits wants to caress that elephant’s husk because it’s irresistible and also a statement piece. I know something being irresistible can be relative from one person to the next, HOWEVER,

I cannot fathom why you wouldn’t want to touch/softly caress the things here. So irresistible… I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend or long weekend in some cases.  XX

  21. I didn't know that HGTV now distributes a magazine. I'm honestly going to have to check it out. I really hope you win that dream home! Every time I enter a contest, I start daydreaming about winning the prize--who I'll tell. What I'll do with my winnings...haha.
