I’m always on the look for inspirational projects, and came across this one in a magazine. Marta Castellano is an interior designer based in Barcelona and this minimalist apartment is one of her projects, I chose it because I love the raw materials and neutral pallet of colours chosen. The light that shows with the mix of black here and there, the art pieces found and the use of plants make it a calm and clean space. Take a look.
I was taking a walk looking for a place to have a coffee, it was a hot day in Lisbon and we were trying to find a nice place with a terrace when I came across this little place called Casa do inglez in Benfica. The terrace had wooden tables and lots of flowers so we stopped. It was a really nice surprise when I saw the inside, an eclectic decor filled the room and it was so inviting. We just had coffee but I will definitely come back for a dinner ( people, my birthday is in August ).
Refreshing to see that people are taking more care in the decor of these small places. Take a look and please stop by to appreciate!

I came across this nursery here and although all the scandi vibe everywhere, I thought this was a really inspiring and creative nursery. There are items that we all know, but what’s really striking is the brush strokes in that Klein blue, it makes all the difference in the room and makes me think, why haven’t I thought of that before? It’s simple ideas like this one that sometimes make a space!!
… and so are we! Hello again!! This time with a post about black in interior decoration.
With all the Scandinavian trend going on, there are a number of colours that you can combine with the typical neutrals and raw materials. Also, black is always a clean , deep colour to use when you want to have a sleek finish or want to give the idea of an industrial look, it also works for minimalistic interiors and if you want to, you can add Pops of any other colour.
Take a look at these looks, and be inspired.
And yesterday, Pantone released the new colour of the year, it’s green, a spring bright shade of green.
I must confess I was expecting a darker, deeper green, more like an emerald or kind of army green! But I like green, this shade is going to be a bit more challenging in terms of interior design, but I think we are going to be surprised! We have already been seeing lots of green in decor and it’s a colour full of hope and youth that we have grown acostumed to, it connects us to nature and it’s usually the colour to go to when we need to feel uplifted!
I can’t wait to see all the solutions that will come up the following year.
