a collector’s dream home in barcelona.

a collector's dream home in barcelona / sfgirlbybay

first off, that sofa? can we discuss how comfy cozy that looks to curl up on? and those serge mouille light fixtures have long been on my wish list. in fact, this barcelone apartment decorated by Miquel Alzueta and featured in architectural digest espana is full of rare, designer collections (all those fabulous chairs!) — and that bookcase by Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé. It’s all quite stunning, included the pops of pink and those ornate black doors with a peek into the bedroom. for the entire tour, visit architectural digest espana.

hello all,

i find that many times pinners overlap…which isn’t such a bad thing. in the case of many of the pinners i follow, i truly believe it’s because i follow a group of folks with nothing short of lovely taste and lucky for me, happen to gel with my aesthetic. i also love when i happen upon a pinner that finds beautiful things i have yet to bump into. such is the case of alecia @ likes of us. there is a huge list of pinning perfection i can’t believe i haven’t had the pleasure of noticing before.

i am happy to say that now after spending a great deal of time on alecia’s boards there is a heck of a lot more overlap. i can’t turn down beautiful, sophisticated items no matter how hard i try.

a few favorites…

Top to bottom, left to right:

1. Starkness and adornment complement one another in this Barcelona home.
2. Black accents bring edge to an otherwise white bedroom.
3. Modern lighting and a bar counter complete this masculine kitchen.
4. I think I’ve fallen in love with this New York apartment.
5. Sesame-like speckles give a palatable touch to these stoneware bowls.

Happy Friday,
Annie

serendipitous pins.

i’m having that weird (but, good weird) thing happening again — it’s this odd occurrence where all of a sudden i’ve got serendipitous pins going on. this time around, the common color theme appears to be hues of greens and copper. i’ve noticed a lot of these shades popping up in my pinterest feed this week. maybe it’s a hot new trend, or maybe just my mood — they feel a little bit like autumn on its way. these were the pretty pins staring back at me from the pinterest page today.
