I am maddly in LOVE with the 2010 Mulberry S/S 10 collection. I am a big fan of Mulberry I have to admit it, whenever I can afford it I go for it and never ever regret it! their bags are high quality in amazing simple yet so elegant designs that make their owners proud bearers, this new bag here is my new crush! Similar to the classic Bayswater (with a hint of the men's briefcase) with just the redesign necessary to make you go "Wow"! It's the Alexa named after Alexa Chung, OF COURSE! Brit style icon of the year for sure. In several amazing colors and patterns, i love the blue one :) so cheerful!
I love Barcelona, for many reasons and one of them is its markets and it's jamon. You can check all he info about jamon here. If you like this kind of stuff and you haven't tried jamon, you MUST, like Parma ham, but better! Anyway, Barcelona has some beautiful, colorful and very busy markets, probably the most famous one is the Boqueria, a map of colors, flavours and smells that amazes local and tourist alike, an obliged visit if you ever visit the city.
We all know, that almost all Jonathan Adler is impecably chic and tasteful. It's chic, fun, colorful and easy on the eye. His pottery and pillows are great details that will bring life to any home. I'm just amazed with everything he does and I'm so excited with this amazing house he decirated using all his trademarks. Pale and vivid colors at the same time, iconic pieces that scream his name, needlepoint cushions and all the extras. Jonathan Adler here has designed an amazing house that is chic and functional, playful and flamboyant. This is the house of Liz Lange in the New York countryside, this is a house by Jonathan Adler.
I'm NOT loving the bed curtains but the overall result is gorgeous and that huge ottoman is a beauty. My favorites? The sunroo swing and the classic Warren Platner dinning table. And the Joy needlepoint pillow!
I am really excited, I just came back from watching It's complicated with my mom. A very sweet film with an amazing house and an amazing shop/bakery/restaurant. I know many bloggers have alreeady blogged about the house and I was really looking forward to watching it and it didn't disappoint honestly. The Santa Barbara early 1920s mediterranean style It's Complicated house is lush, Nancy Meyer said that as there were many indoor moments, she wanted the house to look good and Meryl Streep to look good in it, well, mission accomplished. The kitchen is to die for (why on earth does she want a new one?), the bathroom is as stunning and the garden is amazing. And the shop is a dream come true!
And they even bake chocolate croissants! And they make it look sooooo easy! How easy can it be? has anyone ever made croissants?The gorgeous bakery was influenced by everything from London’s Daylesford Organic to New York’s City Bakery and Dean & Deluca, among others.
And did you notice? Meryl Streep wears Louboutins all the time? :)
I'll have to watch again The Holiday and Something´s Gotta Give.

Hope you are all having a great Christmas day, I had some free time and I was thinking what I would like to add in my home for the new year... and I think I found it, more color, more pink!
Some time ago, I told you that I was looking for a pink pouffe. I still haven't found one, that suits my budget, I almost won one on Ebay... almost! Pink is such an easy color, and every girl lovs her pink so I'd love to put some pink in my life, I'm after the Jonathan Adler pink bathroom set, I think you know already, to add some -more- color in my bathroom (it will match the curtains too). But besides that, I WANT more pink and have to find a wa to bring it on board without terrorizing my BF... and his manhood... erm.. might be more difficult than what I thought at the beginning... well, might not be lucky but at least I have those trully inspirational images below that make me happyust to look at. La Vie en Rose I guess is not what was meant for me ;-)
Pink is not for kids and Barbies anymore, just don't over do it of course.
Call me shallow but I do enjoy Top 10, Top 20 or Top whatever lists! And Top 20 Most Beautiful of the Decade (that Oh My is ALMOST over, can you believe it?) is just amazing eye candy! Interview magazine, very edgy and on trend has published their list and I'm "drooling"all over! Do I hear "grow up"? yeah, I know... but still... who doesn't enjoy lists and a bit of eye candy, specially during Christmas? I'm so glad Chase Crawford (my new hero ladies) and Eva Mendes are in the list. And RP of course!
Not the 20 of them but here are my ones :) Enjoy! No, Really!
In some hours I'm flying back home for the holidays, I'll be surely blogging from there but before I go I wanted to share some Christmas inspiration. At home in London we only put up a Christmas tree but back in Barcelona nothing really, not a very Christmas(y) family so these images are lovely to share. Enjoy! By the way, I promise (no no, I promise I'll try) this will be the last Christmas post (I might find something great to share). I love the card display (first one) so simple , crafty and unique, love it! And the silver wreath with the reindeer? Stunning.
Wishing you all Happy Holidays! All the Best to everyone! xoxo
