holidays & decoration

It has become a tradition to make the most of Easter holidays by painting and decorating some rooms in our home. I painted our spare/guests bedroom two years ago and painted the living room last Easter (with Mr.A.'s major support). So now all the painting is done and we've got rid of the yellowish beige color that the previous owner considered appropriate whatever the reason.
However I had not ambitious plans for my Easter holidays this year, only doing some sewing and minor repairs at home.

Ya es una tradición aprovechar las vacaciones de semanasanta para hacer labores de pintura y decoración en alguna habitación de la casa. Hace dos años pinté la habitación de invitados y el año pasado le tocó a la sala (con la inestimable ayuda de Mr.A.). Así que ya hicimos toda la casa y nos libramos del color amarillento que el anterior propietario eligió por alguna razón.
En cambio este año no tenía ningún plan ambicioso para estas vacaciones, sólo unas pocas reparaciones y algo de costura.


My 'studio' with some work in progress and some pictures for inspo: Frida Kahlo, Iris Apfel, Mr. Chagall and an enamel picture made by my mom (based on a blue horses painting by Franz Marc), which is much appreciated.

Este es mi 'estudio' con varios trabajos a medias por ahí y unas imágenes para inspirarse: Frida Kahlo, Iris Apfel, Chagall y un cuadro de esmalte, que aprecio mucho, hecho por mi madre de una de las pinturas de caballos azules de Franz Marc.

There's probably a thousand things that could be improved in our flat, but I'm satisfied with not having ugly color walls!. All right, I also have curtains and lamps and some cute cushions!;D

Probablemente haya mil cosas que podrían mejorarse en nuestro piso, pro estoy bastante satisfecha con no tener un color de pared horrible. Bueno, también he puesto cortinas y lámparas y unos cojines! ;D



I've been looking for some kind of grid panel to display my accessories and finally I found this one. I still have to sort out many necklaces and bracelets!

He estado buscando alguna clase de rejilla expositora para mis accesorios y al final he encontrado esto. Todavía me quedan unos cuantos collares y pulseras que colocar.

Our bedroom has some new pictures now. I took them in our holidays (love an old door!) and ordered to be printed on canvas in a local photo centre.

El dormitorio tiene estos nuevos cuadros, que son impresiones en lienzo de unas fotos que saqué cuando estuvimos de vacaciones (lo que me gusta una puerta vieja!)


And I've stored most of my winter clothes which are now in this wardrobe into (recycled) plastic bags or boxes.

Y también he almacenado la mayoría de mi ropa de invierno que ahora está guardada en este armario dentro de sus correspondientes bolsas o cajas.

Hope you have had a fab holiday, whatever you did!. I've spent some time with my family and took this picture with mom who is becoming a blogger star!

Espero que hayáis tenido unas vacaciones estupendas, haciendo lo que sea que os haya apetecido. Yo he pasado tiempo con mi familia y saqué esta foto con mi madre, que está hecha una estrella del blog!

    I absolutely love those teal walls and that amazing paisley bed cover and as a fellow fan of grand doorways your photographic prints are beautiful.

  2. What a colourful and stylish home you have, Monica! I agree, having colourful walls is a priority. After all, your home should reflect your personality, so having neutral coloured walls would be so NOT you ;-) Your Mum's enamel picture is just fabulous, and I love the photos you took of the old doors. I love old doors too! You and your Mum are both looking fabulous, and yes, your Mum is definitely becoming a blogger star! Besos xxx

  3. I adore those turquoise walls! Makes me think I should paint but that lasts all of a minute before I rethink the amount of work required. LOL

    Love your shots with your stylish Mom.

  6. I love all the bright colours in your home - it is time for L and I to start thinking about doing some redecorating, but we both find other things to do! Look at your mom, all chic and stylin'! I love her shoes!

  7. Nice photo of you and your stylish Mom! I can't stand living anywhere that has beige or white walls. I've been lucky that I've been able to paint the rooms in my last two apartments. Love the teal!
