Eclectic Spanish Style Pad

I love Spanish Style homes, and this one is no exception! I love this eclectic pad that belongs to stationary designer Cristina Re. She says in her interview here that; "She loves to collect pretty and unique things from  her travels to Paris, Rome, LA and Shanghai".










Ideas to steal from the Article:


1. Start with clean, white walls and use objects, like candle holders and vintage signs, to give your home a warm ambiance. That way, if fashion trends change in the future, you can easily change the look of your space.

2. Create different colour schemes for each room, choosing a maximum of two to three colours, to create a bold contrasting effect.

3. Use spray paint on old picture frames or other decorative objects so they complement your colour scheme. It’s amazing how quick and easy it can be to transform a simple, old piece into something beautiful and new again.

LOVE this space!

I like red best when it just shows off a little bit.

Just discovered your blog and am having a great time emerging myself in it.

PS- love your pic of your and your pug. I have a black pug and I'm a little obsessed :)
