Go "striped"! The most upholstery summer

There is nothing more summery than a striped textile. We have them on the canvases of the sunbeds in blue and white tones, on the awnings (proper) in bottle green and white, in countless tablecloths in very bright reds and blues or yellow on pillows, sofas, or "cookies" of the chairs

The stripes, traditionally wide and always combined with white, they are the ones chosen to give color to a season where it is hot and another type of print can be too motley. The decoration in summer has to be fresh, simple, without complications…

Parasols to match the hammocks or sunbeds are very vintage, yes, vintage from the 20s of the last century. If we think of a snapshot of any Spanish beach, in our imagination we will see awnings and sun loungers with the inevitable navy or sailor style based on blue stripes.

In wood, raffia, rattan, plastic, pexiglas, metallic, different styles, materials, designs and prices but a common denominator, the stripes.

Later the greens and the red ones were introduced and especially the yellow.Columpios with its awning and striped mat, easy to combine with white or even with yellow and white pillows. If at first the stripes were always symmetrical and wide, the variety is now huge: thin, wide, more together, more separated, different colors, but always stripes.

Do you like the typical summer striped print for outdoor textiles?

Rough walls and custom furniture to take advantage of all the spaces in a charming little house in South Carolina

This house of approximately 180 m2 located in Charleston, South Carolina, was built in the nineteenth century as a kitchen house. That is, a small house that is part of a main house, and that was used for cooking and serving the main house. The house has been acquired a couple (father and son) who reformed it to become a two-story house, with the help of the American design studio Workstead.

Open doors: a small apartment that dares with red

I love teaching small houses because they are the ones that most closely resemble the houses we have in Spain (and in many cities around the world). In these apartments we can find bold ideas that we can apply to our day to day and that we would not have chosen if we had not previously seen them. In this case, what most attracts my attention is the use of the intense red color for decoration, a color that would not traditionally be associated with the painting of the wall of a small space.

Celebrity houses: Hilary Duff

The last time I've seen Hilary Duff has been as a guest artist in Gossip Girl, a series that has me crazy and that I like very much. Before that, and although in Spain her name does not sound much, she has starred in several films and a series for the Disney Channel, in which she already demonstrated her acting skills since childhood.
