I hope you all enjoyed wonderful holidays and are feeling energised at the start of another new year. My son asked me what would happen in 2013 and I told him that he would turn eight. He was quite satisfied with the answer.
I hope I don't offend anyone, but I think that the more content you are with your life, and the choices you have made, the less need there is to yell from rooftops that the new year is going to be amazing. The number of the year doesn't matter, there are always opportunities in life and it's up to us to grab them; to have the guts to grab them.
My new year philosophy is very simple, for some years I have been saying to myself come what may and that is exactly what I did at midnight on Monday when I stood outside with my children watching the fireworks.
Come what may!
That said, I think it's time to explain these photos.
These three spaces in a Madrid flat are my latest interior design crush. I have kept them on my desktop for some days now and I cannot get enough. I find the bright, colourful and arty living room so enticing, and I like how balanced it is. I think the black frames, lamps, and shelves help create that balance. The mix of furniture in there is right up my alley.
I am drawn to the simplicity of the other two spaces. Both look modern but the artwork has that grounding effect and adds charm. It was Porras & La Casta architects that designed the flat. To see the rest of it, follow the link under photo credit.
