So My Style – I Want This Room So Badly

Happy new week friends! I just came across this Barcelona home via the lovely Design Elements and I nearly fainted. Oh my! That first image is immediately going into my personal file of favorite rooms. I love everything about this area. The tall windows, the natural light, the colors, the eclectic style, books & art everywhere and the relaxed feel. To me — perfection.

And I am still going back and forth about which chairs to add to my new gray farm table. Remember that post?  These white iconic Panton chairs above? Or the Tolix chairs (see the metal French bistro chair below)? You will see more on them soon (and the new table too!).

Ok, I just have to get back to that first room again — and show it from a different angle. Imagine having a cocktail at that table. Or a cup of tea when glancing through some new magazines. Do you know what also caught my eye? That wall sculpture with the fun character pushing a wheel up the wall! Makes me laugh out loud. I love unexpected art pieces.

Warm hugs to you all!

    It is a well balanced and harmonious room with textural interest that doesn’t over whelm the senses but calms them.
    nice choice,

    I love what you see and I love that I can feel your motivation behind this post :) You truly have an eye for beauty and that makes you so beautiful to me! The chairs….deep down there is decision that has already been made. I find that when I’m truly back and forth, it’s because I’m just not ready to commit and tell the other (chair in this case) that they weren’t chosen :) I can’t wait to see anything and everything you have done XOXO

    Apparently I really loved this post because my computer froze up and then posted my comment twice. Third time is a charm. Have a great day!

  • Janell Beals says:

    Oh, when I saw the second image of the room I fell in love too, those ceilings! Ah…

    Looking forward to seeing your table and what chairs you select. I just got my dining room table and someday it may have some chairs pulled up to it…what I have no idea!

    That’s beautiful! What I love is the incredible feeling it gives you when you look at it. I guess that’s the unexplainable magic in great design…

  • you have such a sophisticated eye, Monika. That relaxed, kind of raw wood table really makes the space. and love the mix of chairs.

    looking forward to seeing your space, too…

    Hej Mon!
    Jag instämmer helt, jag blev fullkomligt förälskad i det här rummet när jag först såg den här bilden(även jag hos den talangfulla, underbara tjejen med bloggen Design Elements)!
    Älskar gardinerna som släpar på golvet, möblerna, arkitekturen, ljuset, ja ALLT!
    Hade dock helt missat det lilla konstverket på väggen, förtjusande:)!
    Kram på dig!

  • Charlotta says:

    Yes I agree, it’s a wonderful room. So full of design yumminess and of course all that natural light!

    Am head over heels with that little creature pushing the wheel! What a fab addition to a room. Who is it by, do you know?

    Big hugs to you
    xx sis

    P.S. Har inte hunnit gora de dar sakerna till barnen annu, men ska borja nar mina egna kottar borjar skolan om bara en vecka. Har inte glomt sa snalla ha talamod med mig.

  • I agree with you Monika – these rooms “sing” – elegance, simplicity and warmth! I would love to hang out in that living room and dining room.

    Thanks for your uplifting words. I’m so glad that the red chalkboard in my kitchen inspired you and your little one.

    A big hug and kiss to you both!

  • So warm and chic all at once. And as for your chairs, I have to vote Panton- I love the matte white ones against a harvesty grey table- magic!

  • Lana says:

    I am so with you on that first room! I absolutely love those simple black and white curtains, the wooden floors, chairs and French doors, sigh, I would be in heaven in that room! Thanks so much for your comments on my blog ‘renovation’, your stamp of approval means the world to me! Hugs xx
