[Warm] Winter

Siendo honestas, estamos acostumbradas a temperaturas de playa y a inviernos más bien cálidos, ya que hemos estado la mayor parte de nuestras vidas entre Miami y Santo Domingo. También tenemos la fortuna de haber vivido, aunque por breve tiempo, en ciudades con inviernos marcados  en donde puedes vivir y disfrutar de cada estación. En Madrid hace bastante frío estos días, por lo que para nosotras no hay mejor sensación que llegar a casa, preparar un café o chocolate caliente en tu taza favorita, sentarte en el salón con una mantita y sentirte en tu propio mundo acogedor y lleno de calidez. Aquí les dejamos algunas de nuestras piezas favoritas para calentar el hogar durante el invierno.

Estamos muy felices de participar en #Decopedia 1: Casas vestidas para el frío de Petite Candela con este post!

To be honest with you, we are more used to beach weather and rather warm winters, since we have lived most of our lives between Miami and Santo Domingo. We are very fortunate to have also lived in cities with ‘real winters’,  where you can enjoy the differences between each season. Madrid is quite cold these days, so to us there is no better feeling than to get home, pour yourself a cup of coffee or hot cocoa in your favorite mug, sit in your living room with a warm blanket, and just enjoy the feeling that you are in your very own cozy little world. Here are some of our favorites to make your home warm and cozy during winter time.

We are thrilled to participate in #Decopedia 1: ‘Homes dressed for cold weather’, by Petite Candela with this post!

Wynwood Art District- Urban art in Miami

Hello everybody, happy new year! After a long break from blogging we are back. We’ve barely had any free time in our schedule these past few months since Darys has been crazy busy at work, and I was studying for a couple of exams towards getting my US architectural license. Everybody in the arch profession knows how these exams can be quite the grueling process. But guess what? PASS for both of them, so 4 down, only 3 more exams to go! I actually received the news for one of them via e-mail on Christmas day, and let me tell you, it was the best Christmas present a girl could get! We may have to take another quick break once the next test dates start approaching so we ask for a little bit of your patience while we get those monsters out of the way!

Since we spent Christmas and new year’s at Miami, we though it would be a good idea to share with everyone from out of town some images of our visit to the Wynwood Arts District. It’s amazing to see how much the city has evolved over the last couple of years. Definitely urban art at its finest. We just couldn’t get enough of the place!

Must visit places: Wynwood walls, Wynwood Kitchen and bar, Wood tavern, The Butcher Shop, Panther Coffee

Baby Nursery Inspiration

This week we are working on the design of a baby nursery for the upcoming arrival of beautiful baby Iago. So in keeping with the baby theme, we want to share with you some of our favorite nursery rooms from Houzz.

***

Esta semana estamos trabajando en el diseño de la habitación de baby Iago, que todavía esta en la barriguita de su mami. Así que, para mantenernos dentro del ‘tema bebé’, queremos compartir con ustedes algunas de nuestras habitaciones  favoritas publicadas en Houzz.

We love the color combination in these ones: / Nos encanta la combinación de colores en estas habitaciones:

For the little prince:/ Para el pequeño príncipe de la casa: 

Fit for a princess:/ Hecho para una princesa: 

You can’t go wrong if you add a modern classic to the scheme:/ Imposible equivocarte si añades mobiliario clásico-moderno: 

For the city sleek kid:/ Para el peque super citadino: 

Whether you lean more towards a more classic theme or a modern approach, we are sure many of these designs can inspire you!

Casa Mono, Madrid

If you like eclectic but modern design then you will absolutely love the aesthetics of this restaurant. We have been to Casa Mono on many occasions and we love it, so this post was way overdue!

With a ‘New York feel’ to it but located in Madrid, Casa Mono is a great place to visit if you are in town.
