Being Green: A bike that portrays YOU!

We love the idea of trading the car every once in a while for a greener approach to transportation: a nice bike ride specially during spring time. But of course, if we want to do that we might as well have a beautiful and fun bike to go around.  Urban Outfitters is working together with Republic Bike to let you create the bike of your dreams. You can pick your bike model and then choose the colors in it. We customized two models we would love for ourselves! How would your bike be?

Nos encanta la idea de cambiar el coche(carro) de vez en cuando por una opción más ecológica de transporte: un divertido y saludable paseo en bici por la ciudad, en especial durante la primavera. Pero por supuesto, si queremos hacer esto lo suyo es tener una bici bien diseñada, y con colores divertidos que te alegren el paseo. Urban Outfitters, junto con Republic Bike te permiten elegir entre varios modelos de bicicletas, y luego puedes cambiar los colores de cada pieza a tu gusto.  No nos pudimos resistir así que hemos hecho dos bicis en nuestros modelos favoritos con los colores que nos encantaría tener. Cómo sería tu bici?

Colorful Interior

A touch of color has the ability to bring energy and even happiness to a space. With the summer almost here, and looking forward to see more color everywhere, we want to share with you one of our favorite projects from  award winning spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, based in Milan. The Vieques Island W retreat is a fantastic example of  how color can be applied to a design without overpowering the space.

Un toque de color tiene la habilidad de proyectar energía e inclusive  una sensación de felicidad en un espacio. Con el verano prácticamente aquí y con muchísimas ganas de ver más color en todas partes, queremos compartir con ustedes uno de nuestros proyectos favoritos de la laureada diseñadora española Patricia Urquiola, la cual tiene su estudio en Milan. El Hotel W de Vieques es un ejemplo fantástico de como el color puede ser aplicado a un diseño sin que se apodere de todo el lugar.

Colorful Doors

Spring is here, and we are looking forward to see more color on the streets. We just love a pop of color! A great way to update an otherwise traditional facade is adding this type of statement in the entrance. Would you dare paint your front door pink? We would totally go for turquoise!

La primavera ya esta aquí y estamos esperando con muchas ganas ver más color en la calle. Nos encanta la vida que dan los colores! Una manera muy fácil de dar un toque actual a una fachada que por lo demás sería tradicional es añadiendo un toque de color con este tipo de statement de ‘bienvenida’. Te atreverías a pintar tu puerta de entrada color rosa? Nosotras nos atreveríamos al 100% con el color turquesa!
