Dreaming About This Fabulous 19th Century House in Barcelona

In my days working for a corporate giant, we always made an annual pilgrimage to a consumer electronics fair in Barcelona, Spain. As someone who's not too interested in tech (some might say a total luddite!) the highlight of my trip was to stroll through the old town and dream about what lay behind the lovely old facade. I knew the homes would be pretty, but I certainly didn't think they'd be quite as fabulous as this! Located in the heart of the city, the 19th century house belongs to interior decorator Marta Tobella - who has lovingly transformed the space into a perfect oasis. Think fresh whites combined with tactile rattan, bamboo and wood - as well as large double doors that flood the kitchen and master bedroom with a welcoming cool breeze! 


This house has me longing to return to Barcelona (without the expo!). I love that Marta has installed a small pool to help keep cool on balmy days. Heaven! 

Could you imagine rocking about here? 

Tonight I'm doing a live session with Carl Hansen & Søn at 7pm CET. If you're around and fancy hearing about 'The Danish Concept of Hygge' and seeing my film of the incredible Danish Manor I visited last week, sign up here and join the fun (it's online, open to all and completely free). I hope you can stop by!

And tomorrow I'm heading to Copenhagen to meet with Skandinavisk (it's all go right now!). I'm slightly concerned that this means I won't get around to writing tomorrows post - if this is the case, rest assured I'll be back on Friday! 

Have a lovely evening!

    1. Yes, me too! Such a beautiful home, it immediately whisked me away to warmer climes!

    That rug is amazing!! I want to get one just like it but I'm not sure what I would do for rug cleaning if it got dirty.
