Pink kisses from the two of us!
I think I have mentioned this before that, mainly due to the several mobility restrictions and my self-imposed lockdowns at home, I have been more obsessed with changing things a little bit around the house than with anything else. We started last year with the wallpaper in our bedroom (check post! it still looks exactly as in the pics, it hasn’t peeled at all), then moved to what once was the never-ending gallery wall in our living room (check post!). Since September, instead of going for a bigger project I have changed little bits that help me see things at home different with a small budget: our living room lamp, new 2 chairs, a little mirror, some candles, new frames and art for our bathroom. I will be sharing a complete post that includes the little changes here and there soon because I think it will be fun to see all together!
And this takes us to how I am slowly pastel colorizing our home, which I partially blame to our gallery wall that has pretty (if I may say so) pink, yellow and turquoise tones. I have bought candles to match those colors that are around the living room too and pink colored pampa grass for the dining table center piece that I have to receive any day soon. What about the curtains then?
I bought the curtains at IKEA (LENDA curtains). They were announced as light pink but when they arrived folded inside the package, they were more of a lilac or purple. Although the color was very pretty too I have to admit that I was slightly hesitant. However, fear not, as soon as the light touches they are the same pink as you can see in this post pictures. I bought the curtains with a double intention, first to check if they would look cute in our living room as an alternative of our white ones. Secondly, because I thought that no matter if I finally was convinced to keep them in the living room or not, they would work good for photo sessions. They were IKEA price, which matches my photography props budget which is tending to none, ha!
I really love how it gives a sweet touch to the room. What do you think? I am planning on making a little hack too by painting gold the curtain rod, so stay tuned for this space for the final result.
That’s all folks! (for now!)
In a more serious tone. How have you been? Hope everything is good (minding the circumstances, of course) in your part of the world.
In case you are wondering, in Barcelona things pretty look the same. Although officially on tv they say that contagion numbers are dropping slowly, this will only mean that they’ll start relaxing on restrictions immediately to just get worse later on and therefore bring back more restrictions again, the same circle. On Spanish TV there are talk shows with (witty? irony mode on) commentators asking why things in Australia are better than here, maybe it has to do with the “little” fact that for 15 cases they lockdown an entire city, just saying. Do we really need experts to see that big difference of how things have been handled? We have never been in 0 cases, we’ll never be able to “recover” unless the vaccines do work, so let’s hope for science to save us.
Which is your take on the politics involved in what are also health issues? How is your country handling the situation? Hugs to my Aussie friends and to whom might be reading until here, I love you <3
Oh the pink curtains are so sweet and with a gold rod even sweeter! It’s a challenge adding colour to a home to create cohesion but I think the smartest way is with easily changeable things, so curtains are perfect! We are so lucky in Australia and I’m so lucky where we live, there is social distancing measures in place (when we are out and about) but they are very easy to adhere to. I can’t even fathom these very very long lock downs other countries are facing. Well done for keeping your sanity and finding creative play in your beautiful home!
Me encanta el color, qué has elegido, no es fácil, en estos momentos, ver la vida de este color, pero cada día hacéis grandes esfuerzos para que esto, pronto sea posible. Las fotografías, son preciosas!
