Casa Azul by Cincopatasalgato

” Happy, serene, gentle, friendly, good-hearted young family of 4 built this beach house at Costa Azul, an hour and half away from San Salvador and close to the border with Guatemala. Husband and father works in capital investment and wife and mother is the owner of La Luna de Mateo in San Salvador, a kids’ playhouse that caters to their imagination and need for exploration. Both born and raised in El Salvador, they resettled in their native country after years of traveling and living abroad to build a home that spoke to their gentle nature. Their new home, built right on the beach, allowed their children Mateo and Luna, 6 and 4 respectively, to play and explore at their hearts’ desire. Between choosing the location and designing the home, their ideal home would have the following elements – simple, elegant, inviting, and connected with nature, with modern yet rustic [ Continue reading ]

House in Mexico by Bernardi + Peschard Arquitectura

The architectural design begins with a central volume that is bigger than the rest; it dialogues with, divides and denotes the uses of the surrounding spaces. It was built as fragments that become a series of independent pavilions, and turn the complex into a beach villa. It leaves behind the massive house constructions in the surrounding area. In a palapa made of natural parota wood, over 10 m high, you find the living/dining room, which makes the transition to the semiprivate and private spaces. This element has a first plane looking into the private beach on the Pacific coast. This area was designed with the idea of making it the common area, the heart of the house, and so it is close to the sea, and has an imposing height and size. Next to this you find the other spaces in rock blocks mixed with wood elements and a palm [ Continue reading ]

Hotels To Stay

Every time I travel somewhere I like to be near the nature, and when I choose a hotel to stay I like it to be as simple as possible, where nature inspires everything, fresh. Hotels are meant to make you feel like home, but they have a lot to do to make you feel cozy and like home. Don’t you ever think that it is easy to decorate/design a hotel.  A personal restaurant it is also a great idea, and so it is the pool. Here are some ideas that I loved about hotel:  

Monchrome Home

Recently, I collected a lot of  photos with monochrome homes and I decided to put a photo with every room in the house and create my own house combining photos from different houses. First of all, I chose this living room, because it is almost all black and intimate. Of couse, I choose an all white bedroom, because you know me, my love for all white rooms. The kitchen is more white, with different textures. All blue for the bathroom, to make me feel like I am beside the ocean every time I have a shower.

What is a Tulou?

A tulou or “earthen building”, is a traditional communal residence found in Fujian Province South China, usually of a circular configuration surrounding a central shrine. Some were constructed out of cut granite or had substantial walls of fired brick The Fujian Tulou is probably the last one, built in 2008 and it looks like this: The Fujian Tulou is including Chuxi tulou group, Tianluokeng tulou cluster, Hekeng tulou cluster, Gaobei tulou cluster, Dadi tulou cluster, Hongkeng tulou cluster, Yangxian lou, Huiyuan lou, Zhengfu lou and Hegui lou, and it is considered  as “exceptional examples of a building tradition and function exemplifying a particular type of communal living and defensive organization in a harmonious relationship with their environment”.   I really like the concept of these buildings, and I heard that it were also made to deposit things, which means they are very spacious. The relationship between people living in that area should be very strong.

Christmas Decoration

December is hereee.. and Christmas is also almost here = THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR. But, what do we love the most about this month? Decorations, of course! I am here again, to help, to advise you about how to decorate your house for Christmas just how I did about Fall Decoration, I will do separate posts for every room of the house. In this post I will show you how to decorate the exterior of the house. Christmas lights are a priority when it comes to decorate your house, so be free and start putting lots and lots of lightings around your windows, your door, and why not roof. For the front door I would like to put a wreath made from pine cones like this one: Beside the lights you can also place some tree garlands,  exactly how you decorate the Christmas tree; If you have [ Continue reading ]

Animal Print Carpet

  Are the carpets with animal prints in fashion again ? It seems so!More persons adopt this type of carpet without feeling bizarre about the way it looks . Personally , I find it gives a tragic image of a dead animal on our floor , it is something that scares me . But if fashion says so .. It may look good to some in a cabin , in front of the fireplace to finish with the idea of ​​a hunting lodge on time. Maybe even a hunting enthusiast would adopt this style. I would not do that. What are  you saying ?

Fall Living Room Decor

For the living room the things are simpler, because the space is bigger and you have enough room to place spacious paints and decors. First of all, I would choose for a custom paint, not too big, but also not to small. *if you want the smaller version you can make more of it; Another good idea is to decorate your own candles and also the table where you put them, use some fake leaves, some colored pinecones, maybe some acorns; The last, but not least idea is to put a cozy blanket on your sofa.
