Barcelona, what a city! Warm, vibrant, a feast for the eyes. Gaudy's architecture and influence on every corner. I marvelled at the richness of the architecture and thought that had gone into everything from the tiles that paved the city to the many uniquely decorated entrances. Gothic and Modernisme sitting side by side, contrasts and contradictions that worked somehow.
The colours were delicious too and prompted this second travel influenced blog post that seeks to inspire you to bring a little of Barcelona's verve and striking juxtaposition to your home.
