Hats off to that wall

Straw hat on coat hanger
Hey there! How’s 2016 going? I hope everything is good whether you’re freezing in the Northern Hemisphere or sweating in the South like me. Here the city is less crowded and everything seems to be a little bit slower. So I tend to daydream about beach houses and, actually, anything beach related. That’s how I noticed this trend of straw hats hanging from white walls. May be it’s not new or not even a trend at all, but it’s a fun way of displaying a hat collection and liven up a blank wall.

frame wall

Young House Love

I’m thinking about creating a frame wall in our living room, including photos, travel memorabilia, postcards and may be a poster too. As usual, thanks to Pinterest I’ve found some fun ideas: printed photographs (some lomos would be great!) or old maps with quotes photoshopped or handwritten, typewritten quotes, or just buying an already made poster with lyrics from a great song on it. I hope I can soon show you our wall of fame!

Estoy pensando en hacer un pared con marcos en nuestra sala de estar, que tenga fotos, recuerdos de viajes, postales, y también algún poster. Como siempre, gracias a Pinterest encontré unas ideas muy divertidas: fotos impresas (unas lomo quedarían geniales!) o mapas viejos con leyendas en Photoshop o a mano, citas escritas a máquina, o comprar el poster ya hecho, con un fragmento de una gran canción. Espero pronto poder mostrar el resultado de nuestra wall of fame!

Tents and forts and nooks

I have some issues when sleeping. Actually is just a matter of layout. I need to be as far as possible from the bedroom door, and as close as possible to a wall. I assume that it has to do with the bedroom I shared with my sisters growing up. My bed was facing the door, and I could see the shadows of people (sisters, Mom) coming through the door when the light was off, and it scared me a little. So I would face the wall and sometimes sneak my face in the tiny space between the bed and the wall. Pretty crazy, I know. The thing is that I’ve always dreamed of sleeping in indoor tents and forts and nooks, anything that could ‘protect’ me. Here are a few lovely ones I found around the web:
Tengo algunos problemas a la hora de dormir. En realidad es sólo una cuestión de distribución. Necesito estar lo más lejos posible de la puerta y lo más cerca posible de una pared. Supongo que tiene que ver con el dormitorio que compartía con mis hermanas cuando era chica. Mi cama estaba justo frente a la puerta, y podía ver las sombras de quienes entraban al cuarto (mis hermanas o mi Mamá) cuando las luces estaban apagadas, y me daba un poco de miedo. Entonces me acostaba mirando a la pared y a veces metía la cara en el espacio entre la pared y la cama. Bastante loco, ya sé. La cosa es que siempre soñé con dormir en carpas, chozas y rincones, cualquier cosa que pueda “protegerme”. Aquí hay algunos divinos que encontré por ahí:
