When you in Barcelona there are some MUSTS that you have to accomplish! Nix and I were so fortunate that we were able to check our must visits in one day! We woke up bright and early as there was so much on our to do list! First stop was Vincons http://www.vincon.com I really love this lifestyle store as it is filled with so much well curated pieces and objects the would make any design aficionado drool with delight.

After lunch we headed over to Candy’s store and workshop called Tabula. Candy and her team restores and creates furniture. Tabula brings out the beauty of wood and the time old traditions of classic furniture making. It is so inspiring to be inside a workroom as you can see process of creation. To be able to see this kind of environment is really inspiring. I kept on taking lots of photos. It was as if I was in a still life painting. Tabula sells one of kind pieces and they ship world wide.

Seeing Barcelona at dusk is always a dream so Candy took me to Montuic or the mountain of the Jews which has amazing views of the city. Coming to see the city come alive as day turns into night is really fabulous. I think this was really a fabulous treat. I loved seeing the Barcelona port as the views were fabulous. We then moved down to have a pre dinner drink a the W hotel! I have always loved the cool vibe of the W and the Barcelona property did not fail to entice. we headed outside to take a look at the cool terrace and then went straight up to the top floor for a cocktail or two. All in all I think we did a cover quite a lot of ground that day and it felt good that we were able to see so much and really get our creative juices filled.
