Bringing the outside in: San Sebastian


Look at that colour! I promise there was no filter when I took this picture. (and it was a few years ago, before instagram filters became a thing!)

This was taken in San Sebastian in 2009. I have blogged about San Sebastian before here. It was such an amazing place where it seemed like every night the sky was a different colour. You felt like you could just reach out and touch the sunset!

When you are re-decorating your space, or coming up with a creative concept I find that you can always look to the landscape for colour inspiration. I would never really think of putting orange and black together as I prefer more tonal colours, but you can see from this picture of the harbour, that it can really work. It may not be the colour combination that you would use in your sitting room, but the colours would make for a striking studio space!

If you wish to bring any part of the San Sebastian sunset into your place, or  just to be inspired by homewares that you may never have seen before, (I bet you never guessed that item number 2 is wallpaper!) then check out the items above.
