Colmado – beauty in abundance

Colmado = abundant

Serendipity took me there, to Carrer Brosoli 5 in El Born. To Colmado, a lovely corner shop that sells exquisite clothes and accessories, both to enhance your appearance, as well as your home. Colmado – beauty in abundance. The beautiful lettering on its windows caught my eye…

Delightful display

… and then I spotted the simply goooorgeous display units on their wall, made from wooden clothes hangers, and it was love. Pure love. As pure as the silk and other natural fibers that the clothes at Colmado are made of.

As enchanting as Colmado‘s accessories, as wonder-inducing as their stackable plates + bowls sets that, when stacked, magically convert to Asian style urns. As warm and welcoming as the friendly shop-owner, who also makes pretty jewelry which is displayed on the tables in the window, as well as simply cut garments hanging along the wall…

It was love at first sight, and I am hoping for a looong and satisfying relationship to ensue. Colmado was opened just a few weeks ago, on a spot that had been in disuse for many years. They deserve to be successful, for they have chosen their selection well, based on quality, excellent workmanship and good taste. Check out the Colmado blog for information about the brands they sell and the philosophy behind them, and their Facebook page for updates and news. You can also follow them on Instagram, and of course just pop into the shop if you’re in Barcelona!
