Happy Friday, everyone! The weekend is here, and I am in the mood for some fun. So how about I leave you with some blinds with personality? Some show cartoon characters, while others feature those well-known from real life or fiction…
Carrer Junta de Comerç
Carrer Martinez de la Rosa
… and some are just made up for the occasion. In any case, I hope you like them! Have a great weekend!
Umbrellas and parasols – Carrer Riera Alta
Happy Monday, everyone! I have a busy day ahead, so I’m going to keep this short but sweet… just wanted to share a handful of beautiful blinds with you, that were made with the purpose of selling during closing hours.
Thick, hot chocolate – Carrer Banys Nous
A great and very simple way to advertise one’s wares with the blinds down, don’t you think? Plus, it adds some interest to the streets when shops are closed.
Jewellery – Carrer Banys Nous
Oh, and nice art work to boot! Always a welcome thing on a Monday morning – it helps brighten up my day… I wish you all a great start to the week!
Men’s shoes – Carrer Banys Nous
Carrer Martínez de la Rosa
Vroom vroom! Are you ready for a new week? I am, and yes, I’m back! Have a good one everyone!
Carrer Doctor Dou
Mae and her admirers – Carrer Pas de l’Ensenyaça
Happy Monday! Let’s kick some … this week, shall we? I’m in that kind of mood. Luckily, I have some images to go with that, images of blinds that were painted by Kenor and his pal Pez (you know, the one who does the grinning fishes). But these blinds are not just any old blinds, no! They belong to a shop on Carrer Ferran that specialises in all things martial arts. Just the thing for me, right now…
Blue garb vs black belt – Carrer Ferran
Pretty cool, aren’t they, these blinds? There’s more!
Funny how you can walk past things and not see them, and then suddenly ‘discover’ them, right? Well that happened to me, when I recently discovered 2 gorgeous birds and 1 diamond. Total stroke of luck. And having my eyes wide open, of course!
Steve did a great job
The 2 gorgeous birds can be found on the blinds of Caravelle (when it isn’t open, naturally – so that means during the night and on Mondays) and were created by Steve Cross.
A tooting horn and a drink on ice – Carrer de la Mercé
From dusty blinds and a rusty door, I bring you music for your eyes. Drink it in and let is soothe your soul while you imagine the tunes to go with the images…
Soulful recordings – Carrer d’Ataulf
Is it working? If not quite yet, there’s more…
Blush – Carrer d’en Tarrós
Two tone. A term I haven’t heard in a while, but that I feel is appropriate to give this selection of painted blinds a common denominator.
One eyed girl – Carrer Lluis Vives
I hope you like these two pretty girls (above), the image of paradise (below)…
Hair and beauty – Carrer d’en Bot
More and more shops and other businesses are having their blinds painted as a way to advertise, but especially to avoid tags and graffiti. Many blinds depict images of ladies, so I thought I’d share a selection with you today. Here goes: blind ladies…

Baixada de Viladecols
Today, I feel like sharing something quite special with you: painted blinds and shutters. But not just just any old paint, these paintings were commissioned, and so the result is a series of artful shutters. Enjoy!
Carrer Canvis Nous
That the humble blind can be a thing of beauty is a fact, here in Barcelona, and today I am going to show you a few examples of blind beauty.
