Barcelona goes pink

Fashionable pink from around Barcelona

Pretty parasol – Carrer del Pi

Lately I have been seeing pink everywhere. In magazines, shops, the clothes that people wear, and it was even the colour of a pretty girl’s hair! Barcelona goes pink too, just check out these snapshots from around town…

Is it me, or is pink in fashion? In any event, and whether you like pink or not, have a wonderful weekend! If you are in Barcelona, enjoy Sónar!

Steep street with stools

On a Carrer Margarit at the base of Montjuïc, there are some interesting hillside views. This part of the street is so steep, that dotted on its sidewalk are a bunch of metal stools, for people to take a seat and catch their breath, as they make their way up to the higher levels of this small mountain.

Pretty in pink

One such stool stands in front of a house, all pretty in pink and covered in pale green sgraffito details plus ditto blinds, that is only two floors high.

Green details

Swirly foliage and pretty flowers grace the walls of this lovely home and the door is daintily carved with ethereal shapes that merely hint at some kind of flowers.

Knock knock

If an invitation isn’t forthcoming, then we can only resign ourselves to enjoy whatever other hillside views this spot has to offer…

Not as pink perhaps, but certainly not too bad either, for in the distance lies a prize: the glorious Sagrada Familia with its turrets and cranes pointing up to the sky.

Dear readers, I have a busy week ahead, with birthday celebrations and visits from family and friends. So I am going to have a mini holiday and enjoy myself and give my loved ones the attention they deserve. But not to worry! I’ll be back on Monday next week, and hope to delight you then with more Barcelona loveliness. Have a great week, everyone!

Jardins del Doctor Fleming

After yesterday’s blackout (I hope the SOPA/PIPA bills are not passed!) I though a bit of colour might be a welcome idea for today’s post. And as I have been seeing pink everywhere (on other blogs, in magazines and on the streets) I thought I’d take you to see some examples of pink around Barcelona.
