As Promised!! Here goes the video in which I really had to add a little humour, there is no other way to look at it. It took me much more than a minute, altought sometimes I really think I should get a real life fast forward button, still have not found that on Amazon!
Anyways, I thought that the livingroom needed a refresh. I love this room, as it is almost like being outside in the porch, but you’re not. This is the home of quite a lot of children, all sorts of pets and many friends (grown-ups kids, family) pop in from everywhere and anythime, and I love that. And this coffee table can get out of control from time to time.
The main thing was to be fast, freshen up, and give my 3 sculptures the place they deserved, so I found that coordinating two colors, in this case I went for blue and green, as I’m surrounded (literally) by green and also blue (for some reason, I have this obesssion with blue) … so, for that, what I decided was to edit my books, and bring inside some succulents from the porch, all those that had nicer pots, of course, and placed them on the middle of table, kind of chidren proof.
The result was great, and I realized that I should have done this before.
I want to say something about books. There are fundamental in life in every sense of the word. They carry someones hours of thoughts and heart, the covers will lighten up a room. I personally love books, reading about gardens, architechture, or artists works and looking at their images is so enriching. Just having them there will eventually make you look inside and cultivate you. Enjoy a cup of tea and open your mind, don’t be afraid to get big heavy books, about art, architecture, fashion, or photography, think of it as an investment. They will imedately add life to your living room.

About the Coffee table and furniture
regarding this table, and the sculpture I have behind me, they were custom made by my amazingly talented younger brother EDUARDO BLAQUIER who I’m so proud of. He also did some work for us at the stables that I will show in future posts, so keep coming back and you’ll see.
Object of inspiration
Take a look at the process… it was fun playing around at home.
