My friend Lavanga just returned from a jaunt about Spain, where she and her renowned typographer husband looked at beautiful things, searched for vegan restaurants and basically set the cities aflame with Ken’s baffling lettering expertise.
From the looks of Lavanga’s Facebook photos, the two fell in love all over again at Casa Milà, an early 20th century building designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí–my new dead crush. And who wouldn’t? The place is a dream of organic curves and gothic grandeur.
Although I never get to go anywhere, I was touched that Lavanga thought of me while standing in Gaudi’s kitchen, surrounded by swathes of white marble, plain tile and simple spigots. What to speak of the charm of the bread box!
Lavanga’s pictures of La Pedrera, as Gaudi’s apartment building is more commonly known, are a great resource for anyone interested in seeing the beauty of old white marble countertops. Enjoy!
