Photograph of Chotda, on flickr Ordering a bookcase, even if it seems like it, is not an easy task. Normally we have to decide whether to prioritize aesthetics, or give it to functionality.

Green & Clean is the practical guide for all fans of "eco or ecological cleanings". In Decoesfera we have already shown on more than one occasion our [concern to achieve a cleaning of the home not only efficient but ecological] (It can be cleaned and disinfected without ammonia.

For many the decoration is to hang a simple picture or redecorate a dining room, for others the decoration is much more than that. This is the case of Tatiana Langdon Usera designer and interior designer, born in London and daughter of an antiquarian mother. Tatiana Langdon moves in the business world of textile-focused decoration and has worked with large foreign firms from Spain.
It is not the first time we have published solutions for the books that fill our house. The inveterate readers are always looking for ways to have the books in order in more or less accessible places, easy to clean and to find the title you want. As the need sharpens ingenuity, half-world designers have got to work and designed authentic works of art to store books and also be decorative.
I bet some of you have already started writing or at least you have started to think about what you are going to ask this year in your letter to the Magi. I always have the same problem, I can think of too many ideas and I have trouble deciding which ones to stay with ... If the same thing happens to you today I will make it even more difficult, with the book I teach you today and that I am sure that will already become part of your wish list.
It is true that with the access to the Internet and the number of apps about decoration, we increasingly buy fewer decoration books. I don't know if this happens to you, but when I see so many images in so many different Blogs and pages, I often ask myself: where did I see it? In addition, I recognize that I like the paper and see the details a thousand times and it is not the same, so I love buying decoration books and taking advantage of the offers that January offers us with the sales I am going to comment on what books I have seen that They are worth it.
Many of us were waiting for today to arrive to finally see all the prices for Spain in the new IKEA 2015 catalog. Actually, we have already studied the collections and new ideas because we have seen them in the US catalog and we have broken them down into sections: living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and children, but we still had to know what they were going to cost us Furniture and accessories in Spain.
Where your day to day begins What promised is debt Ikea said that its new catalog for 2015 would be online from July 24 and so it is, we already have it available in its US version in English and Spanish. They are a total of 326 pages until reaching the final index, which includes all the news that we have already talked about in previous days at Decoesfera and more.
A few days ago we talked about the novelties that the IKEA 2015 Catalog would bring us and that we knew thanks to Apartment Therapy, but now we can speak with knowledge of cause because we already have in our hands all the novelties that will be included in the new catalog. The IKEA 2015 catalog will be divided into five sections, as usual: bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, kitchens and children.
This week the International Book Day was celebrated, surely you bought the odd day, and to make a small tribute to such a relevant day I propose five beautiful ways to order your books and magazines in your home. From putting them on the floor neatly to create your own reading space, a small sanctuary, to line the walls of your entire house from top to bottom of books, or how to take advantage of a small corner and turn it into the most intimate library you have ever seen.
When the other day I showed you the beautiful illustrations of Oren Sherman, one of our usual commentators, Parafinuca, mentioned that he seemed influenced by Richard Neutra, and he was not missing reason, because consulting between my books it turns out that they are based on drawings and photographs of the Case Study Houses, which we can find in this essential book.
Despite having done architecture, freehand drawing has never been my forte. Perhaps that is why I admire those people so much that they show a special talent in this difficult art, and if there is someone who stands out above all of them it is Robinson, a 60s German illustrator author of wonders like Paris line by line (Paris line by line).
Modernism was an artistic trend that toured Europe during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries under various names, such as Art Nouveau or Jugendstil, depending on the country and language. It was a new art, transgressive and free, but at the same time democratic, guided by the ideas of John Ruskin and William Morris.
Onion paper (also known as vegetable paper) is probably the best friend of every architect, designer or decorator worth his salt. It allows you to draw what you have in mind on a plane, an image or an earlier sketch, without spoiling the original drawing. That is why Trace is the definitive iPad application for sketching, because it faithfully recreates the uses we give to our beloved translucent paper.
The truth is that I don't know why there is always such a stir when the Ikea 2013 catalog is finally available in Spain. It is probably, of all the decoration brands, the catalog that brings less news, since that is precisely one of the maxims of the Swedish giant, few products, well designed.
As every year one of the most anticipated decoration publications in the summer is the new Ikea catalog. The catalog of the well-known furniture firm for 2013 is now available for consultation and is also loaded with news. When July arrives we are all expectant to know what new trends it incorporates and with what proposals it surprises us.
Although computer science has revolutionized the world of architecture in recent decades, greatly facilitating the task of drawing plans and calculating structures, there is something that will never be lost: the sketch. And that is precisely what these monographs about Moleskine architecture are full of.
Once the first section of Christmas has passed, and the gifts that Santa Claus, Santa Claus, Tió de Nadal or Olentzero have brought us, depending on the country or region of Spain where we are, now we have to think about the shopping for the Magi. For me, lover of both things, books and decoration, there is no better gift than a good decoration book.
Lately, I am taking pleasure in the communist constructivism of the mid-twentieth century, which today I bring you a new sample with the photographic book Spomenik, which portrays the most cosmic Yugoslavia, even more so than in CCCP, photographed communist cosmic constructions, which is already tell. Photographer Jan Kempenaers has toured the former Yugoslavia to offer us these beautiful images of the buildings and sculptures erected during the communist era in the Balkan country.
A few weeks ago from Ikea they sent me a book of their own edition dedicated to the world of fabrics: "Passion for fabrics." It is a volume of 180 pages and an average size, in which initially I expected to find listings and lists of fabrics classified by type. But nothing is further from that, it is a book that poses a passionate behavior and to some extent anarchic in our relationship with the tissues, as this quote suggests: Colors and patterns are like energy drinks for the soul.
In the first half of the twentieth century, while in Europe the Modern Movement flourished with Le Corbusier and other great architects, a much more radical movement, constructivism, emerged from the Soviet Union, whose most prominent figures I remember The Lissitzky and Konstantin Melnikov.
