Barcelona: an inspiring city AND fabric collection

The Mediterranean Sea, one of the most naturally beautiful sites I've seen. 

 I was brought back to this lovely place upon finding the new spring/summer 2010 designer's guild barcelona collection.  The color combos and cool geometric curves, not to mention the collection name, brought me back to the wonderful city of Barcelona, Spain.  My husband and I were given the amazing opportunity to live abroad for 6 months and we were fortunate enough to travel to a few locations, Barcelona being one.  Here's a little of what we saw on our weekend excursion along with some fabric swatches and gallery photos that I hope will bring you to a happy place, as it did me.

Unique rocks washed upon the shoreline.
