We Moved!

It's been such a long time since I had written in blogger. Sorry for leaving this blog behind, but I have been very busy moving to wordpress and working in my new and improved blog layout.

I decided to combine my Spanish and English versions in the same blog, since it was a lot of work keeping up with both. So, if you want to read my latest post and adventures, be sure to follow me in the new and improved Casa Haus. I'm writing in both English and Spanish, and there's also a Translate button in the top right end of the menu, just in case there's anything you don't understand. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

See you there!

Oh, and remember to follow me in pinterest, twitter and facebook as well!

Enlosocial's First Anniversary

I'm so excited to share with you the latest issue of Enlosocial, the luxury and lifestyle magazine for which I contribute with interior design and architecture articles.


This time, I'm talking about an amazing house in Somosaguas, bu Spanish firm A-Cero Arquitectos.

And then there's of course the deco-trends.

Brands include Casa Midy, Bodie and Fou and Karen Collignon.

This issue came with a great party, since Enlosocial is celebrating its first anniversary. The place:  Scuderia bistro-bar. One of my personal favorites.

So it was a good night, and I feel blessed to be part of it all. Congratulations to Enlosocial!


By the way, we're excited because Enlosocial goes national, starting with Mexico City, Monterrey and Mayan Riviera, besides Guadalajara. However, for all of you outside of Mexico, you can visit Enlosocial's profile in Facebook, where you can even check out complete issues, such as the last one. You can find your way to my collaboration. =)

Have a gorgeous day!

Yellow and Gray Inspiration

I didn't use to like yellow - not for my home, my clothes or even my paintings. I tend to like cooler colors. And yet, I've seen the gray-yellow trend lately and I've got to confess, I love it. I find it quite pleasing, refreshing and balanced. Ranging from dark gray to the lightest one, yellow sparks here and there are the perfect mix to generate gorgeous rooms.

How do you like it?

DIY Projects - Shelves

I love shelves. I think they are very usefull and one of the simplest projects for home decor. Shelves have always been handy but I'm finding them to be very trendy lately as well. Here are some very inspirational pics I've gathered with excellent ideas for diy shelving. It's all about using what you've got, baby. ;)

A few boxes are all it takes for this cute mudroom, via apartment therapy.


Interesting use of pallets, as seen in lubird baby.

Box wines look so different when using gift-wrap paper. These are via design sponge.
Cin decor also shares wine box ideas.

You could also use old drawers. I love how be home made used them in her shop.
And last, but definitely not least, the cutest and most original idea, by sas interiors showing almost any object is good enough for shelves. Gotta love it if you have kids in the house.

So let there be no excuse, this weekend you can make your very own and simple shelves. Please share with us if you try!

A Touch of Violet

Violet  is one of my favorite colors since I can recall. I wasn't a pink gal, I was a purple and lillac lover. However, I just came to realize I generally don't think about lillac for decor. Perhaps it's because it's quite a strong color, and it would easilly get messed up if not used in the right proportions and tones (think girly or tacky). Doing it carefully, though, I think it can be quite a statement.

I know violet is not right for everybody, but what do you think?

My favorite pics:
the happy door (that very violet is amazing)
and the succulents
(see how lovely it goes with turquoise?)

Have yourself a happy day!
