Let’s Get Personal in Spain with Eva Monleón : Misako Mimoko
S:: Spanish is… fun, light, bright colors, food… not taking life very seriously.
P:: projects I like to work on are… Embroidery with wool, like crewel and needlepoint. That’s what I’m smitten by now, I’m testing new stitches and making lots of samples for my embroidery workshops at Duduá and Casa Sagnier.
A:: art in my home is from… street and flea markets, I have many found objects. Lovely pieces made by friends and gifts from Lili Scratchy, Hey Sosi, Missy Kulik, Bukubuku, Gina Namkung… and by my partner Gabriel Corbera.
We also have many reproduction prints of our favorite paintings.
N:: new in my home is… (are) a lovely ceramic planter that was a birthday gift from my friends Le Petit Pot and Maelström. And also Ferdinand, our new broccoli boy cushion! Another present from Alícia Rosselló.
S:: style means… not to care about style.
H:: home is… my personal and secret world… just like heaven.
H:: hobby, I always make time for… walking, I love to walk.
O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear is… a bag, I feel lost without it. Sometimes I use a big backpack to wear all the things I need, or a cute handbag just to have something to hold in my hands and to carry keys, wallet and cell phone.
M:: magazines I love to read are… papier mache, Apartamento, Lula, Anorak, Kireei magazine, El Costurero, Sweet Paul, Doolitle… and the Chinese little thing, but in this case, as I don’t know chinese, I just enjoy the images.
E:: enjoy, I can't live without… sunlight and nature.
