sur la table

and now......where do we put all the tables?
Placing coloured buttons to figure out where and how many tables we have on the first floor of vonblum. Our tables are not as colourful as these, but our chairs will be :)

Sunday FUN

Today is Sunday, in Barcelona the sky is grey and it seems like it might rain any minute now.
As we go through all our paperwork, we decided to share some different paperwork with you.
Follow us to the website from David Balihar to make your own Dirkon pinhole camera.
Enjoy and let us know how it went.

searching for chairs

we are currently on the lookout for chairs.
Through the streets of Barcelona, the flea market in encantes and of course also through internet marketplaces
our idea is to have a colourful and eclectic mix of them.
If you have any left around or you find one around Barcelona do let us know!
vonblum is going to open in 2 weeks.

teacups, mugs or what?

How do you like your coffee? or even your tea?
a dash of milk? lots of frothy milk?
two extra strong shots of coffee?
All the different ways of drinking our hot drinks.
Followed by the other question... mug, a tall glass or a old a fashioned cup and saucer.

With all this in our mind we are figuring out which diversity of cups, mugs etc we will be using
in vonblum.

This is our latest dilemma - any suggestions?

colours on the wall

We chose the paint colours for our walls
the top color on the left will be on the columns and 3 walls,
and the middle colour on the bottom is our predominant colour.

vonblum in white

Now the walls are all white, tomorrow we will be testing the other wall colour possibilties.
well actually, other shades of white.
What will bring colour and life into vonblum will be the beautiful products, the food and YOU.
