I'm trying to catch up with everything, comments, bills, laundry, home organization, kids going back to school, and so many other things before I begin working on some projects I need to tackle.
That's why today I'm sharing with you some pics I took while vacationing at Bogota - Colombia. I just finished taking them off from my computer, but I couldn't leave them sitting there!
I gave you a small glimpse of the Spanish Style in my previous post about windows. But there are many historic neighborhoods in Bogota where I could admire this style. Houses that have been turned around into businesses, government sites or simply tourist destinations, they are all tied by the same: the Spanish style.
Like in this two story house, now used by the government.
I already told you how much I love those terracotta tile roofs like in this tourist destination house.
A plain old church with its arched doorway.
Streets lined on each side with houses full of personality.
Porches are another of my favorites.
Windows and doors with iron grills.
This next house is now used as a music shop in the Usaquen area.
The passing of time is evident in this old La Candelaria neighborhood.
I love the intricate detail in this wooden door.
Another door with different but beautiful details.
Most of the houses are white, but that doesn't mean you can't go purple or any color you like!
I close my post with these two entrances, aren't they wonderful?
