Casapinka: A House in Translation
Today brings the launch of a new blog: Casapinka - A House in Translation. Casapinka is a collaboration between Pink of Pink Mohair and Anna Spiro of Black & Spiro and of Absolutely Beautiful Things.
Pink has decided her house needs a bit of a facelift, and that the best designer to help her with this would be Anna. Rather an adventurous choice, in that Pink (and of course her house) are in the United States, while Anna lives in Australia. The two plan to work together across the more than 9,000 miles that separate them, and will do so without having ever met!
The blog will follow the two of them as the design proceeds, sharing their collaboration, frustrations, miraculous discoveries, and all that goes into a project like this. Watching a house redesign would be fun in its own right (ok, I'm addicted to HGTV), and watching them work together across the miles is bound to spice things up.
Reader involvement will be included in the project, and in fact already has been as the name of the blog came from a contest among their readers. I love the name they've chosen, despite the fact that none of my entries ("A Milieu Miles Away," "A Pigment of Our Imagination") was chosen. (I do, of course, remain available to consult on new blog names, and my fee is quite reasonable, I assure you.)
Best of luck to Pink and Anna, and let the games begin!
