Lisbon /// Charm
This charm is designed by Ruby And Roses Yarn and created by the talented Katy of Lach And Lou. I designed this progress keeper to go with my Streetcar Colorway and Sock Set, but it pairs so well with many others in my Yarn-ary Islands Collection. This charm is inspired by Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, which is renowned for its vibrant and colorful architecture.
Wandering through Lisbon's neighborhoods, I was captivated by the kaleidoscope of colors that line the city streets. From pastel pinks to sunny yellows, deep blues to earthy oranges, the city's architecture creates a visually stunning panorama.
One of the notable features of Lisbon's colorful architecture is the presence of azulejos, traditional Portuguese ceramic tiles. These tiles often depict intricate patterns, scenes from historical events, or beautiful geometric designs.
The colors of Lisbon's architecture are not only visually appealing but also serve a practical purpose. The vibrant facades help to reflect sunlight, keeping the buildings cooler during hot summer days. This clever combination of aesthetics and functionality is a testament to the city's ingenuity and artistic spirit.
