Good eats and good design

We received an email and photos from Ria about Barcelona Atlanta - a new Spanish tapas and wine bar in the Atlanta neighborhood of Inman Park and was just named as one of the best bars in America in Travel & Leisure Magazine. Ria's boss, Sasa Mahr Batuz, is the Creative Director and unlike other restaurants, he's involved in every process of designing the restaurants (there are several, located throughout Connecticut from the greater New York region to West Hartford and New Haven). The decor is out of this world - I love absolutely every inch. I would not even care what the food tasted like (as long as they had a decent red wine anyway).

Nicola Marc

I have been a big fan of Montreal-based Nicola Marc's styling for years, since I first started religiously reading shelter magazines. She has worked for all of my favourite magazines (all of which I have/had subscriptions for) like Canadian Home & Country, Canadian House & Home, Style At Home, Chocolat etc. Needless to say her portfolio is filled with gorgeously styled spaces that are without a doubt magazine worthy.

New from Domus Nova (#3)

This is the last home for today from Domus Nova, and seems to be the least oddball of the bunch. Except it has a large hippo bar in the living room....and a quirky Ron Arad Paperdelle bronze chair (that's like a chair and a runner in one!) near the front door....and a weird porthole thing in the floor with matching skylight....
