Anna Mårselius

Last summer Jo featured two glorious spaces by Swedish interior stylist and decorator Anna Mårselius. Two photos is not nearly enough to get your feet wet so I thought I would share many more. They are all stunning spaces. (I hate blue and that photo above may have me converted).

Tea with friends

Love this kitchen. I just want to sit and gossip with friends over a cup or two of tea. I found this glorious image in the portfolio of über photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo. She has the knack of releasing the spirit of a room in her shots.

BC+A Architecture 

There is something about a house that lets the view do the talking. A beautiful, black box sits lightly on the steep block. Interiors are kept simple yet stylish. It's the use of glass and of the view that makes this home so special. Positive and negative space. Volumes and voids. Public views and intimate space. A Wellington, New Zealand home renovation by BC+A Architecture.

El Quiosc

It is really unfortunate that Barcelona is no where near Ottawa because I would LOVE to check out this restaurant in person (and maybe even try a burger while I'm there). Alex of Blanco Azabache Interiorismo thought we would like to share this latest project of his with you all. It is a burger joint called EL Quiosc. It is an old house in the center of the town of Mataró (Barcelona) that after abandoning the shoemaker who had his workshop there decided to rent my clients to transform into a gourmet burger, with a industrial retro aesthetics (4 rooms, entrance area + the childs playground). As an aficionado of all things industrial, I love what Alex has done with this space. Lots of rustic and industrial touches with a French and Spanish vibe make this a quirky yet fun and inviting restaurant. There are lots of elements I would love in my own home - from every bit of lighting and seating to the hanging terrariums and tile flooring (YES!).
