Antonio Martins at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 

I love a show house. They are a dream, a fantasy, a platform for interior designers and decorators to weave their magic. All in the name of beauty. All in the name of style. All in the name of pushing the boundaries. This artful living room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase by Antonio Martins Interior Design is inspired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s expansion. The designer has created a space that celebrates the city’s vibrant creative energy and emphasizes the intersection of art and design. With its white lacquered walls, hot rolled steel floors, curated collection of vintage and cutting edge furniture as well as striking art it's like a beautiful Salon, a meeting place for aesthetes, intellectuals and artists or, in our case, like-minded design lovers. Perhaps if you are in San Francisco you can visit this room and tell me how stunning it is in person. The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is open now through to May 30.

Finca Las Tenadas

I think it's a first. I honestly believe we have never featured an events complex on the blog. It wasn't a hard decision though when the space was designed by Isabel López-Quesada. Just 15 minutes from Madrid, Finca Las Tenadas is a series of barns beautifully redefined by López-Quesada and landscape designer Fernando Martos. A fairytale setting for fabulous functions don't you think? Makes me almost want to get married again ... oops I mean renew my vows.

High House

It may only be 5 metres wide but as the architectural firm Dan Gayfer Design explains it's all about "... a high level of functionality, flexibility, interaction and detail in a house with high ceilings, a high roofline and high levels of natural light." It's also high on style. The perfect partnering of spatial design and good looks. What can I say. It really is a High House.

Sunday at the brewery

Instead of spending a fourth day in a row painting, I am dreaming about being in Stellenboschis, South Africa at this wonderful brewery called Wild Clover. Designed by Inhouse, this brewery also comprises a restaurant and deli and is a really fun space. The central focus of the space is no doubt the brewery itself. This room is sheathed in glass, allowing guests to view the beer-making process, which reinforces the foundations of the brand. manner. The bar and tasting area display impressive design elements such as striking pendant fittings suspended overhead that literally put the location's name up in lights! Guests can make a quick pitstop at the feature bar, which is crafted from timber and edged with beveled tiles, to sample Wild Clover’s special brews. Other design elements contribute to the contemporary aesthetic, such as randomly placed white and grey hexagonal tiles amalgamated into the sealed concrete flooring. Another truly unique feature comprises four floor-to-ceiling Perspex columns, each containing an essential ingredient of beer: yeast, barely, hops and water. To create a sense of privacy, a steel screen was installed to conceal the bathroom doors from the tasting room. The clever use of beer bottles built into this structure further reinforces the brand personality. Additionally, refurbished wine barrel lids are displayed on the wall parallel. The restaurant area is decorated with unusual brass pipe light fittings that heighten the undeniably quirky aesthetic. Brown banquet leather seating offers a comfortable yet stylish zone to enjoy the many delicious delights available from the outlet’s deli and kitchen.
