A restaurant for the dogs

I LOVE this restaurant by Polish interior design firm 2kul! Restaurant is called Lord and idea of an Investor was to make English type pub in Poland. Name sound quite serious, but we do not want to scary people with too elegant, too luxury place so we invited our good friend artist Joanna Burda, who painted a whole family of aristocratic ... dogs - a little less serious :) Dark, dramatic dining rooms have always been a favourite of mine, so imagine some heavy velvet drapes, tufted leather chairs, a blingy chandelier and a huge dog portrait like these - I love that Weimeraner below.

Happy Friday!

Finally a break from craft & antique shows this weekend. I cannot wait for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, some movies with the husband and the cat herd, and unfortunately, getting ready for winter (BOO!!!). Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. To get things started, here are a couple of photos that had me mesmerized over on KK Living

Light and shade

Dual colour palettes of inky, moody blues contrasting with browns and creams and bright white with soft pastels define the private and public, the formal and the casual areas of this beachside house by Sydney-based interior designers Arent & Pyke. A mix of modern with mid century classics, tribal and texture, light and shade, the look is an easy elegance.

Night

The master of light and shade, interior designer Michael Dawkins, crafts beautifully layered, sophisticated interiors. This New York apartment is moody, dark and delicious, a chiaroscuro retreat high in a Gotham City tower.

A second look

I get excited when I come across photos of a home we have featured, but a different rendition. It's interesting to see how homes evolve with with time. This is the home of Spanish decorator Serge Castella, that Jo featured back in 2012. This time around it is more grey than brown, and a bit darker overall. I think I prefer this version, as I am a sucker for grey and black.
