Sunday at the bar

What do you do when you have a commercial space with double height windows along 2 sides? Fill it with plants and go tropical!! Bar Botanique - Café Tropique in Amsterdam is one of the coolest bars I have ever seen. Shades of green and salmon with accents of yellow and blue, it is an absolutely beautiful hangout day or night.

Flatiron Loft

At first I was drawn by the large windows. Then I realised they had be picked out in black paint to contrast with the grey walls only to have it dawn on me that it was grey plaster beautifully polished on those walls. Momentarily distracted by the black chandelier hanging from the ceiling my gaze settled on the wood floors. Speaking of floors did you see the floor tiles? Tiles? OMG the powder room and that kitchen and the archway with the cat. Stop it! That bathroom is outrageous. Flatiron loft by Frances Mildred.

A brightly coloured condo by Brio Interior Design

I am completely smitten with this Seattle apartment designed by Brio Interior Design. Such fun bright colours in unique conbinations and a midcentury vibe. The clients of this newly built high rise unit only had a few requests when hiring brio interior design to complete the bare bones, empty interior from scratch. The palette should include green and ivory, the art should be local, the sofa must be “nap-able” and there must be a king size bed in the owner’s suite with an upholstered headboard. We chose to infuse the sterile interior with bold color, lush texture, one of a kind custom furnishings and plenty of velvet. The space features artwork by locals including Deanne Belinoff and Paul Edmondson as well as the fine craftsmanship of local woodworkers and furniture makers who built the custom sofa, wall bed/desk, headboard and living room built-ins right here in lovely Seattle.

Sunday at the barbershop

I love my hair stylist, but he works out of a rowhouse he owns that he never really decorated and is waiting for an offer so he's not putting any money into it. Because I spend at least 2 hours a day there every 8 weeks, it would be a much more pleasant experience if it looked as awesome as this barbershop (but he often brings his dogs, so that makes up for the lack of design). One Love Barbershop in Nice, France was designed by Baldini Architecture and I adore the somewhat random and dark colour palette. That shade of green is delish.

An eclectic home by Maurice Gadson

A random mix of colours, fabrics, patterns and furnishings in this quirky Los Angeles home designed by Zenzi Gadson and Justin Maurice (of Maurice Gadson). That green vinyl material on the dining chairs is so unexpected and totally rad, and I love how they've taken a large open-concept area and carved our 4 individual spaces whilst maintaining a level of airiness.
