Italian colour riot

I'm on a mission, a colour mission and the interwebs have taken me to La Minervetta Maison, a boutique hotel in Sorrento, Italy. With a decorating style not for the faint hearted it draws its inspiration from fishing villages and all things nautical, the Memphis movement and the whole 80s vibe. Fun and in your face it's the perfect spot for one piece swim suits, floaty kaftans, incredibly large floppy straw hats, platform espadrilles and enough gold jewellery to drown you in the crystal blue Mediterranean Sea. Part theatre and movie set, part Italian maximalism. But sadly my quest continues for the ultimate colour overload. As much as the hotel makes me want to whistle Neapolitan love songs there are still all those white walls.

Take it as "red"

You can definitely take it as read that I love this modern kitchen by Belgian architects B-Bis. The use of primary colours and plywood to delineate the modern insertions within this historic shell is fun and fresh. Not sure that I could do my makeup in the yellow bathroom though. Perhaps it's a bachelor pad?

Pix Pintxos

Perhaps an all-black home is too much.....but for a bar it is a totally rad colour choice. This tapas bar in London was designed by Duck & Shed. Dark and moody and with accents of deep red it is slightly goth and totally HOT.

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.

A la SHED transformation

Montreal architecture firm la SHED continues to make magic happen and this renovation is indeed magical. They transformed a typical Quebec duplex into a single family home that is modern, bright, spacious and a great home to raise a family in. Light woods, a simple and open kitchen layout, double height ceiling, a courtyard and accents of red together make this really special. (I featured their work last year too).
