Sunday at the racetrack

NAP is based in Poland and creates fabulous home furnishings that can be purchased online and through 6 brick and mortar shops (they also sell some really great brands like Artemide, Lampe Gras, Gubi and Tom Dixon). They recently started dabbling in interior design and their first project was the decor of a racetrack in Warsaw, located in a modernist building built in 1939. In 2 months they outfitted a 3 level, 1500 sq m area consisting of bars, restaurants and lounge areas. Not only are the furnishings gorgeous (NAP, Gubi, Tom Dixon and Zoffana wallpaper), but I love that they dug through archive photos of the building in an attempt to replicate the interiors as they would have been back in the 40's. Art deco design at its finest.

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.

Working on a Saturday

I could have almost called this one "Hanging out on a Saturday" because I'd love to be doing that right now. But if you do have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it is somewhere this stylish. Dr. Smood in Miami by Quincoces-Dragò & Partners.

The Gaztelur in France

Gaztelur is a restaurant / flower shop / antique shop / banquet hall and one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever seen. Designed by Marta de la Rica, it is an eclectic blend of vintage pieces from just about every era making each space refreshingly unique. I am in awe of the original architectural details that lend such a stunning backdrop to the furnishings and those incredible chandeliers.

Oxford Larder

Don't get me wrong. I love the rain. After all, the summer has been so dry and these blustery showers are welcome. It's just that I'm racing home from work, side stepping puddles and cursing my cheap and inadequate umbrella. AND I need to find something for dinner. If only I had a cute little larder cafe around the corner from where I live. Something just like this. Dinner sorted and I can fit in a coffee and perhaps a slice of chocolate and pear cake while waiting for the latest shower to pass. Any excuse to linger just a little longer in this stylish little space. (Love that sink set up by the way.) Oxford Larder by Pipkorn & Kilpatrick.
