The last minute Christmas rush driving you nuts? You know that coffee is a cure-all. I promise. And no one does the coffee/cafe scene better than Melbourne. Mammoth by Technè is one of the latest hot spots.
"The brief was to create a peaceful, happy space that had a nod to subtle reference points including West Coast USA, summer holidays and the aesthetic of Wes Anderson films."
I can definitely see a Euro 80s vibe as well in colours and materials. Very cool spot to escape the shopping crowds ... if only for a little while.
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.
Two Italian families moved from Tuscany, Italy to Perth, Australia with the dream of opening an Italian restaurant. Two Italian bloggers, Elisabetta Rizzato of ITALIANBARK and Simona Nurcato of Bagni dal Mondo helped make this dream a reality by designing and branding what became a fun, inviting Italian restaurant and café called DAVVERO! The interior design - developed on a distance with online basis - is cosy and it mixes Italian and Australian moods in a rustic clean style. A bright space where white and natural wood are the background for the colourful made in italy items sold in DAVVERO!, which besides a restaurant is also a retail space selling Italian original products. The interior furnishing combines many tailor-made furniture pieces, designed in order to get the maximum of the interior layout, with accessories and lighting from ikea (ex. Hektar lamps customized with rope) and from online stores (ex. the Chesterfield style sofa, from an online store selling vintage items).
Now this is the type of office I would be more than happy to work in. Especially when it has an equally fabulous coffee shop below it. Welcome to The Haas Collective in Cape Town South Africa. Haas (the Afrikaans word for "rabbit") was born from the wild ideas, passions and endless conversations of creative minds, Glenn Venter, Francois Irvine and Tess Berlein (and in 2012 Francois De Villiers joined). Their dream was to create a hub and an inspiring space where things of beauty could be featured in all shapes and sizes. But more than that, they wanted to give talented individuals a platform to showcase their work. However, what started out as a home of edgy collectables and one-of-a-kind, quirky art pieces (Haas Design) quickly leaped to Haus Coffee, as the demand for enjoying a cup of coffee, while savouring the beauty and energy of this unusual hub, grew. It didn't stop there though...It also naturally developed into Haas Advertising. Located in a heritage building, it took none months of gutting, unearthing original details and renovating to create this dreamy environment.
