El Quiosc

It is really unfortunate that Barcelona is no where near Ottawa because I would LOVE to check out this restaurant in person (and maybe even try a burger while I'm there). Alex of Blanco Azabache Interiorismo thought we would like to share this latest project of his with you all. It is a burger joint called EL Quiosc. It is an old house in the center of the town of Mataró (Barcelona) that after abandoning the shoemaker who had his workshop there decided to rent my clients to transform into a gourmet burger, with a industrial retro aesthetics (4 rooms, entrance area + the childs playground). As an aficionado of all things industrial, I love what Alex has done with this space. Lots of rustic and industrial touches with a French and Spanish vibe make this a quirky yet fun and inviting restaurant. There are lots of elements I would love in my own home - from every bit of lighting and seating to the hanging terrariums and tile flooring (YES!).

Crab Shack

Something about restaurant and retail design has been pulling me in lately. Inspiration can be found everywhere. It seems I'm still not over the recycled, chippy paint boards trend. The Crab Shack (New Zealand) by HBO+EMTB via the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.

This is a test

I don't really know what to do to make this work, as Squarespace has provided me with zero info over the past 6 days, because they apparently don't know what the problem is either. So I'm hoping if I try creating a post in another browser, magic might happen. And if you can see these photos, by Barcelona design firm Beriestain Interiores, then FANTASTIC!

I'm eating out

Magda of Polish firm 2kul Interior Design emailed us the other day - it had been a while since she shared some of their work with us (check out this home and these apartments). They work on alot of commercial projects as well, and these are 2 restaurants they completed recently. This first one is a Vegan restaurant in Wrocław called Machina Organika - the tile is gorgeous, and I love the wooden beamed ceiling, adorable wire pendant shades and black painted arches.

Oh deer!

Are you over the deer trend yet? I thought I was. Then I saw this. Majestic beast! From the portfolio of stylist Lyndell Miller. Lyndell is a food stylist (try not to lick the screen when you are over on her website) but she also has a fabulous portfolio of cafe/restaurant images. That's where I found Mr Deer oh dear!
