Story

Time to take some inspiration from our favourite Finnish interior architect Joanna Laajisto and one of her latest projects, Story, in the Old Market Hall, Helsinki. There are so many ideas to steal from this space. Love the lighting including the old fish trap installation, the colour combinations, the paint with trim finishing part way up the wall, the vertical herringbone tile and the brass kick plate to pick up on a few. As much as the photos really, really make me want to try a meal at Story, they make me start rethinking my kitchen even more.

Cicero

Tommaso Guerra contacted us about his newest interior design project and I absolutely love it and had to share. This can easily translate into designs for the home so get your imaginations going!

A bistro in the heart of Prati district in Rome, open from the early morning until late night:
pastel colours, light wood and colourful fabrics with varied fantasies.
A marriage between nature and serenity.
I figured that going at "Cicero" might be an harmony and finesse experience;
a beautiful space to live, in Nordic atmosphere.
Sitting in a under a large mid-air nest;
enjoying lunch as in a forest, between wood birds houses;
looking up and discovering 55 shades falling out...
The mature interpretation of fairy tale, the inspiration becomes game.
Welcome to "Cicero".

Friday night drinks

Heading out for some well deserved Friday night drinks. The hair comes down and the heels go up. Just because it's time to party after a hard week at work doesn't mean the design inspiration has to stop. There are plenty of ideas to steal from Singapore based The Stripe Collective's redesign and rebranding of Oxwell & Co. Striped back to the bare bones interiors, split treatments on the floors, Victoriana chic and a dash of quirk. Join me for drinks?

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.
