Beautiful artwork - especially against the matte dark grey walls. (Nomads apartment Berlin)
I could sit in this restaurant for hours and drink myself silly. Cool atmosphere. (Themroc)
Most creative TV stand for a bedroom EVER. (25 Hours Wien Hotel)
Fun DIY for a headboard in a boys room. (Superbude Hotel)
I have not been this enthralled with a photographer who shoots commercial spaces in a long time, but Steve Herud is a genius when it comes to capturing funky restaurants, hotels and rental apartments. These spaces are gorgeous despite being commercial, and provide tons of inspiration for residential applications. (These photos include Hotel Superbude, Pappa e Ciccia restaurant, No Fire No Glory coffee shop, the FvF + Vitra apartment, Hotel Das Stue, 25 Hours Wien Hotel)

Since we seem to be on a roll with commercial spaces today, here is another one that was sent to us recently by G-sign, a small design studio in Moscow that specializes in branding and commercial design. This restaurant called Funny Cabany is so cool - I adore the centre tiled cube (the kitchen?), the use of reclaimed wood and industrial light fixtures, and OHHH those brown leather chairs!
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.
