We don't always feature hospitality design on Desire to Inspire but when there are so many ideas that can translate easily to a smaller, more intimate domestic space then we just have to share. I'm dipping into the portfolio of Sydney design firm Alexander & CO again. Their design for The Sunset Room at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is as beautiful as it is functional. Coastal chic mixed with the found and the vintage all with a limited palette layered with texture. Colour provided by flowers and foliage in bright green demijohns draws the eye from space to space. Talk about getting inspiration down at the pub.
FLO: (noun.) The state of mind, process, or way of being abundantly present. Located in Long Beach, California, FLO Design Studio specializes in restaurants, spas and boutique hotels and residences, and can spruce up any one of those in mid-century, industrial, hollywood regency style and make it work. Megan, principal designer/partner is known for her ability to combine global glamour with spiritual edge. Megan's designs focus on the integration of vivid emotional and visual texture. Her indoor and outdoor spaces incorporate powerful mid-century lines, geometry, sculptural and organic forms and materials, and are influenced by the multi-ethnic pulse that is one of the defining characteristics of Los Angeles.
Let's meet up for a coffee. Perhaps a little cake? I'd love to while away an hour or two gossiping and grazing at the The Stables of Como. We'll be tempted by the gardens and the historic Como House but you know what, I think I'd rather sit and catch up with you in these cute cafe surroundings. We can always come back and do a house tour another day.
A huge thanks to David Zafra for sending us these photos of Restaurante Sexto in Madrid. David is responsible for the interior design and I can honestly say it's one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever seen. The neutral colour palette is so soothing and his selection of modern seating is perfection. If the décor is this amazing the food must be heavenly!
