Fougaro

Tina from Greece wrote us about a really cool renovation project in Nafplion that she blogged about. It's called Fougaro ("smokestack") - a former pre-WWII tomato cannery that closed in 1956, was bought at an auction in 1997 after 15 years or restoration and renovation, is now a fantastic venue dedicated to art and creativity complete with an Arts & Humanities library, a workshop, a café, a concert hall and, most importantly, an exhibition hall. WOW - what an incredible, inspirational place. (Photos via Yatzer and Fougaro's FB).

Joanna Laajisto

Helsinki based interior architect and designer Joanna Laajisto's philosophy is "not to clutter this world with unnecessary things but to find the hidden beauty of each space and to enhance it by creative solutions." Two inspiring projects. The first Bar&Co, a modern take on a 1920's bistro. Think marble, oak, leather, wrought iron and copper. Love the hand forged copper candle sconces. The second a dark and brooding minimalist home. A modern interior of rich woods and contemporary furniture.

Fish and chips inspiration

So much great design coming from commercial work. So much inspiration. A fish and chip restaurant in Ealing, London has my mind twisting and turning trying to figure out how I'm going to fit these ideas in my home. Fun and functional, young and quirky. Definitely not fusty. Definitely fab. Distressed and industrial, schoolhouse and rustic. Warm timber with bright colour. Love the typography (yes I'm a typo nerd), love the rough planks, the red and blue, the "newspaper" walls, the subway tiles, the lights, love it all. Vibrant new British design. Kerbisher & Malt by Alexander Waterworth Interiors.

Maison Estate

I've booked a table. The one outside under the tree. Food and wine and good company and a heavenly setting. The vineyard, the restaurant and tasting room in a converted farm cottage. Maison Estate at Franschhoek in the Valley of the Huguenots in South Africa. I don't think it can get any better.

A funky restaurant

Hanna from Poland wrote us about her architecture and interior design firm called PB Studio. She thought we'd be interested in this restaurant she designed. We don't typically feature non-residential spaces but I thought the dining space of this restaurant was very inspriring. I adore the over abundance of penadnt lights, and the bench seating with wall-installed cushions is so cool! Would be perfect for a dining nook in a kitchen. The larch wood is gorgeous too!
