Wanda Café Optimista

This has got to be the prettiest café I have ever seen. Wanda Café Optimista is located in Madrid and was designed by Parolio. After the recent years, of recession in Madrid, Parolio wanted to design a place that communicates the opposite: projecting vitality, joy, color and a positive outlook on life. The idea is that when you enter Wanda you enter the emotional universe of vacations, summer, Surf and everything positive you feel on these fun days of the year. Inside Wanda it’s always sunny, there is always a good vibe. That description alone would have me stopping in. The pastel colours with pops of neon, all of the really cute patterned pillows and the amazing pattern on the bar make this such a happy place, where you would never want to take your last sip of coffee.

An eclectic apartment in Madrid

I have a thing for eclectic spaces, where it appears that the homeowner does alot of thrift shopping and most pieces have not originated from Ikea. This simple yet eclectic apartment in Madrid caught my attention. It has some fun, graphic art mixed with mid-century furnishings and accessories (ie. beautiful West German vases!). I personally would have maybe added some colour to a wall or 2 (maybe they aren't allowed) and I find the dining room very underwhelming. Other than that it is a wonderful, bright open space that is very inviting. Via Architectural Digest Spain, photos by Asier Rua.

Openhouse Magazine

There is a new magazine out there and this one should be added to your subscribe list. OPENHOUSE Magazine is a twice yearly publication, that looks to bright, creative people from around the world, that open their homes or their private spaces to the public, to make different activities about gastronomy, art and design. In the current issue we talk to Jermome Waag, head chef at Chez Panisse, about what he likes to cook at home for his friends in his time off. In a small village in the italian countryside, Attillio and Paola live in the old Cinema Flora, and regularly open their doors for film nights. We take a peek into the Freunde von Freunden Apartment in Berlin, that takes shape as an office, event space and a cosy apartment for occasional overnight guests. Amaryllis Jacobs has made her wonderful home in Brussels into a twice yearly gallery space, Maniera, for architect designed pieces.....among others. I especially love this first loft space - the plant filled TV hang out space is amazing!!! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Definitively one to leave out on the coffee table.
