Dining on a Sunday

Tonight I am having dinner at my parent's house with the family to celebrate my niece's 9th birthday. The food and the company will be great, but I will admit that a little part of me wishes I was heading out for date night with the husband to a gorgeous restaurant like Mercado de Ibiza. David Zafra, the designer, sent us these photos (we had featured another restaurant of his here) and it is quite a sight. The flooring is SO gorgeous, the lighting is spot-on (sweet Foscarini choices) and the chairs are sleek and cozy looking. I bet the food is incredible too.

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.
