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!
I need your thoughts. Is it wrong for a woman in her 50s to strap on a backpack and head to Barcelona? Check into a hostel? Belly up to the bar? Is it? When the hostel looks as great as Generator Barcelona? And when I'm finished I can jump a train to Venice, London, Copenhagen and more.
I often get tired of homes that don't look like anyone actually lives there (often the case of architects' portfolios). Perhaps that is why this apartment took my breath away. It is the Chueca, Madrid apartment of British-born photographer Adrian Tyler. It is located in a building built in 1894 and maintains much of the original features, but includes some new touches such as 3 tons of tile from Morocco for the kitchen and bathroom. Throw in some mid-century furniture classics, Adrian's photography and a sh*tload of books and you've got some pretty sweet digs. (Via Neuvo Estilo)
I wish summer would last forever. To sit here at my computer with the window open and listen to the birds, traffic (LOL), and enjoy the cool breeze. To see green outside instead of white and brown. I could just move into a traditional Mediterranean villa such as this one and all would be right with the world. (I would have to add a bit of black and more modern and industrial touches to it though). Via Micasa.
