We are finally out of lockdown (#3? I can’t even keep track anymore) and heading to a restaurant for tacos tonight for my husband’s birthday. I’m super excited to get out of the house. The Boho bar in Odessa, Ukraine designed by Eugenio Kolomiychenko is definitively showing off some boho chic style! The details in this space are incredible – the wood bar, the mandala design in the plaster wall, exposed brick, the beautiful lighting…. how I would love to spend an evening here!
Here in Ontario we are back in a state of emergency/stay-at-home order/lockdown #3 so there’s no cute cafés open to go hang out in and eat some avocado toast like this sweet spot, PINKAVO Café in Langley, B.C. designed by studio illa. Love the simplicity of this space and the Cedar and Moss lighting. Happy Sunday, stay home and stay safe!
Another designer who can do no wrong and whom I have admired for years is Hubert Zandberg and this is his fabulously curated London apartment. Speckled with afternoon sun welcomed in through oversized, west-facing windows, Hubert Zandberg’s new White City apartment is testimony to his design approach: that a space can be infused with character through seemingly disparate items collected over time and place. The 100 square metre apartment is situated in Television Centre in White City. The new-built provided Hubert with the perfect blank slate against which to display some of his collected pieces, antiques and art in a new, dynamic composition. He furnished the ‘developer’s white box’ using key items from the HZ permanent collection, including vintage Modernist objet and works of art, as well as prototype furniture from the By HZI line, such as a sofa, several cabinets, sideboards, a custom bed and shelving. The end result is a bespoke, greatly personal space that underscores the designer’s belief that smart styling can transform a space with very limited architectural intervention.
It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Est Lighting showroom by Christopher Elliott.
