Oh, how I wish I could spend my Sunday in Paris’ Pigalle neighbourhood, enjoying a delicious meal at Pink Mamma. Designed by MBDS, this bar/restaurant is beautiful from the pink tiled exterior to the plant filled interior, including a rooftop garden. (photos: James McDonald unless otherwise noted)
Finished your Christmas shopping and baking and wondering how to spend your Sunday afternoon? How about relaxing in a pink booth with a coffee at Pastel Rita in Montréal’s neighbourhood of Mile End. Designed by Appareil Architecture, this 1500 sq ft space is home to a café, artisan workshop and boutique. The colour scheme of green, pink and yellow is so warm and energetic. I’ll have to check this place out next time I’m vintage shopping on St. Laurent.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish … plus good coffee is a definite bonus. #tag is a co-working space for digital creatives in Warsaw designed by mode:lina™ architects. Add to the mix excellent beverages, the ability to shoot videos or photos and a large workshop and you have just about everything you need as an indie content producer. (Loving those coffee cup walls 😉
It is Sunday and you’re hungry, thirsty and have some work to do. If you’re in downtown Montréal you can head to Café Parvis on Rue Mayor and enjoy what looks like some really incredible foods, drinks and bring your laptop because they have a workspace area so you can be productive too! I love the casual, earthy vibe of this place, designed by Atelier Zébulon Perron.

Since I am crushing on the work of Madrid-based designer Ricardo de la Torre I thought I would share a random assortment of other projects of his, including some commercial spaces. That space above though – WOW! I’m also mesmerized by the last 2 spaces (from the VIP area of Summa, the Contemporary Art Fair of Madrid).
