[Tweet “SKETCH, in London, is a piece of heaven available to mortals.”]

I’m not sure if the joy is bigger than the torture experienced after leaving the restaurant. But to their credits I must add that not visiting the Sketch, if you are able to go, is almost a sin.

Sketch is a complex and unique site. A converted 18th century building that will make your head flop and fly at the same time becasue in here anything becomes possible, and even the unthinkable becomes thinkable.

Restaurants, bars, tea rooms, and art shape the world of a visionary team composed by restaurateur Mourad Mazouzand and renown chef Pierre Gagnaire. The interiors were designed by the talented India Mahdavi, and the art is by  David Shrigley, an Scottish artist.

One of the rooms stole my heart: The Gallery. A sumptuous space, flamboyant and sophisticated where pink is king (or Queen). Brass lighting fixtures and a zig-zag tiling floor become part of the scene where white tablecloths are the perfect backdrop for the bold, yet delicate food that accompanies your (english) classic afternoon ritual.

P.S. Remember that spaces are an unavoidable part of our journey in life, becoming silent influencers of our mood and actions. Making intentional visits to places that make you smile will lift you up and energize you. Hope you like my post from today!

Before & After | Contemporary Barn Renovation

It’s not a secret to anyone that I’m a huge fan of the TV program Fixer Upper and of the renovations Joanna Gaines & Chip (her husband) do. This before & after contemporary barn renovation was so great that I decided to share my insights with you. Also, I’ll give you 3 tips to help you understand what makes it a great design.

My first reaction to Joanna’s ability to merge contemporary and country style is admiration, to a point that my heart wants to melt in front of such a good work. Yeap, you read it correctly, I just went all the way in here by exposing my admiration in a metaphorical language – not shame on that! 🙂

Deep Blue in Interior Design

Combining images found online to insert later on my inspirational design board is an activity done on a daily basis. It’s a practice that keeps my inspiration flowing and excited.

Chevron Marble Subway Tiles + Single Copper Cord Set w/Edison Bulb + Blue Wall + Blue Cabinetry + Ocean + Open Cloudy Sky + Spaciousness + Classic + Hydrangeas + Sublime Beauty

By pairing down the room designed around a deep blue theme and the ocean, I enhanced the moodiness and beauty of one another. Hope you enjoy it!
