La vie en rose!

Color Code:   *Pink  *Grey  *Black   *white

   Normally, I tend to go for a neutral palette, as I find myself more comfortable in a total white interior with some wooden touch, but...
Doesn't it make a perfect match?
   *Pale pink color is giving the romantic side, the sweetest, the warm, the calm, peace and lovely side of the balance. 
   *Black color is giving just the opposite one: dusk, gloomy, shadowy and mainly loads of contrast. Low doses of it equilibrates the sickly sweet of pink color.
   *And grey is just calming down, giving the harmony to the aggressive relationship between both of them.
   *White just needs to be there...

                                    * * *

   Confieso que, por norma general, tiende a gustarme una paleta de colores muy neutra, ya que me siento mucho más cómoda en los interiores total White a los que la madera aporta ese toque de calidez que el color blanco necesita para no resultar frío, pero...
¿Y esta paleta no forma un combo perfecto?
   *El rosita palo aporta romanticismo, dulzura, calidez, calma, paz y muestra el lado más encantador de la balanza.
   *El negro aporta justo lo contrario: oscuridad, pesimismo, sombra y, principalmente, mucho contraste. En bajas dosis equilibra lo empalagoso del rosa.
   *Y el gris lo calma todo, proporciona la armonía a la agresiva relación entre ambos.
   *Por último, el blanco: tiene que estar...

Höst, design and food.

A restaurant that looks like a farm.

   This time I wanted to write a post that joins two of my  passions:
design & food.

   I always enjoyed finding new interiors and restaurants with a good design in every city I visited. That is the reason why I love The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, which is a UK and international competition, now in its fifth year, and world's only event dedicated exclusively to the design of food and drink spaces.

   Like this I discovered Höst, the first Danish restaurant to win the annual R&BD Award and one of the great winners in that competition as the best restaurant in Europe.

   Host is the result of Norm Architects design studio and Menu studio, together with Cofoco restauranteur. Located in the centre of Copenhagen, it expresses everything that could be categorised as “Nordic”, and is the exquisite result of clashes: romantic yet modern, urban yet rural and rustic yet simplistic. It holds a very special place in people’s hearts because of its multiple stories, mixed inspirations and natural materials recreated the quietness of a farm in the heart of the city.

   Norm Architects ( this studio that I really love and that deserved time ago another of my post that you can still read when clicking -------->> HERE)even created a whole complete and specific tableware for this restaurant, based on the same concept and feeling. You can buy it online here

   No wonder about their success. Simplicity, good design and natural elements all together makes always a perfect team. 

   I hope you are luckiest than me and try it, then please, tell me about the experience!!(Don´t worry about I am gonna die of jealousness).
