|Matsalen Restaurant, Grand Hotel Stockholm|
The November / December 2010 issue of Vogue Living Australia has an article on Ilse Crawford from Studioilse, featuring her recent work including the beautiful Grand Hotel, Stockholm, Sweden. Ilse Crawford designed the 36 24 36 fabric for Christopher Farr Cloth I used on my Outdoor Room and I just love the simplicity and calm of her design here. The colours are muted, unexpected yet so sophisticated.
Working with chef Mathias Dahlgren, Studioilse designed two restaurants within the hotel, Matsalen (The Dining Room), the slow food restaurant and Matbaren (The Food Bar), the fast food bar. Look at this for slightly more highbrow than McDonalds:

Love the floor, love the chairs, love the curves - on the chairs, above the bar, the light fittings. Love, love, love.
