We couldn't think of a better way to start the new year than with an old WOI. We've picked both interesting architectural and interior design aspects from the 1990 edition. Starting with Chateaurenaud in the depths of central France and its stunning 15th Century staircase constructed on arches. We then move onto the breathing taking landscape of Stowe grounds in Buckinghamshire. We finish with a snap shot of the interior of a mysterious Danish farmhouse. Be inspired for 2014 by these enriching images.
Janaki Larsen's timeless ceramics follow a simplistic style philosophy. Perhaps favouring texture over colour, these contemporary pieces possess an organic and delicate charm. Janaki's pottery can be found in her restaurant 'Le Marche St George', Vancouver. We hope you get something as delightful as this in your stocking this Christmas!
This historic building is situated in Hills End, Australia. Once a large settlement, over the years this serene destination has shrunk to a small and unique village. The relaxed and rustic vibe of the cottage, and village in general, attracts artists from all over world. The cottage is largely unaltered with works of art, books and furnishings that echo the presence of various artists who have lived and worked there since the early 1950s. Positioned in a dramatic and reflective landscape, who wouldn't want to escape to this creative retreat.
With the festive season in full swing we definitely thought it was time for some trusty WOI inspiration. This 1998 issue takes us from original 18th Century paneling and delft tiles, to furniture maker Lincoln Cato's cool coastal home. We are particularly intrigued by the flame red walls and Amelie Dillemann's very beautiful cardboard furniture. Take a moment to revisit.
This quirky farmhouse has a single table able to seat 20 people. The idea is 'a dinner party in a farmhouse'; designer Nicholas Gurney has created a relaxed space, whilst managing to keep the interior fresh and unique. The matte black facade and the contrasting insterior strikes a happy medium of contemporary and aged. Tan leather drapes overs the bench and industrial pendents hang between stained beams. The rustic vibe matches the daily menu and interior. Who wouldn't want a four course meal in this beautiful space?
GRAND OPENING : FIRST IMAGES OF BAR BBQ ON ICE POP UP RESTAURANT | BY ALEXANDER WATERWORTH INTERIORS
Yesterday saw the opening of the Bar BBQ on Ice pop up, Exchange Square. Set in the city, this quirky pop up restaurant and take away offers a delicious array of warming winter treats. Ranging from 14 hour hickory smoked pulled pork shoulder, mulled wine and very tempting cocktails - nothing could scream comfort food louder and what a perfect way to warm up this winter!
Inspired by American deep South traditional dining, the design brings authenticity to the BBQ experience. Diners can step out of their wintery city office and into a bona fide American grill house. The communal tables hope to bring people together, creating an unpretentious and relaxed dining atmosphere. With the juxtaposition of rough textures and boldly coloured furniture, the design aims to ring a playful nature. Whilst the raw timber bar adds an organic flexibility to the space the brilliant neon signs bring a warm urban glow to the exterior.
All in all, Bar BBQ on Ice looks to brighten up Exchange Square. Whether you're after a skate, some frozen cocktails or wood burning grilled delight, this pop-up is set to get everyone into the festive spirit.
