Small Tea Coral Gables Florida


Small Tea’s flagship store in  Coral Gables is designed by Osmose, with emphasis on creating a ‘modern’ sanctuary for tea instead of just a tea shop. The use of wood everywhere, the enveloping arch above the long seating area, all give a sense of warmth to the space. My favorite part was the display.

No.57 Boutique Cafe in Abu Dhabi | Restaurant Design


The Dinner Club by No. 57 was a popular concept that started back in 2012 by Buthaina Al Mazrui & Alamira Noor Bani Hashim, based on the concept of ‘invitation only’ pop up restaurant/ event place. There was no particular location for those monthly events. Due to popularity of the concept, No.57 Cafe Boutique came to life. Located in Abu Dhabi and designed by Dubai based architects Anarchitect, the owners want to make sure to keep it the place alive and still have the secret dining room for special events.

Materials used were mainly the timeless Carrara marble, concrete, oak, and metal.

Iconic Café Artcurial In Paris Revamped By Charles Zana


During the winter season, the famous Café Artcurial got a revamp by interior designer Charles Zana. The most interesting features of this café are the skylight flooding the space with daylight and the lovely lighting fixtures acting like floating bubbles. The bold patterns on the walls portray a certain evolution in the design concept yet maintaining the historical background. The restaurant offers a menu with specialties and wines from every Italian province, particularly from Piedmont, all served under a glass roof, allowing a view of the elegant private garden.
