COLLECTION_ pink cafés around the world

COLLECTION_ pink bars - via aupaysdesmerveillesblog

It wasn’t my intention to devote this post to just one colour, but when I started collecting beautiful interiors of cafés, it quickly became clear that pink’s moment is not quite over yet.  During my search I bumped into every possible shade of pink, from subtle blush accents to full on millenial pink interiors.  Have a seat and enjoy this dreamy trip around the world with me!

  1. Art nouveau meets the seventies in Louie Louie.  The French inspired American bistro is located in Philadelphia.  See more of the design by Rohe Creative here.
  2. For pizza in a pastel interior, you need to go to Toronto’s True True.  Find more images of the design by Pencil here.
  3. Inspired by 70s pools, Pink Pool café in Seoul is sure to welcome you with a splash.  Check out their instagram for more photos.
  4. The Budapest Café in Chengdu, China, is inspired by Wes Andersons’ film The Grand Budapest Hotel.  Discover more photos of this coffee bar designed by Biasol here.
  5. Sketch in London is probably the most famous place on this list and the OG of pink interiors.  Discover the restaurant designed by India Mahdavi here.
  6.  Nude is Kortrijk’s place to be for casual food and fancy cocktails.  Have a look at their instagram for more images.
  7.  Pastels meet minimalism in Vacation café in Melbourne, designed by local studio Therefore. Find more photos here.
  8. Willmott’s Ghost is located inside The Spheres (a trio of plant-filled glass orbs) at Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle. See more of the project by Heliotrope Architects here.
  9.  Copper in Antwerp is an excellent occurence of #plantsonpink and was designed by the owner herself.  See more on their instagram.

For more pink moments, have a look at my blogposts about Copine and Thelma coffee and design.

FRAGMENTS_ pink hues of Sintra

Fragments_ pink hues of Sintra - Hannelore Veelaert for aupaysdesmerveillesblog.beIt took me a couple of years, but during my last visit to Lisbon, I finally made it to the neighboring city of Sintra.  This infamous town is mostly known for its numerous royal palaces and castles (more about that later), but today I’d like to put its countless shades of pink in the spotlight.  While Las Palmas already surprised me with its infinite supply of pastel facades and Lisbon’s amount of soft colored houses is pretty impressive as well, Sintra turned out to be devoted to one pastel hue in particular.  I’ll let the pictures do the talking, but can you spot the lurking grandmother behind the window?
