Carter Bar & Kitchen

Name: Carter Bar & Kitchen
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Design: Nicemakers


Carter Bar & Kitchen, located in Amsterdam, is a warm and gilded reprieve from the everyday. Chestnut and chocolate browns, high gloss blacks, and shiny brass play off each other perfectly within the two story space.

I love the simple shelving behind the bar and how it helps balance the scale of the two-story open space in the bar area. 


All three areas within the space have a distinctive feel but come together in a cohesive manor. All feel warm, rich, and layered which makes for a space you feel you could sit and stay for a while.

Al Tun Tún

Name: Al Tun Tún
Location: Valencia, Spain
Design: Sandra Tarruella



A controlled material palate and great amount of natural light help make Al Tun Tún a warm, beckoning space. 





The beautiful open kitchen puts the cooking at center stage. Simple lines and a beautiful lighting installation add just enough to support the theater and help with the overall scale of the two story space.

Barchetta

Name: Barchetta
Location: NYC
Design: LDV Hospitality



One of the newest openings in NYC is Barchetta, an intimate italian seafood spot. Vintage and nautical touches fill the main dining space and mezzanine exuding a casual warmth throughout the space. 





Danish chairs and custom tables made from found ceiling trusses live alongside abstract impressionist art and vintage light fixtures. The overall space is intimate and casual while maintaining a level of refinement through a natural color scheme and abundance of texture.

Manzanilla

Name: Manzanilla
Location: New York
Design: Meyer Davis



Manzanilla is a Spanish brasserie that creates an intimate environment within its large space.




The chevron tiled floors and warm wood ceiling tie the space together while the multiple seating groups  minimize the impact of the large space.


The attention to detail and contrast of warm and cool materials creates a space appears balanced and energized.
