Mart 130

Mart 130 has to be one of the best examples I've seen recently of a comfortable and established cafe maintaining a well curated interior. When Erika's images landed in my inbox I couldn't help but get excited. Rarely do you find the blend of well loved antiques that is also still pulled together and edited. 

Using vintage and antique pieces, paired with a nautical and industrial undercurrent, Mart 130 creates a cohesive blend of worn comfort and bright openness. 

Utilizing red, aqua, black, and blue throughout the multiple seating areas ties the entire space together without needing to match everything. This allows the space to remain cohesive while each room still maintains it's own identity. 

I love the bright back patio featuring painted, dark wood and slat ceiling, you could easily sit for hours.

Booking Office Restaurant & Bar

Name: Booking Office Restaurant & Bar
Location: London

Closed in 1935, The St Pancras Rail Station recently underwent a large restoration. The booking office bar & restaurant now showcases a beautiful mix of history, heritage, and prestige. With large, gothic arched windows, marble, dark wood, and high ceilings, the space feels historic and important while maintaining a level of classic warmth. Fitting with it's travel centric past, the space and design feel  stately and otherworldly, a destination in of itself but also a space that gives a nod to an era of luxury travel. The architecture in this space is breathtaking and I can only imagine the level of time, care, and money it took to restore this striking building to its former glory.
