Nomad Coffee

Name: Nomad Coffee
Location: Barcelona

There is something great about the simplicity and unfussy nature of Nomad Coffee. Located in Barcelona, Nomad started out as a small cart and has since transitioned to a brick and mortar space, their name speaking to their roots. 


The unimposing and warm facade welcomes you into a communal space with a utilitarian aesthetic that emphasizes the craft and connection.

Ranger Station

Name: Ranger Station
Location: Snowmass, CO
Design: Scout Regalia

   



As quickly as winter has appeared, so too have the thoughts of a snowy mountain getaway. New Belgium's Ranger Station, located near lifts at Snowmass Village, has the rustic yet contemporary vibe that is the perfect aesthetic for it's mountain local. 





Balancing a utilitarian and rustic interior creates a modern take on the traditional ski lodge. 


I love the simple but bright color palate and blonde wood; a true 180 to the ski lodges commonly found.
By not only designing the interior but also crafting some of the furniture within, the designers were able to create a fully cohesive space.

Essex

Name: Essex
Location: Seattle, WA
Design: tbD


Essex, located near the Ballard area of Seattle, is a bright and inviting space that has quickly made it on my 'I need to get there' list. Playing with contrast to create balance created a welcoming space.









While utilitarian in nature, playing with geometrics and warm colors woods helps the interior come alive. 


The contrast between the warm woods and bright whites of the back bar and countertops helps to maintain the brightness within the space while also creating a balanced and cohesive interior.
