Take It Home: John Salt Style

If you’ve been browsing any one of the Rethink team member’s Pinterest boards this week, it’s no secret we’re swooning over the latest and greatest in contemporary restaurant design. While some may consider collecting (hoarding) images upon images of exposed concrete floors and rustic farmhouse tables only useful for commercial applications, we’re here to show you how these dining gems can translate into your very own kitchen at home. Today’s restaurant inspiration comes from a warm and cozy neighborhood bar in London: John Salt. We love the layered look of industrial materials mixed in with simple white walls and a few tongue-in-cheek graphic elements. To mimic the cozy yet effortless style of this UK restaurant remodel, we’ve pulled together a few of the basic design elements that will have you setting lunch dates with the Queen herself in no time.

Oh Baby… Organic Modernism!

We recently worked with a DIY client on her new baby’s nursery and it got us thinking… Why not create a great nursery space that has all the style of a grown up room? While our client had a baby girl, we put this particular room inspiration together with a baby boy in mind.    We pulled sophisticated furniture that is appropriate for any age as well as tactile (and often handmade) accessories that bring whimsy to the space.  Overall, we were going for a young and modern take on a woodsy cabin idea and this is what we came up with: 1.  The wallpaper is a graphic wood grain print in blue on a white background.  Try papering the whole room or just make one wall a feature. 2.  The handmade patchwork birds gathered on this Etsy mobile are so sweet and whimsical. 3.  This walnut and white sideboard…

Love it! John Corcoran Designs

We came across this designer on Etsy the other day and although he’s only got a few items available- we are LOVING them! This little lightbulb bud vase is the product of ingenuity and simplicity at its best.  I also love reading the story of the inspiration behind the design. Also, check out his fabulous closet shelf/hanging system.  I want one immediately (okay, make it 4).  I love the Scandinavian sort of vibe of the delicate metal framework and bleached wood.  Go check it out!

Round Dining Table Search

We fell in love with this table for a client recently…but unfortunately we would have to arrange shipping from England in order to get it.  The very clean and classic design is perfect for the Modern Natural look we are going for but as so often happens in the design world (based on price, lead time, or source) we are forced to look for a plan B. Here are a few other options… • • 1.  Sunfish Table 2.  018 Atlantico Round Table 3.  Prouvé Guéridon Table 4.  Teepee Table 5.  Cherner Round Table
