Daily inspiration, atmosphere

I thought I’d show you what I mean with a space with atmosphere – it’s not always easy to put it in words, you see. Most people envisions different images in their mind. Rightly so, but I want to show it with pictures – just for you. What do you think?

Time to sit back

I know that i have said it before but i don’t mind repeating myself, what makes a restaurant is more than what is served on the menu. It is the total experience actually. The moment you open the door to enter in, you can immediately feel the atmosphere – if not, then it is not worth it.

At least, if you are after a memorable night in a nice place with great feeling for the whole experience – whether it is the menu, people with you & around you, waiters, the space, the lighting, furniture, etc. I do really mean it when I say that it doesn’t matter if it’s exclusive, famous, simple or just a whole in the wall.

Daily inspiration, pasta restaurant

I am always on the look for nice restaurants & coffee shops – more so than boutiques, actually. The attraction is the architecture, the decor, the menu, the food,aromas & atmosphere. It need not be expensive & exclusive either. A combination of all this makes a place interesting, nice & welcoming. Well selected staff does the trick too.

Here in Australia we have an endless number of houses built in masonry in different styles and in different colour variations. From the red, to white, dark brick as well as black. Incredibly beautiful houses from the mid-1800s, to the new modern buildings. The materials range from polished white, rough brick to a combination of modern wooden & old brick. I appreciate when one attempts to retain the old house & adds to or builds with the new. Two eras that interact is always charming.

I have not always been fond of bricks but it has slowly crept on, like falling in love, with the fabulous surroundings that influences. Especially restaurants & coffee shops around Sydney’s suburbs. Take a look & see what you think!

Daily inspiration, check out

I like to check out the shops, restaurants, cafes & the likes. Not always so much for their range – at least not in terms of first impression. May it be simple or extreme – it doesn’t matter. The place should have something that appeals to all the senses, something that makes you feel comfortable, that makes you want to revisit.

By the way, we are just heading to the beach & we will bike through the city – two birds with one stone!
