Vis Aan de Schelde


And now a post about interiors for a change. This time, a restaurant which has just gone through complete renovations recently: Vis aan de Schelde, in Amsterdam. I have spotted  it in my fave decoration and interior magazines:  More than Classic and Eigen Huis & Interieur at my local library this month. Studio Molen and Studio Modijefsky are responsible for the brand new interior where the main theme - fish - is very present: on china and on the walls.

The walls are covered with tiles, exclusively made for the restaurant by Harlinger Aardewerk en Tegelfabriek. Theres is everywhere an industrial/nautical atmosphere.
Some of the walls are decorated with maritime themes.

The wood on the wall seems to me to be de fish bone pattern, rather common on floors than on walls. I like to see it employed on a wall, though.
The blue fish reminds me of Portuguese porcelain and tile murals. But then it reminds me a bit of Delft porcelain as well.

Just like my previous post about Tjep projects for restaurants Fabbrica, this post was supposed to be about admiring Dutch design/interiors only. But I cannot resist posting the following pics as well... Mouth watering !!

Well, that is it for a short design entry. I love posting here about pretty Dutch design (and all things genuinely Dutch, of course). After blogging about this restaurant interior I want so much to go for a visit. That wouldn't be difficult, once it is located in Amsterdam. Maybe for my b'day in May ? Fish and fruit de mer meals make my heart beat harder. As soon as I go there, I shall write a  food review (and take my own pics) - and will let you know what I found about it !        wink

All pictures are, of course, from the restaurant website.

Poxa, eu AMO frutos do mar. Este post me deu "Mouth watering" !! Acho que vou pra Amsterdam só para encher a cara de sashimi!! Sabe que depois que eu tive a minha casa fiquei mais interessada por design, decoração e tal? Amo sair por ai vendo o que tem de novo para decoração, pena que no momento me falta um pouco mais de verba para isso :-).

Eu curto carne e frango no dia a dia mas, como já disse no post, meu coração bate mais forte por peixes e frutos do mar. Se vc gosta de decoração Sandra então fique acompanhando o blog porque eu vou postar bastante a respeito... endereços lindíssimos na Holanda... Olha, pra mim no momento tb falta verba. Compramos uma casa bem maior e não vendemos a antiga, também fiquei desempregada um bom tempo. Então compro de segunda mão e restauro totalmente, pulverizando contra vermes e traças, lixando até o móvel ficar no osso, investindo em tinta cara. E me auto-educo em decoração com os melhores e mais críticos blogs, vídeos no youtube (e revistas que vejo gratuitamente na biblioteca enquanto meu filho faz judo...). Acho melhor esperar, pensar muito a respeito e juntar grana para comprar uma peça boa.
