The Pickle Blog

We are influenced by a lot more than design around us, in our blog we will add photography, architecture, art and anything else that sparks our curiosity. All along with anything happening in the studio and our design classics.

Chocolate interior in 1940s style

Curve Appeal

25th April 2017

This is Hotel Buena Vista, in Mosman, Australia. The interior is designed by SJB, in collaboration with Tess Regan Design – and it is a feast for the eyes. The 1940s character of the hotel has been kept but beautifully brought up to date. Everywhere you look your eye floats over tactile surfaces, rich colours and inviting curves.

Where to begin! I love the dark chocolate ribbed bar, the marble bench tops, leather booths, wooden panelling and how the light rests on the brass detailing. A cool place that is inspiring from every angle.
