A stunning little restaurant in Greece’s equally stunning capital, Athens. La Maison du Grec was designed by architects Minas Kosmidis. The idea behind the seemingly vintage interior design is to pay homage to the classic Greek architecture. For that purpose, the architect duo chose to use patterned mosaic tiles and a sculptural antefix carved from solid wood. The colorful chairs close the look, creating a gorgeous visual contrast.

A place where you can find a fusion of Asian, and Peruvian flavours, Pink Monkey, in Madrid was brought to life by entrepreneur Francois Poplawsky, and chef Jaime Renedo. Together with architect Marta Banús they created a restaurant decor that is a mix between vintage chic and bohemian, that we can’t help but love.

Not only does this vintage industrial restaurant has a two-Michelin star chef (Tim Raue), but it also boasts an amazing restaurant decor! The two-story place is airy and windowless, but that coldness is balanced by the warm lights that hang all over the place. According to the head chef, Raue, La Soupe Populaire was furnished to direct its clients’ focus to the exhibited artworks and the dishes that are being served.
