Inspired: Gourmet Baroque

May 1, 2012 § 10 Comments

I’m so excited about this place. It’s a collision of sorts… A collision of some of my favourite things: French meets Portuguese; Black meets white; Baroque meets Modern.

Poisson d’Amour is a French pastry shop in an 18th century building in Lisbon… a daunting task in a city filled with some of the best pastry shops in Europe. Have you ever had a pastel de nata??? Crazy good. Anyway… back to the macarons and gateaux! Also crazy good.

Here’s what inspires me…

  • large mural of a Baroque Mistress… striking and dramatic – what a welcoming sight!
  • black floor and black ceilings… did I mention dramatic?
  • Tiger Skin limestone… my new favourite limestone!
  • Plumen light bulb fixtures… simple and eco friendly
  • old meets new… beautiful arched window openings with new black framed windows
