Spain’s filled with cities that all deserve a spot in any tourist’s itinerary. One particular city that should be a priority is Seville. Seville has a couple of things to offer that other cities don’t. There are an amazing influence and mix of cultures, combined with a proudness that is unmatched. Food culture is mostly centered around social life and the culture of tapas. The restaurant Casaplata in Seville is one of those must visit places.

Casaplata’s Unconventional Interiors

A huge disparity to the timeless architecture you see outside, restaurants and cafes in Seville have found the sweet spot in keeping up with the times without going overboard and destroying that old charm. Casaplata is a prime example of that. The restaurant sits at the heart of the city and is run by restaurateurs who want to introduce a new kind of experience to Seville.

The entire interior is a unique blend of Brutalist grey concrete and exposed pipes mixed with pastel colors throughout. A large hole looking into a pastel dining room imitates the experience of looking into a whole different world. This dining room’s a stark contrast to the rest of the restaurant with its bright interior and seats.

Several mirrors and circular fixtures mimic the hole throughout the restaurant, creating an illusion that it’s larger than it actually is. Ring lights and exposed metal piping also introduce a playful mix between industrial and classy interiors. The muted backgrounds highlight the colors of steel chairs and tables in dining areas to help customers focus more on the culinary experience, not that the restaurant isn’t an experience in itself.

With an unconventional layout, having the perfect interior helps to set the mood. It’s not every day that stripped-down, interiors turn out to be just the right fit. Spanish studio Lucas y Hernandez-Gil transforms a former 90s-era coffee shop into this restaurant with grey, concrete walls, and bold fixtures.

Their main inspiration behind Casaplata Seville is paintings by Giorgio Morandi, an Italian painter, and printmaker. The painter’s works often featured still-life against concrete or muted walls. Subjects of the paintings were often in bright colors presenting a striking contrast. The limited color palette allows customers to give most of their attention to the food. Restaurateurs want their customers to have a wonderful culinary dining experience. With an interior just as good as the food, nothing can go wrong.

It is no secret that Paris has been the capital of fashion since the seventeenth century. The city has been the playground for prestigious designers and couture brands like Chanel, Dior, and Saint Laurent. Today the Parisian style is not only an aesthetic choice but a philosophy. It embraces elegance, timelessness, and slow responsible fashion. The focus is on the cut and the quality of the materials. No fluff or excessiveness with a less is more approach. And what better way to understand Parisian fashion than to visit a museum dedicated to it.

For more than 70 years, the house has been crafting magical couture pieces in their atelier at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Christian Dior has made this location a legendary address since the first collection in 1947. Behind its new flagship, the House of Dior inaugurates a permanent exhibition in an extraordinary gallery, independently of its boutique. Mr. Dior wanted to be an architect; the building and the museum pay him a beautiful tribute today.

The staging is astonishing. A circular staircase at the entrance showcases 452 dresses and 1,422 accessories, all 3D printed. Bags, shoes, perfumes, and small objects: so many testimonies of the Dior style materialized to elaborate this Diorama.
