Jagged Edge

 Federal takes its name from a small town of country New South Wales in Australia, and has a sister cafe in Madrid.
The interior is a designers dream; jagged edges throughout, large communal dining and simplicity pedant lighting – felt like I was sipping my skinny latte on Swan Street.

My recommendation –  the yoghurt & granola ❤

Thank you Federal Cafe – you are my home away from home!

Enjoy – Joy Susanna

Pastels & Patterns

Nothing signifies the coming of spring more than; fresh juice, sunshine and flowers reaching to catch the first light of the season.  Cafe Cometa is that definition of spring! Patterned cushions, a parcel and bold colour pallet, drop lights and freshly picked flowers presented for each table; I could comfortably spend all day sipping my Adàn juice (strongly recommended!) or nibbling on one of their delectable homemade dulces (sweets).

Enjoy – spring is in full bloom here in Barcelona!

Street Talk

 Today I have exclusive photos of jewellery designer Cuca Abad’s showroom and home (..and extensive luxury shoe collection!) displaying etchings of numerous artists from around Spain, the most renowned of all Sonia Bermudez.

‘We wanted to make the walls noisy, like that of the street’s’ Sonia Bermudez says as I walk in the second floor refurbished showroom for Cuca (jewellery designer). Sonia has commissioned unique pieces all over the world for private and commercial interiors, murals, and her latests passion ‘Alto Peru Surf’. A program started as a youth diversion surf school has now extended to reach those not skilled or interested by the water sport.

Sonia recently spent three months in Peru and now focuses her attention on completing Cuca Abad’s jewellery showroom. In collaboration with others, Sonia spoke of the importance of believing and understanding the artwork and how it impacts the feel of the room in the first instance. Learn more about this selfless, passionate an talented woman at http://www.soniabermudez.com or to donate to Alto Peru Surf like their Facebook page –  https://www.facebook.com/altoperusurf/timeline.
