This photo was taken at Odessa restaurant in Dublin. A gang of gals were there three years ago for Jessica’s “hen” and while I was in very fun and entertaining company, I was distracted by the wall! That same year, I had been out to Marrakech with my friend, Kristin, and I was so inspired by all the color and the different approaches to design that one would see in the markets throughout the city. Lots of lush jewel tones and a pretty extensive use of tiles prevailed.
Stealing a page from the Moroccan-design book, Odessa boasted this colorful, hand-painted wall. I thought it was great and I love that it’s not perfectly symmetrical — as if they weren’t trying to fool you that it was tiled. And if you’re interested, they do a great brunch…http://www.odessa.ie/
