Today I wanted to share with you some snapshots from my new home ! My home is a creative home that constantly evolutes and changes. I love introducing elements of nature (branches, stones, flowers…) in my decoration. It feels good to be surrounded by nature ! Art is another important part when I think about my house ! You would want to have art that touches you, that inspires you, around you.
Here you can follow the latest project by TheMarigold! We are redoing the restaurant Casa Chez Papouin Tarifa, Spain. The restaurant clearly had an image problem from the start and the interior didn’t attract much people because of its dark walls and furniture.
The idea was to give it a new and more attractive touch, to brighten everything up on the inside and to have a more visible facade. We chose to do this by bringing in some eclectic modern art and by painting all the furniture inside and outside in white (mixed with sand from the beach for a more rough and used touch). Firouz Farman-Farmaian then did some of his famous dripping in orange and red on each table and we covered the grey walls with a vibrant painting in 6 pieces to finalize the new artistic image of the restaurant.
On the tables you now find painted African pumpkins as candle holders and above the bar an old surfboard that Firouz has painted in the same color scheme.
The place is today an arty spot in Tarifa, famous for its original decor and its chicken dishes so do pop in for a bite and some of Papou’s famous cocktails if you happen to be in South of Spain !

The GRK Gallery in Paris is presenting the exhibition ‘SOLO’ by Firouz Farman-Farmaian, going on till May 15th. Here you will find some photos from the Opening night on May 1st as well as photos from the live art performance by the artist. Don’t miss this exhibition if you are in Paris, you will be touched by the power of the striking solar colors and the soft textures of sand that melt in to the painting like a natural element, like a statement of nature. ‘SOLO’ , alone with nature !
