The simple organic beauty of a just cracked coconut reminded Chia and I of the sensibilities found in the work of Joel Snayd (the creative genius at the helm of Rethink Design Studio). We were beyond thrilled when Joel agreed to curate our next Food-inspired Interiors post.

The drill goes like this. We give our chosen designer a photo of a particular food and we ask them to pull spaces that could have been inspired by the beauty of the food. We don’t discuss, we let the designer do their thing as we anxiously await their choices.

The results, as seen below, are like Joel and his team…perfection.

Joel’s inspiration.
