Greek Style


The thunderstorms are due to end on the morning I leave Greece, and thereafter it’s glorious sunshine through the season. Coincidentally, this is the same day that the hotels switch from ‘Low Season’ rates to ‘High Season’, so presumably they have a deal with the local meteorological office.

I like Greek styling. It seems to combine shaker and art deco sensibilities with practicality, simplicity and a limited colour palette. There seem to be a phenomenal number of design stores on the island, and there’s a confidence in the planning of many interiors that put more supposedly sophisticated cities to shame.

Here’s the interior of the restaurant Bacalo, with a communal herb table and a giant spider-like lamp made up of anglepoises.

    A communal herb table? To add to cooked dishes? surely not. Surely even a salad should have a few minutes to blend flavours. I can understand a pot of parsley to eat at the end or just before dessert, but I wonder about this arrangement.

    I find that lamp predatory and creepy (an arachnaphobe speaks…..)

  3. Steve says:

    I agree with Anne….looks like some sort of ultra-arachnid dropping from the ceiling …. ugh.

    It’s the same old Steve here…just changed my email and the picture no longer shows up. I’ve totally forgotten the site where I set that up.

    Oh well.
