The simple & modern, tasteful but minimalist styling at Höst is a timeless aesthetic that is New Nordic, and it’s got me daydreaming about how I can implement this style into my Half Filled House.

It is no surprise that Höst was winner of the worlds best designed restaurant at the 2013 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards. It’s simplistic and rustic design is confident yet understated. Norm Architects are the designers responsible for creating this rustic Scandinavian dining room, and I am just completely in love with it!

Excited to see the restaurant, I visited just before the end of lunch and asked if I could take some photographs of the interior design, which they more than welcomed. I then returned later that evening to spend my birthday meal, and I have to say that their New Nordic cuisine is just as delicious as the setting.

Höst truly is an enchanting environment, it’s muted timeless palette is beautifully textured by the exposed brick walls, stripped back concrete floors and recycled wood panelled ceiling.

A bright cosiness is created through various forms of light, industrial pendants, vintage lamps, a chandelier created from small clustered pendants, and of course candles. The soft glow of flickering candles presented in the loveliest of holders, (that I wish I could have taken home) decorate the tables, giving a romantic twist on the otherwise industrial lighting vibe.

Plants add further texture in the ‘conservatory’ zone of the restaurant, giving an organic aesthetic that is true to its rustic theme, and aim to bring outdoor living to an urban location.

The innovative menu is served on the restaurants own line of dinnerware, designed by Norm Architects for Menu. A selection of which you can find here.
