China Beach

China Doll in Woolloomooloo has opened a beachside branch called China Beach in Manly. It's light and bright and the food is delicious. I spent a good part of the night checking out the interior. The small but lovely space was designed by the very clever Iain Halliday. Get the look at home: Tables are Eero Saarinen from de de ce and you can purchase the Tolix chairs from Thonet. The floor tiles were imported from Europe, but you could try the Olde English Tile Factory for a similar look. IKEA has the rice paper lanterns in three sizes for a super inexpensive light installation. When you are there, have a cocktail or two - the bar staff certainly know their stuff.

  2. You have an amazing gift of 'putting' it all together Anne S
