John Anthony, Hong Kong

I've just recently returned from beloved London, which in my opinion, is one of the most impressive destinations for design lovers. You can find inspiration in nearly every corner of the city - in restaurants, boutiques and hotels alike. Another feast for the senses can also be found in Hong Kong, one of my favorite destinations in the world and home to a newly opened and jaw dropping restaurant John Anthony. Named after the first Chinese man to become a British Citizen in 1805, and who would provide food and accommodations to Chinese sailors in London, the dim sum restaurant has been described as a fusion between a Chinese canteen and a British tea house. East meets west with its colonial architecture and eastern touches. Every detail is beyond stunning - the arches, the green, blue and pink color palette, the wicker furniture, the reclaimed terra cotta tiles, the terrazzo floors, the printed fabric and the hand painted walls. The textiles, the shapes, the colors . . . just, wow. And you should know that thus far, reviews have raved about the Cantonese cuisine!

    Why does this post, featuring not the food but the interiors of a restaurant, does not credit the designers of the space? This is frankly an unacceptable oversight. If the designer is known, please make sure to credit them for future posts.

    This restaurant is designed by Linehouse Architects. Their website:

    Another matter:

    These photographs are not the property of Honestly WTF. They are taken by photographer Johnathon Leijonhufvud. Does hWTF have the permission of the photographer to repost these photos? Where is the credit for the photographer?
