Restaurant Inspired Ideas

12 Jul

Inspiration is everywhere. So why not find some from some of the best restaurants? You can easily translate these ideas into your own home on a smaller scale. Take a look and find some inspiration!


This is from San Francisco’s 1300 on Filmore. These historical black and white photos are fitted tiny lights so they glow. These different sized frames fit together like a wonderful puzzle for major impact!


This refined and comfortable eatery, Calafia, is located in Palo Alto, CA. Rows of milk glass jars were used to create the light fixture. The pullout stools are made of slats of pine held tightly together with metal bands.


The color scheme used in this restaurant is great. The antique mirrors in varying shapes and sizes are a wonderful focal point for any wall.


A grid of grocer-inspired wire baskets keep citrus easily accessible at La Condesa in Napa Valley. Dedicating a small wall to vertical storage can be a simple way to keep fresh fruits and staples like potatoes and onions off the counter and attractively contained.


Going bright and bold, the O Bar in the Orange Hill Restaurant in Orange, CA accents an otherwise neutrally colored room with crisp orange elements to energize the space. Very easy to translate into your home!


Two large chalkboards filled with the day’s menu double as artwork at Eveleighin Los Angeles. The tailored chairs and a ticking-striped upholstered banquette help to add a refined edge to the rustic casual ambiance.
