I never considered myself much of a decorator but set my mind to it over the last three months and completely madeover Vince and my cafe. It was only in completing the decorating project that I realized exactly what the old decor lacked–warmth.
I mean, I kind of new the old decor was a little industrial, with pink walls, black concrete floors and exposed ventilation, but I didn’t really understand how to get past that. It took about 2 months of research, looking at other cafes and how their design and layout created cozy atmospheres. We repainted the walls warm oranges and yellows, actually painted the black floor to olive green, replaced our old black Ikea chairs with oak chairs and added dividers to separate the service area from the seating area, creating more intimate spaces.
In the end, I’m really pleased. Now I’d like to get back to making art.
