It has often been said that the key to a successful business is location, location, location. We get it; location is important. But even with the greatest location in the world, a business can easily fail if its interior is not just as well thought out. Interior design is the art of balancing functional needs and aesthetic preferences inside of a structure. After all, the purpose of a building is really defined by its interior, not its exterior.
Private Project Request with Sonia Carlson
I would like help re-vamping the look and layout of my coffee shop. This coffee shop was the second location we open in Tanzania in 2015 and needs a new look! Something similar to what we did with the branch in Arusha!
Since your room gets plenty of sunlight your color options are quite broad. But because we want to keep it cool, let’s go for lighter and fresher white as it’ll brighten the space and allow you to use UV blocking curtains.
For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious. We are using black or very dark gray on the main entry wall and the ceiling of the work area. If you need backsplash tile in the work area, use a white subway tile with gray grout.
