Appetizer - New Interiors for Restaurants and Cafes
Pastel colors, hyper-realistic murals, indoor jungles, curved and luxurious couches, golden accents, and soft light. Designers, architects and restaurateurs transform a night out at a restaurant into a unique and memorable experience. An array of interiors creatively correspond with each particular menu’s offerings: flower shops that serve coffee amongst the blooms; art galleries that mix the best cocktails in town; shoe boutiques that double as dessert bars. Appetizer visits fashionable bars, tasteful eateries, cozy cafes, and everything in between.
Exquisite room concepts are realized with unusual ideas and materials, and experts showcase how to create dream rooms in dining realms. Within Appetizer awaits a range of inspiration for all who wish to satisfy their visual hunger.
