Reservation for Inspiration

I’m often asked where I get my inspiration for the interiors I design. Everything can inspire me, from art to fashion to fabrics. But I love getting inspiration from commercial design too, like restaurants and hotels. There are amazing designs that range from over-the-top to super-glam all around the world! Here are some of my favorites:

This scenic restaurant La Foret Noire was designed by Claude Cartier to remind the viewer of a dark forest. I love the wallpaper, the deep banquette, and the shape of the chair backs. Magnifique!

On the other end of the light spectrum is the light and bright Chez Gaston with stunning marbleized walls and pale wood.

Yellow and black are definitely trending as a color pair right now, so I love the Le Flandrin Restaurant redesigned by Joseph Dirand.

And another restaurant with an amazing floor is the Hispania Restaurant in London designed by Lorenzo Castillo. Love the pops of turquoise!

Speaking of floors, how could you not be inspired by the brass lines that start at the bar and continue across the marble floor? This stunning design is by Build for the Herzog bar in Munich.

Aren’t these spaces incredible? For more inspirational looks at commercial spaces, see my pinboard by clicking here.
