1920's themed Restaurant
January 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have just taken over a successful 1920's themed restaurant, but it is in need of redecorating. It is a very long narrow room with window only at the entry point. It has central pillars down the middle of the room. It is now off white walls and pillars Burgundy. It has most of the wall surface covered with Art deco pictures, colours mainly black and white and burgundy backgrounds, this is what is making it difficult to decide on a colour scheme. not much goes with burgundy and they want to keep the pictures in situ. It has been suggested, white walls, as I said not a lot of wall-space shows, and the central pillars black, then change the waiters uniforms from burgundy to French style waiters, ie white shirts and long black aprons, or white shirts, black waistcoats and long white aprons. The furniture is dark wood with cloth covered seats. while finances are tight I could stretch to re covering the chairs, obviously the table coverings will need to be changed too. any advice or help re colour scheme will be gratefully accepted.
