251 Kings Road Restaurant Cafe - Nick Garrett, gilded sign, painted furniture... interior detailing

We love our restaurant… and sharing it is what it is all about… work in progress making it special.  Anna 251

251… written in gold!

When I came across this little hub I was immediately taken by its atmosphere… calm, friendly and great dining ethos.  I was asked to add some visual magic and right now I am working on a range of detailing that add something unique and charming.

For example adding colour to the dining chairs needed to be based on consideration – finding a cute visual appeal with a twist and surprise.  Something unexpected and individual… the distribution of tone and dusty hue combinations was refined in order to break the mould of the white distress icon and find instead a richer colour combo.

Bringing together a controlled richness is incredibly important in the restaurant interior… controlled because the target audience, richness combining the visual senses in tandem with the aromas, jazz and tastes.

The coffee in 251 is fantastic!… everything must enrich that magic or enliven it…

Hang out at 251 – relax and enjoy…
