Colour Coded Interiors: Four inspiring restaurant decor ideas



The role of colour goes hand in hand with style in creating coordinated interiors that make up a consistent final look. With so many trends constantly evolving and new ones being created, the global authority on colour, Pantone have come up with a series of creative guidelines to help make the task simpler. Here, we use some of these guidelines as a basis for inspiration for restaurant interiors. Alongside a selection of stunning restaurant interiors, we team up the ideal products from our wide range of café and restaurant furniture presenting ideas on how to recreate the ideal colour palette.

Inspiration: So 9 Restaurant, Sydney

Subtle greys, wooden surfaces adding a taupe-like tone and accents of shimmering golds and brass really add a finesse to the interior of So 9 Restaurant. The colours all sit inline with the colours from the ‘Style-Settings’ palette of Pantone interiors colours as it combines deep earthy browns and beige’s with elegant and luxurious golds and hues of blue.

Create a high design polished look with the stylish ST6N chairs, which combine soft wooden tones with greys, blue and light pink shades. The solid ash frame is designed with soft rounded seat edges and a simple yet elegant form. Other ranges that offer a ‘Style-Settings’ palette choice includes the Basel wood chair with its soft beige and taupe hues against a solid wood beech frame. The Modular sofa range comes with an easy to maintain vinyl upholstery option, which also comes in a wide range of shades from rich violets and blues to earthy beige’s and subtle creams.

Inspiration: Ferdings Bar and Restaurant, Munich

Untreated concrete walls, bold furniture and warm down-lights infused with small accents of green, this very rustic and urban interior presents all the elements from the ‘Urban Jungles’ palette. Each of the elements alone could have created a less than appealing atmosphere, however here they compliment one another and create a haven within this cave-like space. The black furnishings are softened with contrasting bright white tiles and warming lighting throughout adding a cosy feeling.

A classic wooden chair option is the Tivoli wooden chair with the black stained ash finish. Alongside high-quality and solid finish, the subtle curve in the seat and back rest adds comfort for the user, whilst a seat and back rest pad in upholstery are also available. Further enhance the bold look of a restaurant or cafe inline with the Urban jungles palette with the Malmo wood bar stool. The stool is made of a durable solid wood frame available in natural ash, black stained ash or grey stained ash and a plywood seat and back rest. Add variation to the seat and backrest with a fabric or leather finish to complement the interior style of a rustic urban interior space.

Inspiration: Yeeels restaurant, Paris

An elegant interior with gold finishes always has that little dash of charm and here at the Yeeels restaurant in Paris, it is complemented with deep blues and grey in soft velvet upholstery finishes. these tones all refer to the ‘Zensation’ colour palette which draws in atmospheric tones that are both rich and create a highly attractive look. The simplicity of the interior is enhanced with the combination of tones.
