This Art Deco-inspired conservatory is designer Scott Thomas' interpretation of a man cave. He gave it a clean, masculine look by using books, brick and adding a little bit of shine. Special transition windows allow the space to go from morning to night without the use of curtains or shades.

A panel design brings texture and sophisticated style to heighten the appearance of the black walls in this bakery lobby.

A crescent-shaped macaron bar adds visual interest and additional counter space. The back wall features handsome antique mirrors to serve as the backdrop to the Macaron by Patisse signage embellished with brass-trimmed shelves designed for additional storage and showcasing macaron towers.

Velvet Walls Evoke Texture, Color of the Sea in Windowless Hallway
A windowless hallway need not be overlooked when it comes to good design. Cynthia Spence sought to bring in the textures of the ocean with Holly Hunt cotton velvet wallcoverings and a faux bois textured tin ceiling in the main floor vestibule at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. An Art Deco architectural grill conceals an electrical panel.
The gold-trimmed mirror served as the inspiration for this entryway designed by Jona Collins. Two tones of black stripes offer more sophistication as a backdrop to the mirror than a single tone of black would. Using such a dark color with light trim grounds the space, completing the elegant look.
To really catch the customer's eye, the owner's existing art piece was used as an inspiration for the color palette. Fun and vibrant wallpaper patterns are found throughout the store, and the shimmering gray wallpaper used behind the cashier area was actually used in the 60's.
