Tin ceiling tiles and a wall treatment painted by a graffiti artist offer an urban feel to Bobalicious, a tea and juice bar in San Diego, Calif. Red Tolix-inspired dining chairs offer a bright pop of color, playing on the fun vibe.
This family-oriented condominium was designed from raw space high above the historic Gaslamp quarter in downtown San Diego. The large flexible open space offers jaw dropping views of the bay and city. Glass upper cabinets are paired with shiny glass tile backsplash and then grounded by grid-like black cabinets. The large center island is clad in a sleek waterfall countertop and provides bar seating with contemporary green stools.
The platform bed with built-in nightstands are kept low to create a contemporary style but also so they don't compete withe beautiful views of San Diego through the floor-to-ceiling windows. For a touch of retro, a vintage advertisement is hung above the bed, while a shag area rug adds warm texture underfoot.
The black and white base of this home's palette serves as a springboard for imaginative layering of bright colors and bold patterns. Here, a tiny nook over the kitchen becomes a vibrant home office with tropical green wallpaper.
Tea Bar Features Black, Gray and White Design by Graffiti Artist
Rather than use wallpaper to achieve a patterned effect in this San Diego tea and juice bar, designer Corrine Maggio hired a graffiti artist to paint a black-and-charcoal design and tag the wall with the bar's name.
Juice Bar Features Urban-Meets-Traditional Decor in Black and White
White tufted booth seating offers a foil to both the color and style of the black-and-gray wall treatment painted by a graffiti artist at this San Diego juice bar. Red industrial chairs and a small yellow planter offer fun pops of color.
