Bournemouth Vintage Emporium – Tea Rooms Interiors

Interior Design

Client: Bournemouth Vintage Emporium

Complete re-design of interior space for tea rooms and cafe. I designed a new look for the cafe, creating a fresh space with a nod to Mid Century design.

This visual story has vivid green walls and ceiling, a strong monochrome striped floor and modern tables with vintage vinyl tan armchairs. Velvet armchairs added soft textures. I painted artwork with abstract black and white paintings using existing vintage frames. Diffused globe floor lights were used to add a gentle light to the space. I used my sign writing skills to make blackboard menus from vintage signs and frames. The large windows give lots of natural light, so I placed large plants to make the space feel cosy and home like. I wanted it to feel like your own lounge, but with good coffee and cake. A space to chill, chat and relax in.

The second phase of this design was to add in a large mural and typography by local artist Rick Walker from Paintshop Studios. I worked with Rick to add in his signature style into the space, adding colour and flavour. A modern day mid century mix.
