Today, for Thurdays Original Interiors, let’s come with the Pink Dog in a lovely cafè I’ve visited last weekend during my trip in Ljubjana.
After a fast peek to its exterior, with those high arched and those pale pink metal chairs, I realized that this Lolita cafè was worth a coffee break…and this feeling was confirmed when I saw the interior, and read on a plaque near the cashier that Lolita cafe design was shotilisted in 2012 in the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards as Best International Interior.
The interior design stands for its originality: modern by giving homage to past, and opulent yet stylish.
The interior is filled with lot of natural light, thanks to those huge historic windows. The room is more than five meters high, and this give the interior a gorgeous spatiality.
The interior palette is very feminine: violets, whites, some greens, and black accents. The two shortwalls are covered with exposed bricks painted in a soft shade of violet, from floor to ceiling.
The colour palette fits perfectly with the furniture and lighting pieces: Thonet’s iconic chairs, No.14 bentwood chair, in white and black lacquer; Nika Zupanc (the local design-star) sofas and large black cherry pendant lights in pairs and clusters of threes over the tables; finally, a two dimensional chandelier with a burning cros, creating a dramatic effect.
But the main protagonist here is the crazy ceiling above us: it features an enormous graphic mural, over all width and length, with a traditional floral design on the edges are three mammoth representations in the center (the Creation of Eve; an old fashioned portrait of a lady; and an Allegory of Time).
Under our feet, instead, an amazing parquet floor, created as a combination of more than 100 year old pieces and new parts, put together in a herringbone pattern.
Finally, I must tell you this: macarons are yummies!
