I was at a new ‘Joey’s’ last night on Burrard and Pender and I thought the washrooms were so great!
It seems like all the trendy, ‘upscale casual’ restaurants these days are in competition to see who can design the coolest bathrooms so here’s yet another one.
I especially liked the floor tile I think because it’s in the shape of a flower.
Also I’m tired of chocolate brown, it’s just everywhere and overdone, so I quite liked the the black and white combination with the cherry stained wood.
I don’t know if I would have picked that wallpaper in combination with the tile if I was the designer here, but I think it works.
This ‘mushroom lamp’ as I’m calling it, was apparently $125,000 and came from Denmark. The installer had to fly in from Denmark as well to install it!
How great is this very large scale wallpaper at the bar!! I just loved it, along with the gold framed flat screens!
The gold is the only accent colour in this otherwise ‘black and white’ restaurant. Personally I think they could have introduced a more vibrant colour but it’s easier to be a critic than to create from nothing and the place was packed so obviously people like it!
