When we dine out, often times we think to ourselves, "Gee, it would be so awesome to do something like this at home, I wish I could figure out how." After eating at Spin Pizza in Lee's Summit, Missouri, we felt completely empowered to bust out the trowel and circular saw. See more of their decor after the jump:
Spin Pizza is known for their gelato, wood fired pizza, amazing salads... and now, their decor.
Upon entering the restaurant your eyes are immediately drawn upwards to wood plank studded ceiling. They make a random pattern across the ceiling that you just can't stop staring at. And although I am sure it isn't the most fun thing to dust (the boards don't appear to be sealed in any way), it makes a graphic impact that sets of the calming nature of the rest of the space.
The treatment on the ceiling wraps around to the inside of the open kitchen. The wrap makes a traditionally harsh environment, like the kitchen, something a bit more organic. Plus it really focuses your attention on the kitchen once you have been seated, making your food the focal point.
One entire wall is make exclusively out of concrete. The type of block was varied for depth and texture as well as purpose. The lamps and the air ducts on the ceiling are all a very rich, reddish orange. The coolness of the concrete cuts through the intensity of the color like a pizza wheel through a pie.
The other walls are lined with darkly stained wooden planks that bring together the other elements in the dining room.
The lighting was a change of gears... literally, as it was a hanging bulb that has been undercoated with the fixture made of concentric bicycle gears.
The cord to the bulb was wrapped haphazardly across a tight metal cable. We couldn't help but think that in our own homes a cable like this would provide a fantastic place to hang indoor plants (assuming they would get enough sun) off a long cable.
Last but not least, we greatly enjoyed the rustic yet modern feel to our table number. The sleek texture from the vinyl lettering and the rustic wood triangle were quite picturesque on every table we saw them at.
It was a great place to dine and kept our brains thinking about our own spaces at home. Hopefully our honey-do list doesn't get too long!
