Inspiration: Terroni Restaurant

atla-072508-terroni01.jpgHotels, friend's houses, media, and restaurants are all sources of inspiration for us; part of our job description is that we tote our Lumix camera everywhere. The other night, we stopped in at Terroni, a lively spot on Beverly Boulevard, across from the entrance to the Grove. The wine (served in Reidel glasses), the food (walnut, gorgonzola, honey and pear pizza), and the Italian lessons emanating from the loudspeakers in the bathroom were all great but what really blew us away was the design...

Somehow, they've managed to get that mix of industrial and glamour, modern and weathered, sleek and worn just right. From the bar chairs (the orange tufted leather makes us swoon...)

to the large red letters over the kitchen...

the industrial lights over the bar booths...

the photos between glass that divide the bar area from the main part of the restaurant...

the wooden booths, sleek and polished...

the tile, a little imperfect...

another type of industrial lighting, over the main part of the bar (we love how they've mixed a few kinds of industrial lighting with giant chandeliers, dripping with crystal)...

glamourous crystal lamps, grey tile and white grout in the bathroom. The old recordings of Italian lessons coming from the speakers make great background music. We might have to throw some into the music mix for our next party.
