When my sister took me to her favorite hole-in-the-wall for Mexican food recently, the tostadas were excellent. That, I expected. What I didn't expect was that the seating would woo me, too...

There were three types of seating throughout the restaurant: turquoise benches with a 50's futuristic flair, classic bent bamboo cafe seats, and green-painted wood chairs upholstered in brown naugahyde. Throw them all together in an unassuming hole-in-the-wall, and they just worked. The colors and the mix of seating styles with the almost western architecture (giant oak bar, scuffed hardwood floors, stucco exterior) all just came together in an unpolished harmony.

Have you ever stumbled on happy accidents of decor that just appeal to you? It's an unexpected surprise with results that are tough to replicate when you're trying.
