This is why we want to share the terracotta colored Fonda Mexican eatery in Melbourne by Studio Esteta:
1// In a nutshell:
A perfect balanced composition of terracotta hues and earthy materials makes of Fonda Mexican restaurant in Melbourne a fresh take in today’s interior scene. Designed by up-coming Studio Esteta, the interior draws its inspiration for color and textures from both the rustic architectures of Mexico and the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakech.
2// What draw our attention the most:
The interior combines some of the current main trends with a fun, bright design approach that reflect the brand personality: rusty encaustic tiles, arched rattan screens and several terrazzo elements can be found in the space creating an unpretentious atmosphere. A light and bright color palette dominate the space, with accents of nude, rust and powder blue tones. Both the color composition and the texture election reveal the many inspirations for this project. From one side, we can see a clear reference to the work of Mexican architect Luis Barragán, whose use of raw textures, bold colors and simple but striking forms are at the base of the design. On the other, the coastal surroundings are reflected in the powder blue hues and curved ceiling to the front dining area.
3// The bigger picture
Earth toned palette and terrazzo pieces have been seen for quite some time now in many interiors projects, from luxury stores to surreal cafès, including photo studio and event locations and it doesn’t seem to have come to an end.
