Inspiration for a Tea Room.

Hello after such a long hiatus. Everyone has their own dream. The epitome for me would be to design and own a hotel but for now, a Tea Room and Lounge would be fun. So I have put together my own inspiration board. Having said that, of course, there are a few missing items like how the counter will look like or the right tables. This is as close as it will get.

This will run from 1/4 below the counter and the whole floor. These lovely concrete geometric tiles are from Granada Tiles from the Echo collection.

The back wall behind the counter will be with White Carrara Marble Beveled Subway (Metro) Tiles.

Overhanging the counter, these vintage "Mayday" Lamps with wooden handles will hang. These are mounted onto an old pallet which makes a great statement piece especially when storing stuff on top of them. These are from Typewriter Boneyard on Etsy (

Part of the counter will incorporate an old haberdashery shop display cabinet. This one is great as it has
a combination of drawers and a display shelf. The bar counter will be marble topped, with a 3/4 wood base and 1/4 geometric tile like the flooring.

These lovely brass and marble stools will be at the bar counter as seating. These are from Rhaspsody Attic from Etsy (

I would have gotten bistro table version of this lovely Carve table by Bethan Gray (

For seating, Thonet's Bentwood no. 14 or now known as 214, in beechwood and rattan like above. 

And of course a couple of these Thonet no. 9 or 209.

For a long dining table, a Muuto Adaptable table in Oak and Grey would be my choice. (

Will also be a Daybed One by Another Country ( but upholstered in Liberty Upholstery Fabric, Kate Nouveau Print Linen, together with  Bethan Gray Carve rectangle coffee table.

A Paper Mache Carousel Horse from Rhapsody Attic sits in the corner.
