Velvet Cantina
Commercial; San Francisco, CA

Golds and copper tones glow in this San Francisco restaurant design.


Copper leather banquettes and copper painted walls, paired with gilded accents, and an artisanal mural give warmth to this neighborhood Mission bar stylized after a Mexican bordello.  Dramatic focal lighting is installed to highlight the painted ladies and wrought iron chandeliers hang from recessed light wells painted in gold for a flattering glow.
