Bringing a somewhat southerly vibe to Birmingham, this neat West Country chain boasts a family friendly service, a choice of hearty food including vegan recipes all against a charming and cosy backdrop. You can’t miss this cosy establishment, set in a large traditional Edwardian corner building on the edge of Corporation street, the Café welcomes with a spacious glass front entrance and multiple large glass windows, giving a fresh inviting approach.
A chequerboard style walkway greets you at the door reinforcing it’s Edwardian roots reinforcing it’s Edwardian roots, but that’s were the historical references end and a more industrial stripped back look takes hold. Distressed wood panels sit opposite exposed brick walls and metal cladding whilst industrial vents and piping fill the ceiling. The industrial theme is further reinforced with retro iron seating and rustic outdoor cage lighting that line the bar, as well as more industrial pendants over the dining area. Soft leather creates a cosier ambience.
Whilst using hard and raw materials for the décor, the choice of lime washed wood creates a subtle blue and green tone to the interior which altogether softens the harsh industrial feel.
To recreate a distressed laid-back vibe in your home choose white or lime washed wood panelling together with distressed wood and metal furniture. Mix in some rustic bronze and stainless steel finished accessories such as clocks and caged pendant lights to reflect the industrial aspect. Floors with patterned tiles will create a talking point and give a nostalgic vibe. The look should be uncluttered and laid back, finish off with complimenting lime and blue coloured throws and scatter cushions.
