A lively color palette

Architect Delphine Gebran, inspired by the freshness, vibrancy and natural beauty of ingredients, draws inspiration from these qualities and natural hues to create a lively color palette. Every detail in this vibrant space is a celebration of fresh and invigorating mediterranean ingredients. It is a testament to the beauty and vitality of the natural world. A place where the joy of cooking and the vibrancy of nature come together to create a culinary-inspired atmosphere. The space is a fusion of artistry and craftsmanship that immerses you in a poetic scene where fauna and flora blend in. The floor in a delicious shade of Tyrian purple recalls the rich shades of aubergine and beetroot.


Looking around, your eyes are drawn to the yellow upholster chairs that populates the room like rays of sunshine. The chairs are crafted with a warm yellow hue, reminiscent of the radiant glow of lemons and oil. The furniture is designed with a sleek and modern aesthetic, embodying the freshness and vitality found in nature’s bounty. The combination of purple, yellow, and green creates a harmonious palette that stimulates the senses and invites guests to savor the atmosphere as much as the flavors.
