Success Story: Painting and Decorating a Large International Restaurant
Paramount Fine Foods is a well-recognised, fast-growing Middle Eastern hospitality chain in North America. Before opening their new restaurant in Kensington, London, they asked The Good Painter to help them create an environment that referenced Lebanese culture whilst expanding their business to cater to the London market.
Paramount wanted to create a space that emphasised their branding and concept to the London market. They wanted to create an environment that exhibits the heritage and food culture of Lebanon while fitting in with London’s modern and sophisticated style. It was also important that the project was completed quickly and efficiently so that the restaurant could open on time.
Firstly, the ceiling paint and non-feature wall were painted the same colour for an atmospheric combination. This simple colour complemented the floor tiling by Ceramica sant’Agostino, which embraced cultural influence and helped to create an authentic atmosphere.
Our painters and decorators used an Artisan Tadelakt Assassi Grey finish for the feature wall, creating an impact on the chain and having a statement. Tadelakt is a waterproof plaster surface used in Moroccan structures, the result? A softer feel and genuine atmosphere which distinguishes chains within the area and beating competition.
For the basement we used Cole and Son wallpaper to match the green finishing of the furniture. This specific wallpaper was picked to fit the colour scheme as well as having an unusual but stimulating pattern which would fit the overall feel of the restaurant. Paramount followed a continuous colour scheme for a co-ordinated and sophisticated image.
Creating focal points in the restaurant is an excellent way to grab attention. Working with a geometric theme, our team, in agreement with the client decided to use wall panelling, in harmony with the wallpaper for a unique look, without being too overpowering. This created a perfect balance of the eccentric Lebanese style with the modern London nature.
Powder Coated Frames: Pearl Mouse Grey RAL 7048
Paramount had an interior that they could be proud of which would enable customers to connect with them through the authenticity and the story of their brand.
