Morag Myerscough designs Colorful Cafe in Bernie Grants Arts Centre
British designer Morag Myerscough transformed a cafe inside the Bernie Grands Art Centre in London, with bold colors and triangular patterns!
Morag Myerscough is a talented British designer that is fascinated by vibrant colors and vivid artwork. The words big, bright and bold are often associated with the artist’s work, following a signature color pallet and passionate graphic designs. In a world where minimalism has taken over, her projects come alive to add color to the spaces.
Recently, Myerscough turned a cafe inside the Bernie Grand Arts Center in London, into a fun little interior on which a wide diversity of colors come together for a celebration. Yellow, blue, orange, pink are just a few on the list. Coloured textiles, tiles and innovative furnishings come alive in perfect balance inside the 10 year old, David Adjaye-designed building.
To ensure her work’s trademark, Myerscough opt to cover the walls and furniture with bold geometric patterns to create a sense of “exuberance and enthusiasm”.
The old furnishings were also refurbished with contrasting, vibrant colors, while a partnership with artist Luke Morgan enabled the creation of new pieces using reclaimed materials.
Myerscough explains that along the years the cafe had lost its intent, therefore she wanted to recreate the owner’s Gina Moffatt enthusiasm and love for life that she has been providing to the space.
In order to achieve that the designer had to work around the space’s existing concrete elements. The bar was one of them, which she clad in Iroko wood to add some warmth while responding to the building’s original wood paneling.
The colorful interiorfeatures plenty of greenery to provide a laid-back feel, while patterned chair designs serve as seating and triangular-patterned ceramic tiles are placed throughout the space to bring it to life.
Industrial lighting pendants are placed above the bar to emphasize a dazzling yellow toned wall. Shades of black and grey create balance throughout the space.
The interior design conveys a domestic and familiar feeling due to its grand space and large tables, which encourage conversation between clients.
