The space is all about quirky set-ups-Bombay Velvet meets modern quirk. Attractive wallpaper patterns- developed keeping in mind the strong yet fluid nature of Art Nouveau. Very much like the strong-minded women who are the inspiration, the prints have the gentleness of the essence of being a woman but at the same time the strong mindedness of a strong willed individual. These prints represent a strong direction while being delicate and gentle in appearance. Subtle yet with a strong language, the prints and colors work hand in hand to create the collection.
Photo displays– Some rare photographs of the Divas over the golden era of Hindi films adorn the walls of the restaurant, soothing color palette- ranging from soft blues to lemons to pale oranges, shades of greens to soft pinks, peaches and nude, the color palette is a plethora of shades of colors that have not used before.
The space has been dressed with original vintage décor elements like cameras, typewriters, binoculars, vintage fans, lamps, table fans and women vanity items like combs, hand embroidered velvet pouches, hand mirrors and many other knick knacks collected over a period of time from across the country. The space leaps to a novel curve in the realm of fine dining, offering an environment never seen before in the food industry of the capital.
