Schaefer Design: Commercial

Public places, personal spaces

Barbara Schaefer - Interior Design - Vivace RestaurantHow do you make a public space, like a restaurant, feel personal? Soft, romantic colors. Intimate lighting. Unique, custom-designed features, such as decorative paint treatment. Stylish yet comfortable seating. A space plan that works for both customers and staff.

In designing the interiors for Vivace Restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, I tried to balance the customers’ enjoyment of great food, wine and conversation and the restaurant staff’s ability to serve their guests.
