Commercial Spaces to Copy at Home

Once in a while I will walk into a commercial space, usually a store or restaurant, and instantly think "I would love to live here." Do you ever get that feeling? 

There is just something about these spaces that speak to me. Whether it is a paint color I would love to have in my home, furnishings that would look perfect in my space or a light fixture I covet, it always amazes me how inspiration can strike me in the most unlikely places.

Check out these gorgeous commercial spaces that have style worth copying in your own home.

There are many things I love about this space including the black wall against the brick. To duplicate this look in your space, paint a wall black and add an interesting wall decal next to a stone or brick wall or fireplace. The beautiful wood floor would look great in any space. Industrial style lighting works perfectly with the overall design. The chunky wood counter would translate well into a kitchen island or console table.

Clean lined modern spaces are relaxing to me. Everything about this space would translate well into any home. Light wood cabinets and medium tone wood floors work well with white walls. A simple table with bucket chairs in a sophisticated taupe are easy to duplicate at home. Add neutral table linens and a statement light fixture and you have this style nailed.

White done right. Mostly white spaces provide the perfect backdrop for your accessories. A contrasting wood floor provides just the right balance to the white table, lighting and cabinetry. Add in pops of color and texture (like the baskets) for a beachy, relaxed feel.

Want a feminine space or looking to decorate a girls room? This color palette has it all. Bright chartreuse green, bubble gum pink and white make for a sweet space. The polka dot wall decals add interest to the white wall and make the chartreuse soffit pop. The cylinder shaped pendant light would look great hung above a nightstand or over a desk. Accents of teal, green and yellow add the finishing touch.

International design magazine Visual Merchandising and Store Design (VMSD) featured the brand Graphica developed for Sweeterie, a chic new Cincinnati-based cupcake bakery, on its cover. Graphica designed the logomark and color palette for the retail space as well as the bakery’s marketing materials.

Create an inviting outdoor space like this. Soft neutrals, a comfy upholstered loveseat, simple elevated lanterns and a oversized pendant light make this a space you want to relax in. Put it all under a white, roofed arbor and you have got yourself one amazing space to hang out.

Bring this look inside to create an elegant dining space. Paint or wallpaper one wall in a dark moody hue. Add a round mirror in distressed wood or brushed gold hung above a stylish console table. The round dining table echos the shape of the mirror and the upholstered chairs add elegance. Finish with stylish lamps and an oversized burlap or linen fixture for instant sophistication. Adding curtains to the room's entryway creates a cozy and glamorous space.
