20 Deep was to be designed within the style of a minimal Scandinavian/Industrial feel. I leaned on natural elements such as wood, cork, and metal. The color pallet is gray, black, and white. As I started, I envisioned an artistic expression of roots extending twenty feet into the earth. Initially, I wondered if we could have a wood carving of this added to the front of the bar. In the end, we chose to create a mural depicting this on the wall behind the taps.
The furnishings needed to be comfortable and inviting but not too fussy, so we sourced beautiful commercially rated options and wove them into the design plan. I enjoy growing plants and various trees at home. Repeatedly, I have had a fiddle leaf fig grow high enough to reach the ceiling in my garden room. Ironically, I seem to always have a project with a soaring ceiling that could accommodate one of my “not so little” fiddle leaf figs. As I write this, one happily resides in a basket, in front of The Founder's Corner nestled by a window, with enough ceiling space to grow and flourish. I love when things just click!
