5 Decorating Ideas We Can Learn From The Dessert Kitchen
Satisfy your sweet tooth and design cravings in this charming hangout in Power Plant Mall
If you like something sweet as much as the next Pinoy, you might take delight in The Dessert Kitchen located on the third floor of Power Plant Mall. Originally from Hong Kong, The Dessert Kitchen is the brainchild of Brian Lam and Dominic Li and has more than 20 branches all over the world. It was brought to Manila by HTCG, the same team behind Lugang Café and Tuan Tuan.
The look of this local Dessert Kitchen is sweet but not cloying—just like its desserts. If you're looking for ways on how to improve your space, here are five decorating ideas you can do to hit the sweet spot just right:
1. Paint your faux brick wall with more than just one paint color.
We like a white painted brick wall as much as the next gal but perhaps now is the time to shake things up a bit. Rather than the usual white brick wall, why not paint a scene? In the case of The Dessert Kitchen, they painted the entire wall to depict the façade of a building. They completely went with it—people, animals, and even furniture!
2. Make a gallery wall that is beyond picture frames.
Gallery walls have become the rage these past years. And while we like looking at happy photos of friends and family or even lovely art, maybe it’s time to give them new companions. Why not hang other things like letters and plates together with the frames?
3. Hang multiple small mirrors instead of a huge one.
Ditch the expected big mirror over the buffet table and hang multiple small mirrors instead. In this case, the small circular mirrors certainly complement the rather boxy wooden drawers of the cabinet.
4. Break a living wall with a print, a work of art, or even a wall fountain.
We like our living wall as thick with plants as it can get but some may not agree. Break up the greenery with something unnatural like a sculpture, a mirror, or even a big framed work of art.
5. Spruce up the kitchen island with tiles instead of stone facing.
Lighten up the look of your kitchen by using decorative tiles as facing for your kitchen island. You need not cover it entirely with tiles but use it as an accent. Take your cue from The Dessert Kitchen and install just three rows in the middle to create a statement.
The Dessert Kitchen is located at the 3rd floor, Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, Makati City. For updates, follow their Facebook page.
