Visit Ba Noi's for Good Food and A Little Design Inspiration
Add homey and edgy elements to your home inspired by this hangout
“While you’re enjoying your food, it’s nice to pair it with an ambiance that is conducive for enjoying your meal,” says Ba Noi’s Owner Dodgie Violago. What we loved the most about this place is its laid-back vibe that seem to complement the delicious food. Designed by interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo, the restaurant features unvarnished, wooden chairs that add warmth and bring a sense of familiarity as if you're visiting your aunt's or your grandmother's house.
If you would like to have a home that showcases Asian and industrial elements, take note of these ideas that you can easily work on:
The beauty of this restaurant is achieved by combining wood and metal elements. Choose pieces that complement each other: like wooden chairs and wire lamps. You can also have a focal point that anchors and ties the entire look together. We're so in love with the faux brick accent wall that adds texture to the space.
Stick to a black-and-white color scheme
Instead of adding pops of color through accessories, play with different shapes and textures. You can also deck your floor with geometric tiles in black and white, then add texture with distressed-finish bricks.
Go for quirky light fixtures
Depending on the look that you want to achieve, you can experiment and get creative with your lighting fixtures. To achieve the industrial feel for Ba Nois, Kristine worked with wire lamps that are available at Urban Abode, CW Home Depot, Ortigas.
Ba Noi is located at LG/L Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City.
