Bikanervala Restaurant

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — Auckland

The brief was to create a modern and colourful interior for the Indian fast food vegetarian restaurant.

Bikanervala Restaurant

A blended mosaic tile was selected for the serving counter face and black galaxy granite for the counter top. Resene Hot Toddy was used on the walls surrounding the counter. The Resene Hot Toddy had the effect of pulling the gold out of the tiles and the granite.

The beams were given an effective but subtle stencil effect in an Indian pattern. Using Resene Half Spanish White in low sheen as the base the stencil was applied using full gloss Resene Half Spanish White. This created an element of surprise as diners would discover it rather than noticing it straight away.

The balance of colour in Resene Double Putty, Resene Vindaloo and Resene Black Magic worked to create the hot colours of an Indian theme.
