3 Takeaways on How to Create a Happy Place—a Review On the Design of Elle Decor Cafe 2020

We came across an article this morning about Elle Decor Cafe 2020 in Plaza Hotel New York  and immediately fell in love with the unique decor that is modern, youthful, feminine and chic yet still keeping  a old-world charm. Not surprisingly, the make-over design work is by renowned interior designer Sasha Bikoff whose design, in our opinion, is very UN-American—out-of-box, playful, chic and romantic in a very lady-like way. Since today is Friday, we want to talk about the design of this pretty cafe and hope to bring some weekend cheers to you.

The ELLE Decor Café at the Plaza is located at the famed Rose Club, which was once a popular venue for entertainers like Billie Holiday, Bob Hope, Liza Minnelli, and Kay Thompson. Along with showcasing her passion for energetic, global-inspired interiors, Bikoff reimagined the iconic space to reflect its rich jazz roots.

1. color Palette: “Since the Plaza is such a happy, colorful, monumental place, it was really important that I used a light color. We did have these more traditional jewel tones, but I wanted to brighten up the space with pink and lavender to balance all of the wood paneling. One really wonderful thing is that the ceiling lights can turn purple, so it worked out perfectly that I had a fabric that was red (a connection to the Rose Club) and lavender (a connection to the lights on the ceiling).”—Sasha Bikoff

We love the interplay between  pink  and rouge to create such  a happy and romantic atmosphere.

3. Fabric is the key to add elegance, sophistication and re-freshness to a happy place. ““My first element that I introduced was my new fabric pattern, Uptown Toile, which is coming out during Maison & Objet’s event next year. The fabric that was in the space prior was a damask, so my fabric, which is a fun take on an 18th century French toile, goes with the whole idea of a European old world elegance. That said, the toile is also really cheeky, with a scene of a Brigitte Bardot-esque woman walking down 5th ave with two poodles. That was my fun ode to the jazzy, party space. The pattern makes a connection to the Plaza and what it stands for.”—Sasha Bikoff
