The upturn in the amount of restaurants and bars embracing the vibrant Millennial Pink colour within the hospitality industry has seen a surprisingly sharp increase. When it is being used, it isn’t just being used sparingly, it is taking over whole interior design concepts. Hospitality specialists, Smart Hospitality Supplies, have seen this uprising unfold, and with it, have seen their clients pushed to the forefront of the industry’s style.
Working with cocktail bar, Tonight Josephine, to create bespoke menu covers to fit within their incredibly modern interior design meant only one thing – Millennial Pink. Using a vinyl material to print the precise colour on to allows the colour to shine through in the low light interior that Tonight Josephine sports. The bar’s logo was then stamped on with a matte red foil to contrast the pink sheen background.
Tonight Josephine use these menus for their cocktail list. They sit on chrome legged, tall bar tables surrounded by leather seating and pink neon lights. The contrast of the powdery pink with a sharp black and white bar and flooring brings the whole concept together and creates a vibrancy that is rare to see done is such a classy way. It is truly a space in which cocktail enthusiasts will want to spend their whole night.
Taking this further is modern French restaurant, Sketch London, situated in the infamous Mayfair in London. Sketch have dressed up an entire room in millennial pink with dashes of white and gold. The room has received global attention since its creation by architect and designer, India Mahdavi. You can’t help but be taken in by the contrast of textures within the room. From soft, suede chairs and benches to the striking shapes of metal lamps and glasses silhouetted on the tables, the room creates a relaxed, yet incredibly contemporary feel.
Being at the cutting edge of design within the hospitality industry has opened unexpected doors for the restaurant. Recently they have set up a showcase on British artist, David Shrigley. This only adds to the intrigue for the diner. Sketch call this room “The Gallery” for a reason – because it is a piece of art which captures the imagination of each of their customers.
