#HauteSpaces: The Project Café Is More Than Just An Eatery
Who doesn’t love a pretty home/work space? I know the answer to that one. So now, every week, I will go in search for the most stunning indoor spaces in our country that will inspire the inner decorator in you. Unique, colourful, or quirky, these photo stories are sure to leave you spellbound, like mouth-hanging-open spellbound. If you know or use a space that fits the description, ping me and we can chat! It can be anything from a home to an office, a studio to a restaurant — if it is fun, I’m game!
This week, I ventured into a city close to home — Ahmedabad. A cute little café in the garba city that you should definitely add to your checklist. Once you hit Polytechnic road, it is not difficult to spot this yellow bungalow, the vibes of which invite you right in. A blue door beckons you in, making you want to stand right there and gape at the beauty. The colour may be too bright for some, but for others, it looks like happiness.
It is not just your regular cafe at which to enjoy a cuppa joe. The Project Café has been done up by a group of artists, each of whom have added their own favourite piece to the space. There are racks of clothes, shelves with showpieces, funky couches with even cooler cushions, potted plants here and there, monochrome photo frames with nothing but images of eyes captured within them, and a whole lot of creativity. The tables and chairs are spread out, giving you space to think and unleash your creative juices. Books are kept for those who like a good read with their cuppa. And the food here is as amazing as the décor.
Now, this is what makes this place especially awesome — you can buy just about anything and everything you see here! The mug that you are sipping coffee out of? Take it. The wall clock that would look better in your room? Be the owner. The chair, table, rug, cushion, empty wine bottle, etc., everything is on sale. If you love the interiors, this is your chance to own it.
Whitewashed walls make everything else stand out, them raw feels make the whole space even warmer. Rectangular windows are reminiscent of the countryside. This spot is definitely a conversation starter. A trip to Gujarat, please?
