The Fashionista and I recently went to lunch at Modern Steak. I was instantly struck by how Draperesque the decor was. Dorothy herself would have been happy to have dined here. It is as if the dazzling designer, Cathy Hayes, perhaps channeled Draper.
The effervescent chandeliers have classic lines with a bubbly twist.
I am saving this image in the personal style file of my mind. The chair finish looks like silver leaf which perhaps could be recreated with a bit of spray paint if I am lucky enough to discover an open backed beauty. The true va va va voom comes from the tasseled corseting detail. It was held in place by upholstery staples. (Aren’t you glad I inspected this piece so closely for you? :)
Touches of lavender appear throughout the restaurant~ from the gingham shirts and converse sneakers of the wait staff down to this lovely little dresser tucked into a baby blue niche. Eye Candy!
Although I don’t normally take pictures of bathrooms, this one begged for it. The mirrored ceiling reflected all of its fuchsia fabulousness. You may have heard that Arizona has recently been pummeled by rain and tornado’s so dining outside was not an option. But I loved the astro turf green of the benches alongside the tangelo chairs. A true citrusy delight.
Oh and for those of you who are foodies~ I had the pastrami on rye and Fashionista had the Kobe burger. We were both swooning with delight over the accompanying French fries.
