Commissioned interior design work for my client's upscale gay bar project.

The first thing I did was compile several different looks and styles to see what appeals most to them.

         
I love the clean symmetry and bold color in this modern design.

I always throw in gaudy, over-the top samples just to get a feel of the clients comfortability with trends.

Design panels above the bar give this look a dynamic appeal.

I love this clean, contemporary bar that mixes vibrant pink with warm yellows. Be sure to check out the amazing ceiling detail.

This design is driven by square patterns complementing each other.

I think clients like to see lots of different color variations so they can pick out their perfect hue.

This is a great example of modern and rustic. Wood panels set next to oversized art pieces pique both the natural and artistic senses. 

Mirrored pieces like the one seen above adds drama to any lounge.

Ok.Ok. This is a bathroom, but I think this would be the perfect inspiration for a art deco bar.

What works here is the movement of patterns and changing shapes, it gives the room a very modern, psychedelic feel thats easy to recreate. 

There are so many great things going on here: the curved bar, the moving patterns, and the ultra trendy seating.

I'm crazy about the fun chandelier and beautiful lavender tones in this one-of-a-kind nightclub.

Neons and warm tones can mix, and done properly it gives a room a stunning artistic view.

Specific lounge pieces usually come later in the process, but I wanted to add this to get the client to start thinking about seating and space. 

This is a very basic bar restaurant that was spiced up with great lighting and clean lines. 

This is a stunning minimal black, white, and red bar. The circular lamps and red accents create a beautiful balance. 

Another surprising mix that works: luxurious Victorian couches with tree stump tables. 

Natural woods mixed with neon greens give this bar a fresh, elegant feel.

My clients are undecided about a rooftop lounge. I think it works if you have outdoor pieces that can maintain durability and beauty. 

I love the floor design and bar inlets in this luxury lounge.

I love the rows of round light installations and parallel shelving.

Purple and black tones make a room look and feel dynamic and sexy.

Lighting fixtures like the one seen above give a the room an asian ambiance. 

This is a great indoor/outdoor transition. Bold colors inside, earth tones outside.

Minimalism at its finest.

This room is all about color and texture. A breathtaking balance.

As you may have noticed, I chose many vibrant color palates in this compilation due to my clients interest in bold looks, I can't wait to see the final product.
