Paint Colors for Seattle Coffee Works

Posted by Emily Lauderback on

We love doing commercial work! It allows us to bring the spirit of the brand into the environment of the establishment through the use of architectural color. While color is a key component of graphic design and branding, the same color principles definitely don't translate architecturally. Using the brand's main colors as accents and splashes of color works best. Where our skill really comes in is finding the neutrals for most of the painted surfaces to hold it all together.


We also have to point out the dark, coffee-colored ceiling. So many of our clients are afraid to use this approach, but these photos illustrate how a dark ceiling actually lifts it. Mother Nature provides this for us with a dark night sky. We love to create the same sort of feeling inside through the use of dark colors on the ceiling. We know that what feels best to us outside we can create intentionally with color inside. Mother Nature is one of the best architectural color consultants we know!
