COLOURlovers has an interior design trend section that shows a wide range of projects ranging from cool grey to cobalt blue. Featured on COLOURlovers is a D.C deli and apartment project, the Patten + Mazza Home that combines cool,natural, and earthy colours.
Pazza and Patten both used off-the-shelf Ikea cabinets in their kitchens. They customized them by raising them up a few inches and dropping a sink into a store-bought table, which serves as the counter top.
For the deli below Mazza and Patten added a roll-up garage door that opens onto the street, allowing patrons to dine en plein air despite zoning restrictions on sidewalk tables.
