9 Gorgeous Restaurants We Want to Live In
We find interior design inspiration everywhere… in films and on television, in architecture, in magazines, and during our travels. The list goes on. But one place we often find ourselves inspired is restaurants. There are natural similarities between culinary spaces and our homes. Restaurants have dining rooms and bars, sitting areas, coat racks, and bathrooms—if we didn't need a bedroom and a shower, we'd be tempted to move right in!
Needless to say, a restaurant is a great place to get inspired. On that note, we thought we’d take a look back at some of our favourites that we’ve featured here on Domaine, and share with you what we loved most about each space. We hope you see something you love.

Designed by Studio Ilse, the lounge in Hong Kong restaurant Duddell's does it for us in so many ways: great rugs, sculptural furniture, and perfect colour choices.
The modern rustic sitting area in Farmshop Marin, designed by sought-after design firm Commune, is one we would literally move right into.
We're coveting the tropical wallpaper chosen by Karen Gallo for her design of SoHo restaurant Galli.
The marble bar at this farmhouse-inspired hot spot hasn't escaped our memory since we first saw it two years ago.
The gallery wall at Mexico City's Malamén, designed by Ricardo Casas Design, is totally on-point with its vintage photography, metallic touches, charming illustrations, and intriguing sculptural objects.
New Zealand-inspired neighbourhood spot The Musket Room in Manhattan's Nolita neighbourhood won us over with its handsome walnut and ocean blue leather seating. We'd love to design a cosy library with those materials.
The turquoise-and-black tile in the bathroom of Petit Trois, designed by Domaine's own editor-at-large Estee Stanley, manages to be both elegant and fun.
We loved the salvaged wood touches Lisa Vanderpump added to her West Hollywood restaurant, PUMP.
Our hearts skipped a beat when we saw the custom brass and leather stools Zachary Lynd designed for his Midtown East restaurant, The Upsider.
