Vintage Lounge Inspiration for Vintage Lounge was taken from the movie Casablanca and the timeless elegance of French cafes. B. Berry Interiors balanced old and new while maintaining the juxtaposition of light and dark in the rustic-luxe space. A color scheme of gilded gold and creamy white is warmed up with wooden plank floors, hand- plastered walls, mohair-upholstered seats and velvet banquettes. The barrel ceiling was gold-leafed by local artisans and then hand- plastered to let gold peek through. Behind the bar, an elaborate wine shelving system holds many bottles on display.

An elaborate raw bar with counter seat- ing — the focus of the 140-seat dining room — features shelving holding metal sheet pans packed with bags of shelled oysters. The shelving is highlighted by an intricate metal fixture overhead. Bright blue and white porcelain seafood towers add pops of color to the muted interior palette. The open kitchen next to the raw bar features a wood-burning oven. An outdoor patio with a bar opens up during the warmer months. Images courtesy of Andrew Cebulka
