Exquisitie lighting November 21, 2010
Last night, we enjoyed a nice dinner at a lovely restaurant, Townhall, built of brick, after the 1906 earthquake, in San Francisco. It was originally a marine repair facility, and the bricks used to build it were charred from a fire during the quake…probably previously used in a demolished building. A local artist was exhibited on the walls and the amazing light fixtures hang from the ceiling. The round disks that are behind each bulb are actually like circular cut-outs of heavy metal screening.
The bulbs cast a soft warm tone on the whole room, making it feel like the best possible place, to wait out a storm.
Good lighting sets the stage for great times.
