Colorova Patisserie by Guillaume Gil, Paris

December 22nd, 2012 by retail design blog

It is designed primarily focusing on leisurely experience since pastry shops are known to possess many good things especially in a country like Paris. The restaurant design of Colorova is focused on modernity and vibrancy – creating a dynamic design.

Guillaume Gil opened the pastry shop in August along with his fiancée, Charlotte Siles. They began their career paths parallel to each other – pastry world for Gil and management for Siles. They found each other and the story goes on from their until they found their dream location to build their own place – hence Colorova was conceived and born. Colorova was previously a dimly lit massage parlor situated in view of their alma mater, which they transformed and created a wonderful and beautiful restaurant and a pastry shop at that.

It is this kind of place they wanted to spend time with their selves and this is apparent in the restaurant interiors and its decors. A lot of tea houses found in Paris took on traditional styling and the owners/designers of the place wanted a different image – a unique kind of space. In view of this, they opted for modern pieces with deliberate mixed patterns and clear-cut color scheme inspired primary of Siles’ childhood in Portugal, Thailand and Tunisia.

Siles traveled a lot when she was a kid and because of this she developed passion or preference for exotic styles. Colorova, in Polish, literally means ‘multicolored’ and this concept was the one they used to design the architecture and the products they offer – delicious desserts. The amazing restaurant has a modern yet cozy space style and if you add the time-tested confections and deliciously fresh menu – this is already more than enough of a draw. In my opinion, this space created a home-away-from-home atmosphere.
