The Winner

About this design:

It’s time to order an espresso macchiato and pistachio macaron, and settle into a booth at your favorite pastel café. Your design should evoke the aesthetics and atmosphere of a typical Italian or French cafe one might find in the 1950s and ‘60s.


This aesthetic is known for its pastel palettes and distinct architectural details like formica furniture and light-filled arched windows to soft-colored banquettes and tiles. Challenge yourself to think beyond just croissants and demitasse cups for this one.
