Franny Lou’s extended the kitchen into the space formerly occupied by the children’s corner, where Practical Sanctuary created a dandelion mural four years ago.

I love how they lined the shelving up with one cluster of dandelions, and placed a bottle under the ones growing from the ceiling.

Good design isn’t rigid. It’s about the space, not about itself. We deliberately created a mural which was subtle, blending with the overall vibe of the café, not competing for attention.

Because creativity isn’t a one-time thing. It’s an ongoing process. And trying to freeze it in place takes the joy out of it.
