Sweet Melissa’s provides specialty cupcakes and cakes for all occasions. The layout of the space was kept open, simple, and clean. One half of the narrow suite was for dining, the other half incorporated a long, open counter to display to highlight the variety of cake and cupcake flavors and designs. Helix designed a mezzanine for clients to meet with the baker and discuss themes/ideas for their personal dessert creations.
Finishes were kept simple and unobtrusive to allow for the product to be the focal point. Traditional black/white checker board flooring with high painted wood wainscot and molding represents a hint of the French bakery theme that the Client desired. A soft pastel mint green finishes off the upper walls of the space, and a chocolate mousse color was added to the high ceilings for contrast.
