Restaurant ceiling decor is our favorite source of residential and commercial decor inspiration. Each and every time we go out to eat, we cannot help but glance at the ceiling. So, last Friday when Uncle Andy and Annie flew into town, we picked him up at the airport and drove to The Corner Drafthouse, a new brew pub near the airport, for a quick lunch. The restaurant had the perfect “welcome to San Diego vibe” – good food, a fun atmosphere, a great selection of artisan beers and Bloody Marys and yes, decorative ceiling tiles.
We are not sure whether the ceilings are actual antique copper tiles or if they are faux tin tiles but in either case, the ceiling tiles were intricate and reflected light in a beautiful way. We took lots of pictures but realized our phone photos of the restaurant, and specifically its ceilings, did not rival the professional photos we later found on Corner Drafthouse’s website. Check out both the restaurant photos and our “Get the Look” ideas below.

As always, to replicate the look, we turned to our friend Milan over at Decorative Ceiling Tiles. Here are some of the tiles he suggested that would work to achieve a similar look to the ceilings at The Corner Drafthou. Our favorite is still the classic, Tiny Tulips. It seems to work in pretty much every setting. It is ornate, with lots of dimension, yet not over the top .
And one final thought >> whenever you go out to eat, remember to look up!
Make it a beautiful day!
