random idea: colors
i do a lot of various research in the name of the restaurant venture. some very useful (like city zoning codes or liquor licensing processes) and some the Aloke thinks are sort of a waste of time (like collage project steps for the tables or original recipes for rum cocktails). i think all of the things i learn along the way are useful. recently i found some great sites for color ideas and palettes, COLOURlovers and design seeds. this may not be the most needed resource right now, but it inspires me and may come in handy when we’re actually ready to talk about wall colors, flooring, furniture, curtains, lighting, etc.
