The big white room converted to a warm catering facility was done with the feel of an art nouveau garden dining experience. The existing Italian glass chandeliers were re-purposed to fit in the lower ceiling areas, where higher niches were built for them. The walls and upholstery were designed with soft pinks and mauves for a warm glow good for the guests skin tones. Hand painting on the ceiling rafters was also in the art nouveau motif. Cotton mesh curtains were hung from the ceilings by strings of colorful beads.
