My husband and I are looking at building an espresso/ coffee shop in a new development (in S. Minn.). Most of the coffee houses in our area are in earth tones with a "North Woods" feel. Any ideas for different color schemes. Our target group is adults during the day, and teens/ college students in the night. And, any web resources for picking colors, floor plans, or pictures of places. Thanks

We have new espresso stands opening in our town practically every month. Most of them look pretty similar, nothing really special. However, one of our newest, came up with a totally unique look that I love. I don't have a picture of their stand, but I do have a link to their logo. http://www.fearracing.com/pages/old_99_espresso.htm
It has a very retro feel with an old gas pump outside with their sign on top. If you go with a retro look, it should appeal to both young and old. Diner type stools are easy to find now if you have indoor seating. There are a lot of retro style products out now, so the whole look should be pretty easy to put together. Possible retro colors would be turquoise, pale yellow, light blue, sage green, lime, mango, light apricot, red, black & grey, for a few ideas. (Just a few of these, not all of them!) At least it would stand out amongst the other "North Wood" types. I've included a possible retro style design for your stamp card. Hope this helps get the ideas flowing! http://www.lastingimp.com/images/fillerup.jpg

The North Woods feel has lots of earth tones, moose and bear silhouettes, rustic cabin feel. Or a variation is the Western theme with cowboy boots, ropes and spurs. We have two such places in our town; they're both nice, but I want something different. Thanks for the suggestions.
