Nestled inside the common beach resort of Hua Hin, Thailand, the When Upon a Cream ice-cream parlor is brimming with delightful modern day retail design and style, a decadent departure to the extraordinary developed by Bangkok-primarily based MADA Design and style Factory.
Peppermint pinwheel cafe tables, assorted copper-operates and a palette concocted of creamy whites and minty hues sets the tone for this mini ice-cream factory. Cogs and wheels likened to a sweet factory greet at the vestibule entrance of this whimsical storefront, enticing passersby with dreams of scrumptious, frozen offerings. What an imaginative concept!
After inside the pastel-flavored shop, a handful of separate tables and lounging location welcome consumers, while an adjacent ice-cream counter delivers the creamy treats. A gleaming copper menu board lists the many creamy creations including flavors like cotton candy, marble fudge and mocha chip, and is set into glossy white brick “subway” tiles, which are then juxtaposed against a wall painted a lush, pale aqua. The shop’s fluffy chair pillows and wooden-stool seating carries this seaside hue by way of. Exposed piping across the ceiling and walls mimics this warm metal and is picked up all through the interiors, expanding even to the modern restrooms.
The ceiling depicts floating clouds, making an ethereal experience for the ice-cream recipient. A framed mirrored back wall represents a window, reflecting the beachside neighborhood exactly where this modern retail space resides inside.
The After Upon a Cream ice-cream shop undoubtedly draws a Willy-Wonka vibe although catering to a carefreee crowd looking for sweets in an inviting, contemporary ambiance.
