"The decor of Gracias Madre restaurant in West Hollywood mirrors its organic, vegan fare: inspired by Mexico, but an entirely Californian affair. Interior designer Wendy Haworth, architect Victor Corona, and restaurant owner Lisa Bonbright collaborated on the space, located in a former antiques showroom that had been subdivided into small, dark rooms. They began demolition right away, revealing original brick walls and a dramatic bow truss ceiling overhead. When it came to the interiors, Haworth added Mexican-inflected decor guided by the do-good ethos of Gracias Madre: “sustainability, community, and reverence for Mother Earth.” To Haworth, that meant a space that was bright and inviting, full of artisanal wares and handmade finishes. “We designed our own custom handwoven chairs and wrought iron light fixtures, and used original embroidered fabrics and carved wood items throughout,” she said."
