What does a restaurant interior designer do?
When opening a cafe, restaurant, or bar, you need to be prepared for competition. Dozens of new establishments are closing & opening every day all over the world, and the priority becomes grabbing the customers attention.
In this race, the winners are usually establishments where every detail is carefully thought out. This applies not only to the menu, location, and way of promotion but also to the design & function of the space.
The restaurant interior designer takes care of all the necessary elements to make the restaurant stand out from the crowd.
“Local Designer Has Deep Daniel Island Roots”
“Born in Anderson, South Carolina, Mollie is a true grit.
Interior designer Mollie Bean, could be considered a homegrown historian for Daniel Island. As a young girl Bean remembers her father, architect Chris McCarthy, bringing her to Daniel Island to hunt. We would go turkey hunting in the marsh, likely where my house now stands. Back-roading really, as there were only some dirt paths that led to fields, Bean said.
After spending 13 years in New York City, Bean decided to return to Daniel Island over 5 years ago and raise her family. In 2015, she started a successful interior design business, MB Within.
Previously she was a project manager for a high end Architecture firm in NY. She is able to mesh all aspects of her previous experience and design to have a seamless outcome.
