A Farm-to-Table Restaurant with Organic Appeal

Last year, restaurateurs Aimee Olexy and Stephen Starr joined forces to create Talula’s Garden, a 102-seat restaurant in Philadelphia with the spirit of a gardener’s dinner table. Olexy designed the space herself, in conjunction with landscape design firm Groundswell. She likes “organic, undesigned spaces,” a contrast to Starr’s usual hyper-designed approach.

Click through to see beautiful photos of the organic appeal of the space. For the full story, visit Remodelista.

Above: Wall tiles and colored glass pendants lend a Moroccan vibe to the front entrance and bar.
