From Bakery-Inspired Boutiques to Industrial Ice Cream Shops

 - Jul 16, 2012
In a world filled with candies and confections, pastry shop designs tend to lean towards whimsical and colorful interiors. Since pastries tend to be on the colorful side already, some designers are choosing clean-cut displays to highlight the goods. Others are opting to go all-out candy couture, with striped walls and vibrant furnishings.

The process of making pastries and chocolates is fascinating in itself and as a result, many chefs are looking to educate consumers about their products. Whether that involves taffy being pulled on a giant hook or chocolate fountains trickling down the counter, these whimsical touches create one-of-a-kind retail experiences.

While it's hard to recreate the magic of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, these pastry shop designs are certainly whimsical and playful in their own right.
