Johnny called the painters in. I was rather shocked that he didn’t first consult me about it. He may be the owner but I’m the manager of this cafe, and there’s a reason for that. You can’t just call people in to do renos on the place without first making the relevant considerations. For example, you wouldn’t just go out and get yourself a wedding suit without first considering what the bridesmaids and groomsmen will be wearing, would you? No. As for redecorating and refurbishing a cafe, this is a delicate and complex operation. I mean, our business depends upon the happiness and adoration of our customers. Painters in Melbourne will do a good job no matter what, but you’ve got to know how to direct them. That’s where I come in.
While I was researching about decorating cafes and restaurants, I discovered many interesting facts about colours and the psyche. I’m sure many of you are aware that cool colours create space and calm feelings whereas warm colours produce a cosy vice. Well, it actually goes much deeper than that. Did you know that green has the effect of causing people to crave caffeine? That’s why we have so many plants in the cafe, so that people feel the need to up-size their coffees. And lilac actually makes people hungrier, especially for whole foods and nutritious condiments. We got the exterior house painters based in Melbourne to do facade tangerine, because it has the psychological effect of drawing people in, like bees to the hive.
To think that Johnny was going to go ahead and ok the colours of the painters without these things in mine. He was going to use a dark maroon for the front, which has been shown to deter patronage in bars, cafes and pubs. We would so be out of business right now.
