Capitol Public House is a newly-renovated restaurant with a family-style concept and an elevated American menu within the heart of Eagle, Colorado.  The Zehren design team worked closely with the owner to create a classic “pub vibe...” while at the same time creating a cross between and an English pub and a western saloon.  The new eatery features a rich color palette, tufted leathers, and subtle details such as nail-head trim on the dining chairs, while the stamped tin panels at the bar front add texture and interest in an understated way.

The clean, traditional pendant lights that were a mainstay in American homes in the early 1900’s blend seamlessly with the classic antler chandeliers … again reinforcing the notion of English pub mixed with western saloon.  The rich, textured, plaid drapery acts as the backdrop to the blue-green tufted leather banquette seating.  Rust and caramel tones complement the leather and blend with the furnishings, including details such as the place settings that showcase the pub style menu.  The dining room walls within Capitol Public House have been stenciled to recall the traditional wallpaper one would find in century homes and it is juxtaposed against the traditional wood wainscot below.  The colors, patterns, and textures all combine to make for an intimate yet interesting space.
