The Pine Room Décor

Listen to this story
I guess if there was a place like that now everyone would go “this is fantastic!” It actually had dark wood fake walls and brown carpet with orange concentric circle patterns on it and these columns that were wood clad with gold banding. And back then people would do those full painted window decorations and it had ‘The Pine Room’ written on it in that wood pine lettering, which possibly influenced my work now that I  think of it and it had a swiss chalet type scene on it…
