Postino Wine Café

Diamond in the Rough

Xan shares Upward Projects’ passion for rustic buildings ready for new life. Collaborating with this design forward client delights and pushes our creative solutions to new heights. Each café location is immaculately restored to create a welcoming atmosphere tailored to the neighborhood demographic. The design honors the building’s physical and cultural history with a focus on warm wood, an energetic color palette, bold patterns, mid century textures and eclectic statement pieces that make the space truly unique.

“She pushes back in a really healthy way,” said Postino founder Lauren Bailey, who had been doing her own designs prior to involving Xan. “She wasn’t trying to come in and make it about her.”
