Tibits, W1
The colour and opulence of the West End restaurant is inspired by the extravagant décor of Europe's great opera houses
From cutting-edge coffee shops to heavenly hotels, London is bursting with stylish venues and their interiors can easily be replicated in your home.

In our new Steal the style series, our design writers visit some of the capital's most striking spaces and show how to get a similar look without breaking the bank.

First up is vegetarian restaurant tibits in Heddon Street, off Regent Street, where glamour comes with the meat-free menu.

Founded in Switzerland, tibits has brought a new kind of dining experience to the West End. The healthy dishes are served in vibrant, theatrical surroundings.

It's opulent yet on trend, inspired by the baroque and rococo extravagance of Europe's great opera houses.

Rich moss and berry wall coverings are matched by a palette of stunning pearl and bronze paints.

Swiss interiors specialist Wohn-In AG worked with London's Designers Guild studio to create a vibe that could jazz up any dining area - with a few key pieces, the look is surprisingly achievable.
