The design at The Painted Lady Restaurant is simply elegant. The husband-and-wife owners, Jessica Bagley and Allen Routt, restored a beautiful Victorian home in downtown Newberg, an ode to the painted lady movement that began in San Francisco and slowly rippled across the United States. When breathing life back into old homes, owners were required to paint in three or more ebullient colors, marrying balance and whimsy, elegance and plume.
A nostalgic white picket fence garlanded with wild roses frames the home. The porch is set for lounging, with lemon accents, plum-hued window frames and earthy wicker chairs.
The interior of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is understated elegance. The tables are dressed in white, and the room is aglow. Candles twinkle like stars, with one wall of glimmering lights and glassware set like a night sky constellation. Antique mirrors and candle sconces adorn the walls. Delicate white chandeliers dangle from a white-washed ceiling. A candelabra fireplace casts soft light over honey-hued wood floors. Essentially, on an evening at The Painted Lady, everything sparkles.
