formafatal used a bright color palette which extends to the sheet metal, paintings, ceramic tiles, and furniture used. the monochrome tiles are accented by symbols typical of mexico such as the ‘sombrero’ hats as well as brightly lit, stylized cacti. other features include plastic garlands imported directly from mexico and woven pillows featuring the sun from the ‘burrito loco’ logos.
