Inspired by California beach cafes, Alexander Evangelou and James Waterworth of London design firm Alexander Waterworth Interiors bring their own brand of microclimate design Hally’s , a new deli in  Parsons Green, in  the heart of southwest London.  Photography by Helen Cathcart .  Above: Y ellow Tolix stools set the beach tone in the main room, where they're paired with whitewashed bricks and a bar built from  limed scaffolding boards. Above: The Carrara marble countertop is framed with wood. Above: Bright colors mixed with pastels exude a Southern Californian vibe. Above: The communal tables are also made from scaffolding boards. (For Corbin Bernsen's bedside shelves from scaffolding, see Backyard Bunkhouse, Hollywood Royal Family Edition .) Above: Open shelves fashioned from scaffolding have a pleasing informality. Above: Raw bentwood chairs have been carefully dip-dyed in pastels to add color throughout the space.  Above: Potted herbs are dotted around the room.  Above: The white-wood shiplap in the back room is a detail borrowed from beach hut design. See Expert Advice: The Enduring Appeal of Shiplap to get the look.  Above: Blue-and-white ikat and ticking fabrics bring a nautical air to the back room.  Above: Green wall lights with subtle brass details add to the warm glow. (For similar options, see 5 Favorites: Wall Lights for Less Than $125 and Cedar & Moss: A Bright New Lighting Company .) Above: A patchwork of blue-and-white tiles line the bathroom walls.  Above: The facade opens up entirely for al fresco dining; in bad weather, the large glazed openings allow light in. Two years ago,   Waterworth Interiors transformed our notions about fish-and-chips shops in its design of   Kerbisher & Malt .   Planning a trip to London?
