Though ordinary from outside, this newer Kansas store, besides sporting a newer design concept, is one of the first I can remember seeing with (corporate) artwork and decorative tile in the bathroom.

This store looks pretty neat, for sure, but I also like the funky colors of the apartments in the background.

After all the interviews I've given during which I profess that all Starbucks do not look alike, I've been paying closer attention to their unique elements. In this case, everything looks standard except for the way that a corporate painting is framed by an entire section of wall.
