Having refurbished the private dining room “Upstairs” at the Shoulder of Mutton in Middleton Tyas for owners Fran and Kevin Hacking, GMW Interiors were delighted to be asked in early 2015 to undertake the renovation of their next venture; The Blacksmiths in North Cowton.
The brief was to create a fresh, stylish and contemporary space with a quiet ‘wow’ factor, whilst still maintaining the cosiness of a village pub.
The dated red and green décor was replaced with a smart dark blue and feature wallpapers were added in both the restaurant and conservatory. Leaded glass panels were replaced with wrought ironwork and a fantastic wood floor that had been hidden under a well worn carpet was given a new lease of life. Industrial style light fittings, leather banquette seating and reclaimed timber tables complete the look.
