I love this restaurant

We’re obviously fans of Welsh tapestry fabrics so it’s fantastic to see how IlseCrawford has used classic Welsh tapestry blankets in her design for the restaurant at the Olde Bell Inn, draping them over high-backed settles from Labour and Wait and fastening them with bridle leather belts. By the way ours is the one by the window.


She has covered the floors with handwoven rush matting, installed Bestlite wall lamps, and furnished the bedrooms with Ercol Windsor rocking chairs, and added a dash of red to the neutral color scheme with a Roberts Revival radio.

For a closer look at her work go to the wonderful Remodelista blog where you’ll find lots of other interesting articles and fantastic inspiration.

This interior was shortlisted for the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards in the category Best Restaurant Interior. This is the UK’s first and only restaurant and bar awards dedicated exclusively to project and product design with an award going to both designer and operator
