Bourne & Hollingsworth Bar refurb

  • Ilona McKie
Working closely with the Director to coordinate the refurbishment the company’s first venue in central Soho. Using collaborative Pinterest boards for each area of the bar, this was a useful tool for sourcing the interiors and creating a vision for the space. Using only a reference picture for the type of marble to be used for the bar top, with extensive research I managed to source the designer of the manmade terrazzo marble, a main talking point of the bar. Other items sourced were black glass table tops, a mix of different patterned fabrics from designers such as Mulberry, bespoke printed wallpaper and new furniture.
Upon reopening, the bar was greeted with a warm reception from both old and new customers and continues to be a place of note in the competitive London nightlife scene.
