Location: CBD Hotel, 75 York St, Sydney
This was a refresh of an existing space to welcome chef & restaurateur, Jeremy Strode of Bistrode.
On the walls we needed a change of paint colour and chose a cleaner, brighter white. Jeremy supplied black & white photographs of chefs around the world by Earl Carter that we mixed in with some old English cutlery illustrations .We employed the artist that Jeremy had used on Bistrode menus to create an over-scaled mural on the ground floor and exterior barriers. Shaded wall sconces were added for additional lighting and a bistro feel.
The front of the bar was paneled with black penny tiles, new vases were added for large flora as well as the addition of some loose, upholstered banquette style seating.
The old tablecloths were removed, the French wood polished to a darker tone, new linen napkins sourced & this light, beautiful space was given a new lease on life.
