‘Oak & Acorns’ in a Country Pub

I have recently printed ‘Oak & Acorns’ wallpaper to The Alma Inn in the picturesque village of Linton, Herefordshire.  The hand designed and hand printed wallpaper fits perfectly into the setting of this country Inn.  The bespoke colour was hand chosen by Gemma and has been mixed to colour-match with their Interior Design plans.

Rather than opt for a ‘feature wall’ they have taken the plunge and wallpapered the whole room and the effect is stunning.  It definitely has impact whilst creating exactly the right ambience for a Country Inn.

Gemma and Dan Evans, the new proprietors, are refreshing the interiors to suit their tastes and to sensitively redecorate and give a fresh feel.  The smaller bar, also used as a snug Dining Room and on occasion for local meetings of the Bridge Club, is now featuring ‘Oak & Acorn’ wallpaper and it has created a distinctive atmosphere in this cosy room with its stripped Oak bar, fireside chairs and inviting log burner.

I will do another feature, with more photographs, at ‘The Alma’ when the room has been fully furnished, then I’ll return with my wonderful photographer and stylist Caroline Potter.
