The Bootham Tavern, York
Published on , in Projects.
Dating back to at least 1745, The Bootham Tavern in York has recently undergone a £500,000 makeover. During the course of 10 weeks both the exterior and interior underwent a complete refurbishment.
This is a collaboration between national pub operator Punch and local entrepreneur Nicola Hunter. Designers Nanu Soda were commissioned to revamp the interior.
The new owners wanted to retain original features and create a contemporary yet traditional pub atmosphere. Dark wood parquet flooring has been retained, along with exposed fireplaces and brick.
Designers Nanu Soda chose another design from the same collection - this time a marbled effect wallcovering picking up on the warm browns, coppers and greys used in the overall interior scheme.
Charred-style wood has been used on the front of bars, and our West End wallcovering - another distressed wood effect - has been chosen for feature areas on walls.
Upstairs, the Bootham Tavern has 6 letting rooms - and these have also been redesigned. Tektura worked with the designers in sourcing photography of the local area and we printed as wallcovering. Various images were considered (shown on the right), and we adjusted the colours to fit with each bedroom scheme.
