I recently completed an interior design project for Jamieson’s Irish Pub. Lot Six took the award for best decor this year, but Jamieson’s received honourable mention for decor in the year-end Halifax restaurant awards by Bill Spur, Chronicle Herald’s restaurant reviewer.

The pub was built approximately 15 years ago by the owner. He was looking for an update that would be some new life and clientèle to the pub. The pub had a country feel to it with lots of antiques, dried flowers, and memorabilia…in fact a bit too much. I shared my vision for the new design being a more hip industrial look to bring in the younger crowd. We needed to be cognizant of the regulars that frequented the pub – it was important to keep some of the old charm.
The bar area was updated with an amazing old style brick that looks so old and original and added a a new black wood bar, new lighting and industrial stools.
We created some banquette seating areas with backless low barstools which are a mainstay in Ireland and Scotland. I love the colour of these burnt orange bicycle spoke stools we sourced. The new brick wall is amazing! We also found a hardwood flooring choice that felt old and original! A window bar was installed for the younger crowd that wants to pull up a seat and work on a laptop.
Here’s a close up of the brick wall…gorgeous! …and those awesome bicycle spool stools!
