Little Kitchen Bean & Bar

Rustic café renovation in Winchester

Having worked ten years in hospitality, I understand the challenges of restaurant operation and how smart interior design can make a huge difference in overcoming them.


This once country cottage café needed a facelift to bring it into the modern day but we honoured its already beautiful features by stripping back the lack lustre walls to expose the original brick work and constructing dark paneling to contrast.


The rustic bar was made out of 100 year old floorboards and the shelves and lighting fixtures were created using hand-soldered scaffold pipe for an industrial edge. The old front of house bar was repurposed to make bespoke banquet seating with storage, turning the high traffic hallway area from an avoid zone for couples to an enviable space for groups.


I've worked with Leisha over the last few years - both personally and professionally and she is an amazingly creative individual. She has a unique eye for space and making it work perfectly as well as being confident with colour - always with brilliant results. She is also very patient, flexible and happy to revise and revisit designs and ideas as the remit changes. She takes time to understand the varying briefs she is given and works tirelessly to achieve the perfect result - she's also completely lovely, friendly and approachable!
