Through their diverse, culturally rich backgrounds which include living in South America and Europe, Villalobos Desio bring a unique approach to design which allows them to marry a broad range of cultural influences and styles in a way that is balanced and tells the story of each individual client. They have completed projects for clients in New York and across the United States as well as in Mexico, South America, and London.

Floor-to-ceiling wet bars (or as in this case, serving bars ) give the always-been-there look. This look seems more architectural; it fits right in with the overall lines of the interiors. While many new-construction spaces offer finishes like cherry, mahogany and oak, I recommend always going dark with ebony or dark walnut unless you’re willing to go painted.

While Clinkston completed the architectural plans, the team collaborated on everything, down to the small details. “Barbara came up with the idea to use fir on the raised bar,” he says. “We kept tweaking the design together.” The raised counter stands up to the scale of the other large elements in the kitchen; the wood is 2⅜ inches thick. It was sealed with a waterborne clear finish called SDA urethane that stands up to kitchen wear and tear.

Hello, everyone! It s so great to have you back! I hope you had a great long weekend and could relax with your family and friends.

We had a wonderful weekend, celebrating our 10th anniversary. It was perfect, not only for what we did, but because I was with my hubby and my kids.

Have a blessed week!

How to Design Restaurants Bars that Enhance the Customer Experience

Here at Freshome, we particularly love looking deeper into the design of residential architecture and interiors but just occasionally we also get curious about other areas of design, such as hospitality design. What makes a great restaurant or bar? How do you ensure that the customers will have a great experience and want to return and how can the design of the space help to achieve certain business goals? These were the questions that we wanted answers to so we decided to ask some experts.

Collect this idea

Blacksheep was set up in 2002 by Tim Mutton and Jo Sampson because of their shared passion for design. The award-winning agency excels in creating spaces that really perform, from hotels, bars and restaurants, to retail environments, work places and residential spaces. We caught up with Creative Director Jo to find out more about Blacksheep s work in restaurant and bar design and what exactly it takes to design a space that really works.

Can you give us a brief introduction to Blacksheep?

Co-founded in 2002 by Managing Director, Tim Mutton and myself, Blacksheep is a leading design agency specialising in the creation of exceptional branded food and beverage experiences, designing award-winning restaurants, bars, hotels and spaces. Based in London, the studio boasts specialist teams who understand the importance of an all-encompassing, holistic hospitality design service including local market analysis, brand positioning, innovative concept creation/implementation and integrated graphics and branding.

Blacksheep has established a global reputation for creating outstanding hospitality environments. As well as redefining London’s nightlife scene over the past decade with award-winning projects The Cuckoo Club and Whisky Mist, Blacksheep’s international hotel clients include Fairmont Hotel Group, Hilton Hotels Resorts, Accor Hotels and Marriot Hotels Resorts.

Blacksheep has created worldwide retail concepts for the Waterford, Wedgwood and the Royal Doulton Group and implements international shopping environments for luxury goods company, Hermès. The agency enjoys a continuing partnership with renowned British chef Jamie Oliver, successfully rolling out the design of his Jamie’s Italian chain and, most recently, his Union Jacks restaurant concept.

How did you get involved in hospitality design?

I graduated with a first class honours degree in design, which propelled me to fast track my career in the industry. I am a specialist in the creation of luxury interiors for hotels and private homes, as well as in the design of cutting-edge retail spaces and I have a keen stylist’s eye for the very best in furniture and fittings. I cut my teeth working with renowned agencies Studio De Lucchi. Terence Conran and United Designers who sought out and found a designer who could match and embody their own hard-won reputations for luxury and excellence.

Born in the UK, Tim was inspired to start his career while working in bars in his early twenties. Intrigued by watching people interact and use the space in hospitality environments, Tim went on to study Art and Design achieving a BA Hons in Interior Design. From here, he established himself working in leading design practices including the renowned Terence Conran and United Designers.

You claim that Blacksheep flies the flag for design that doesn’t play by the rulebooks. What does this mean?

We don’t follow trends, we define them. Research for concepts isn’t based on what is out there now or what’s current; as this will be dated by the time our work comes to fruition. We look at trends and try and stay one-step ahead so our work has longevity.

Collect this idea

To what extent can the design of the restaurant or bar measurably contribute to the effectiveness of the space as a business?

100%! The location of all the elements from circulation spaces, to seating areas to the bar all contributes to the operations of a space. If people can’t get a drink or the food is stone cold then the space fails, and that affects the business.

Collect this idea

What strategies does Blacksheep have in place to enable the design of venues that contribute to happier guests and higher spending?

It is all down to good planning of the place and making it work, something that customers would not be aware of. Then it is about atmosphere, from lighting to music. People have to feel relaxed, but before we start on a project we research extensively into the offer and the location, making sure that what we are designing is relevant to the local or targeted demographic.

Collect this idea

Consumers who visit restaurants and bars obviously do so in order to fulfil certain psychological needs. What tools and strategies do hospitality designers have at their disposal to ensure that these needs are successfully met?

I don’t think that it’s so much about psychological needs but social ones. The customer chooses which venue is better suited for their particular mood or requirements. Are they going somewhere to hopefully meet someone or are they going for an intimate dinner? This decides the choice of venue.

Collect this idea

What would you say are the main design elements that affect the length of time that customers spend in a restaurant or bar?

Food, comfort and service! Service is particularly important – feeling welcome and wanted. Also the atmosphere has to be conductive to helping you relax and enjoy the occasion.

Collect this idea

What are the main challenges that hospitality designers are faced with today?

Main challenges are clients finding good sites at the right rents. This has a major impact for the budgets of projects and the effects on the bottom line for the owner. As a consequence price points for food and drink can be affected, which will have a further impact on the demographic for the restaurant.

Collect this idea

What are the most common mistakes that are made in the design of restaurants and bars?

Fundamental planning – ie kitchens, circulations etc and being able to service a restaurant properly and atmosphere. It is key to get the right ambience, not too cold or not too loud and from a food perspective not too many dishes. Not having a defined offer – less is definitely more when it comes to mains.

Collect this idea

What is the most important thing to remember when designing a bar or restaurant?

The customer! How we are going to attract them, how are we going to give them an amazing experience and what’s going to make them come back?

Collect this idea

We would like to thank Jo for giving up her time to answer our questions and for giving us an insight into the work of Blacksheep. We would love to hear about your experiences of great restaurant or bar design though. Tell us what it is about your favourite restaurant or bar that keeps you coming back and how can the design make for a better dining experience?

… i nie chodzi mi o dumę czy zadufanie, a raczej o to, że z radością spoglądam na moje sufity. Tak, zdecydowałam się potraktować te powierzchnie ponad naszymi głowami z równą pieczołowitością co resztę mieszkania i wykorzystać tą przestrzeń jako kolejny dekoracyjny element.

W dniach 14-16/10/2016 odbędzie się czwarty MEETBLOGIN, ogólnopolski zjazd blogerów wnętrzarskich w ramach 10-tej, jubileuszowej edycji Lodz Design Festival. Wydarzenie to powstało z pasji do designu, stylizacji i dekoracji wnętrz, ale także z chęci rozwijania siebie jako autorki bloga.

Na #Meetblogin2016, jak co roku, spodziewamy się ogromnego zainteresowania ze strony blogerów ale i partnerów. W wydarzeniu weźmie udział ponad 40 najbardziej zaangażowanych, opiniotwórczych, wyselekcjonowanych autorów blogów z całej Polski. Dodatkowo większość spotkań będzie otwartych dla publiczności festiwalowej.

Ostatnie dni lata. Słońce coraz krócej na niebie i wieczory już nie takie ciepłe. Czas powrotów z wakacji. Nostalgia i smutek? Jak zachować letnie wspomnienia? Czy w ciągu całego roku można czuć się jak na wakacjach? Z pewnością każdy z nas ma na to swój sposób. Jedni wspominają egzotyczne podróże oglądając przywiezione pamiątki inni wertują albumy ze zdjęciami. Na pewno warto zmienić coś w swoim najbliższym otoczeniu, aby każdego dnia, wykonując codzienne czynności, a nawet nudne obowiązki, przywodzić na myśl miejsca z letnich wycieczek.

Das ist ein Loft so ganz nach unserem Geschmack. Minimalistisch eingerichtet, ein toller Raum mit großen Balken und schönen Ziegelsteinwänden. Und dazu noch jede Menge schöne Details, die die Kreativität der Designer & Architekten zeigen. Der Holzboden des Lofts wurde nach der Nutzung der Räumlichkeiten durch eine Firma komplett restauriert. Ebenso mußte die schöne Deckenkonstruktion restauriert.

Wie schön Recycling Möbel in einer Wohnung zusammen wirken können und wie sie ein stimmungsvolles Ambiente ergeben, zeigt dieses Beispiel einer.

Manche Ideen sind so naheliegend, nur ärgerlich, dass man nicht von alleine darauf kommt. Für unter 5 Euro lässt sich mit Beton und einfachen.

Wir sammeln jede Menge Einrichtungsideen und werden nie müde, besonders ungewöhnliche Wohnideen aufzustöbern und in unseren Blog aufzunehmen. Und da uns nicht nur ein Stil gefällt, legen wir besonders viel Wert darauf für moderne Wohnstile möglichst viele Ideen und Inspirationen zu finden. Ob zeitlose Designklassiker oder ausgefallene Möbel von Nachwuchsdesignern, wir halten nichts von einheitlichem Interior Design. Wohnen und Einrichten sollte jeder nach seinem Geschmack.

Eine unserer Lieblingsrubriken ist die Rubrik mit Möbeln aus Recycling-Materialien. Letztlich ist Öko nicht nur nachhaltig, sondern kann auch sehr schick und stylisch sein. Und persönlich finden wir Möbelstücke, die man mit gutem Gewissen kaufen kann, auch noch ein bißchen schöner wie das teure Designerstück.

Auch darauf haben wir bei der Recherche immer ein Auge. Wer kann schon immer ein Wohnzimmer sein eigen nennen, das 30qm oder mehr hat. Oft müssen kreative Lösungen her, einen Raum optimal auszunutzen und trotzdem gut aussehen zu lassen.

Wenn wir Zeit haben, reisen wir gerne. Von schönen Orten nehmen wir immer gerne Fotos auf und wollen diese Rubrik in Zukunft gerne weiter ausbauen.

A Sixties Surfer-Chic Beach House

A Geometric Tabletop

“The whole house is basically orange, yellow, turquoise, and white, with a tiny bit of pink here and there. The colors were inspired by that wild geometric pattern on the ’60s-style dining room tabletop,” says Berman.
