The Dragonfly, Newport
The interior of the Dragonfly in Newport reinterprets traditional pub decor, creating a welcoming environment uplifted by modern design principles and charmingly intricate details.
JMDA’s design accentuates the existing rustic elements of the Dragonfly: plenty of dark wood throughout the lounge areas compliments the pub’s authentic ceiling beams and natural flagstones, with warm lighting to ensure that these materials create a cosy, intimate mood. Earthy tones are dominant, accented by scatter cushion splashes of yellow, green, and ivory. Patterned fabric creates a subtly refined period aesthetic, without the interior feeling dated. Finally, plenty of mirrors helps as ever to make the relatively small space feel larger.
