The White Hart, Wharfedale
Shabby-chic is brought alive in the White Hart, set in the heart of rural Pool-in-Wharfedale. Mixing rustic British pub comfort with a contemporary stylistic twist, JMDA was able to design another inspired variation of the Premium Country Pubs brand, unique to the White Hart.
Taking up the task of redesigning the White Hart’s interior, JMDA focused on bringing a modern edge to the rural pub, preserving its most unique qualities while upholding the overarching style of the Premium Country Pubs brand. Dark and natural wood are present as an essential part of the rustic pub atmosphere, but are accented by slick new furnishings, subtly elegant light fixtures, and of course, a wood-topped bar that forms the centrepiece of the space. The traditional deep shades of red and navy that decorate the walls are reciprocated vibrantly in the upholstery, which ranges from luxurious teal velvet in the bar area to the rich worn-look fabrics recognisable from JMDA’s other Premium Country Pubs projects. Brassy feature walls and plenty of warm lighting keep the space feeling cosy and refined, further solidified by backlit wine cabinets that blend functionality and spectacle.
