Style at the Sipping Room

Now the weather is starting to turn, autumn’s really on its way isn’t it? I’m sharing some interiors inspiration from The Sipping Room, a bar in London’s Docklands. It’s full of fur, either cushions or throws, and is just the snuggly kind of decor that feels right for now, and for before we put the heating on. You haven’t broken yet, have you?

The bar was the venue, or rather the base, for the launch of Heston’s Everdure range in the UK. The launch took place outside, as it’s hard to launch a barbecue range indoors isn’t it? The day was sunny, but that was deceiving and I’m pretty sure at one point we were quite tempted to head inside. But the food, and oh the food, that was outside, and who was going to turn down food cooked by Heston’s team? Exactly.

I’ve already shared the loos from there, like you do. Or rather, like I do. And they did quite possibly have the prettiest geometry… The bar’s interiors though was quite different and much darker, full of wood, texture and pops of colour. And it worked.

cosy furs and cushions for extra comfiness

There were spaces for dining and socialising, and in each space there was lighting and comforting throws, or cushions.

The bar, as you’d expect had its own design treatment with clever lighting and inviting high stools, which you couldn’t help but just perch on while your drinks arrived. I’m sure the space has a buzzy and vibey feel on usual days, but being there for a private event meant I got to take photos I wouldn’t usually get to take, and it was great.

There was one similarity with the loos, and that’s the quotes. This one, so true, hey?
