The Golden Ball
Steve enlisted the help of award winning Interior Designer, Jaqueline Hopkins, to help realise his dream in the design of this charming grade 2 listed building - the Golden Ball - which nestles on the edge of the Chiltern Hills. Working closely together, Jaqueline has created a scheme that retains all the inherent charm of the building but adds a new dimension, which is intended to provide the perfect back drop for Steve's delicious food.
The ambience is comfortable and welcoming yet vibrant and compelling. Old beams have been painstakingly rubbed down and retrieved from layers of centuries old paint; mellow brick fireplaces have been reinstated and original floors have been refurbished, where they could be saved. Against the back-drop, Jaqueline has worked with the juxtaposition of natural, earthy textures and smooth more contemporary finishes inspired from the magic emanating from the name - The Golden Ball.
