Best Western – Monkbar Project with Style Library Contract


Expert suppliers of fabric, wallcoverings, trimmings and paint Style Library Contract encompasses the award-winning brands Zoffany, Harlequin, Sanderson, Morris & Co., Scion, Anthology and holds the exclusive distribution rights to FR-One products (in the UK).

Working on numerous contract projects around the world, Style Library Contract pride themselves on offering design-led products that are respected and admired by international designers, specifiers and purchasers. Most recently Style Library Contract worked closely with Hampton Design Studios on their Best Western Monkbar Project.

We sat down with Design Director of Hampton Designs Janine Powell who gave us a behind the scenes look into the project:

Janine’s passion for design truly began whilst studying for her degree in 3D design at Kingston University which lead her to begin a flourishing career in contract interiors. Amongst the multitude of successful projects Janine has worked on, her most recent was the Best Western in Monkbar. The brief for this project was to transform the hotel from a 3 to 4 star rating whilst of course keeping to budget.

When asked about her inspiration behind the theme of the project Janine told us:

“I really wanted to create a warm yet diverse space that would sit comfortably in York and would suit the clientele and clients visions moving forward.”

For this and previous projects Janine turned to Style Library Contract to source her fabrics and wallpapers. When asked why she continually chooses Style Library Contract Janine said:

“I wanted lots of different textures and layering for this boutique-feel interior. With Style Library Contract I could select fabrics across all three key brands – Sanderson, Zoffany and Harlequin to give the interior an eclectic mix of timeless finishes with a modern twist.”

Janine’s favourite items were the indigo Harlequin curtains used in the bar area.

With Janine’s wide-ranging experience in the contract market we asked her for any tips on trends that will be coming through over the next year, Janine said:

“I feel patterns are still going to be important for next year especially those based around nature; I also feel the African print and retro English garden colour palette will become key trends.”
