The Business Foodie


Give us a really good interiors tip…. Painting a wall is one of the best ways to create instant impact and feel that change is afoot. It’s also one of the easiest and quickest things to do in the list of interior alterations. As an extra tip, if you want to introduce white into a room get the right shade by trying testers… believe me when I say they aren’t all the same and yes it does matter! ll Why should I choose Goodchild over other interior designers? If you want more than scatter cushions. . . ll


Where would you take a client or colleague for a business lunch in Bristol? I think the Lido is such a well-kept secret in Clifton with its marvellous outdoor pool and alfresco dining


– sure to impress. ll


What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given in the biz, or you’ve given to someone else? Be yourself, the best version of yourself, and people will respect your integrity. Not every job has your name on it. ll


What’s the biggest mistake you’ve ever made – and your biggest success? The biggest mistake at the start was to assume people can visualise drawings – we always do sketches and illustrate our ideas in a variety of different ways to combat this. The biggest success was winning our first Design & Decoration Award for one of our interiors. I’ll always treasure that happy moment when we, the underdog, came out on top. ll


TOP INTERIOR TIPS


We asked two local business people where they’d take their team to celebrate a special occasion


Paul Goodchild and Gill Richardson offer award-winning architectural services and interior design. Here they offer top tips for refurbishing offices in Grade-II listed buildings: GOOD SPACE PLANNING


When your budget is tight, prioritise the client areas and meeting rooms with design features that can be seen and appreciated; however, don’t forego good space planning over fancy fixtures. OFFICE KITCHEN & WASHROOM


A kitchen and washroom makeover


in a period office is one design move where everyone will be grateful. Whether you are an MD or the office junior, these facilities will have a massive impact on morale. 2Fluorescent lighting is often


harsh and gives a dated corporate impression, but there are some great design alternatives. Good


light fittings are a cost effective way of creating a style statement and installing LEDs can save money on energy bills too. FURNITURE


Just because the building is Georgian doesn’t mean you can’t have contemporary furniture. Better to have something which reflects


your company identity rather than an ad hoc mish-mash of mixed styles. For more goodchildinteriors.net


JULIAN COOK, PROPERTY CONSULTANT, BURSTON COOK Hotel du Vin in Lewins Mead offers a classy yet cosy atmosphere, reliably good service and good food. There is


a consistency with the senior staff who always offer a good welcome whether or not they recognise us! Excellent for pre- prandial drinks and sharpener after dinner.


Rosemarino in York Place is also a little gem, established 18 months ago and run by Mico and Sam, who provide fresh Italian-inspired dishes and an excellent breakfast / brunch menu (rare in Clifton! ) in a sunny, authentic and welcoming atmosphere

ALISON BRACEY, INTERIOR DESIGNER, BRACEY INTERIORS It might not come as any surprise as it’s just opposite our showroom but we would


choose the Clifton Sausage. It’s not that we are lazy – it’s just simply because the food and ambience is perfect. The menu choice is ideal for all, it’s continually changing so there’s no chance of getting bored and their winning sausages are always on the menu - they also cater for vegetarians.


I don’t think there is anywhere better than The Clifton Sausage – it’s simply perfect! •cliftonsausage.co.uk
