ATADesigns designs mural for The Sally


The Sally is a pub, hotel and restaurant in Irthington and is owned by Shaun Gardner and Jimmy Little.  I met the dynamic duo last year, whilst exhibiting at the Independent Hotel Show.  They spoke to me about their project, and they asked if I could design a mural for the bar area of their newly refurbished pub.  In fact, at the time, they were in the middle of refurbishing, and were due to open very soon.

The Idea

The idea for the mural was to have their logo incorporated on to brick wall design with a vintage finish.  So there are lots of textures and scratches in the design to help achieve this look.  I’m pleased to say, that the mural is installed, and we love it, but most importantly, our clients love it too

The Sally had a major revamp just before Christmas, and I must say that I’m impressed with the new decor.  It’s modern, contemporary and stylish.  They also have a nice log fire for those cold winter nights.

The Sally is situated in Irthington village, just north-west of Carlisle, and close to the market town of Brampton.  This historic pub is at the heart of the north Cumbria community.

If you are in the area, this is a perfect opportunity, to chill, and have lunch at the pub, or maybe even stay a night or two.  That’s certainly what I intend to do and I can’t wait.

Thank you Shaun and Jimmy for kindly sending through your pictures.  It was lovely working with you.  I hope that everything is working out well for you and your adventures.
