Heart of Hall in Newport has transformed a drab employment agency into a stylish cooking school, cafe and foodstore for westside locals. I love the decor and colour scheme, with cobalt blue walls highlighting the white-and-wood Scandi chic aesthetic. The gold bar on the coffee bench is a glamorous finishing touch. Heart of Hall services […]
