Interior design firm Blacksheep recently completed their face lift of the Mercure Eastgate Hotel in Oxford. From what I can tell from the images, the results are what you would expect from Blacksheep: elegant and luxurious. But what I really like about their work is that they always manage to find quirky, unorthodox wallpaper that adds a certain edge to their refined style.
