Many of the building's original features remain, including Victorian glazed tiles, war memorials and remembrance plaques. Shed commissioned illustrators ilovedust (ilovedust.com) to make artwork for a new stained-glass ceiling in The Great Hall that would recall the mission's past. A suspended grid was installed to take 200 illuminated translucent printed tiles.
Try Peels of London (e-peels.co.uk) for glass transfers for windows. Mix its colour-block prints, such as Four Seasons, with more intricate patterns (Mackintosh works well). Prices start at about £17.99 for half a sheet. Alternatively, Zazzle.co.uk stocks stained-glass stickers for £4.20.
Neon signs are statement pieces in each of the MEAT restaurants. For the Hoxton branch, the word "mission" is highlighted with a bold red neon sign by Chris Bracey above the entrance, contrasting with the original Hoxton Market Mission stone carving next to it. Bracey turns neons, bulbs and architectural scraps rescued from fairgrounds and film sets, into brilliant lightworks. Visit his studio (godsownjunkyard.co.uk) for all sorts of gems.
Rockett St George (rockettstgeroge.co.uk) has a Lucky neon light for £295, while Not on the High Street sells a neon letter kit. The letters, in Typewriter font, are available individually (£45 each; notonthe highstreet.com). A kit includes all you need to click separate letters together and attach them to a wall.
Bold wall decoration
MEATmission's intimate Sitting Room walls are covered in a haphazard red and black print. Erica Wakerly's geometric wallpaper in metallic silver and orange (£69; wallpaperdirect.com) would suit the home as it is bold without being overbearing.
Hang black-and-white graphics on top. MEATMISSION's designs are printed by Genix (genix.co.uk) but alternate between different posters for an affordable and easy way of freshening a room. For example, mix Passion 3 (£14.40; redbubble.com) with The Chimp Stereo (£6.99; allposters.co.uk).
Bench seats in reclaimed timbers and tempered steel bar stools by Treeslounge Bespoke Interiors (treeslounge.co.uk) have a suitably industrial feel. They contrast with the sumptuous high-level leather booths and the red-velvet banquette, made by Oval (ovalworkshop.co.uk), in The Sitting Room. Mahogany tables are given an edgier look with brass details. Other tables are topped with glass to reflect the ceiling.
For a budget version of this robust look choose Ikea's Granas table and four chairs in black (£400; ikea.com). Alternatively, pubfurniture.net, which specialises in oak refectory tables and oak and bentwood chairs, has lots of second-hand bargains.
Sweetpea and Willow's Cerf chair, from the Wild Bunch range (£365; sweetpeaandwillow.com) has MEATmsiion written all over it.
Glass globe shades float from the ceilings in The Private Room and light fittings rise from behind the dining counter. The shades cost about £18 from John Moncrieff (johnmoncrieff.co.uk).
The bespoke bar by Cummins and Pope (cummins-pope.co.uk) in The Great Hall is outlined in blue EL wire, sourced from EL Wire Craft (strips from 85p; elwirecraft.co.uk), making it appear skeletal under low light.
Hanging above is a "Chandebeer", with empty beer bottles dangling from a light fixture. Bar Lite (barlite.com) makes pendants and chandeliers from recycled booze bottles from £48.71. Do it yourself with the Beer Bottle Chandelier — Use Your Own Bottles kit (£81.23) from eBay.com. The fixture holds 20 bottles, which can be changed easily for different colour or party themes.
Decor that dazzles
Finish your makeover with kitsch accessories. A grass pig money bank from Urban Outfitters (£18; urbanoutfitters.co.uk), a hamburger telephone (£17.99; iwantoneofthose.com), a victory salute coat hook (£105; bouf.com), and a large mosaic mirror (£35; goomoo.co.uk) woud make an eclectic combination.
