New project - Georgian Farmhouse

sitting room rug

I’ve just taken on a new project – a winter sitting room in a lovely Georgian farmhouse. The room is dominated by an enormous red brick inglenook fireplace. It is rather dark at present so the aim is to create a light but cosy and comfortable sitting room. Our starting point is this beautiful rug; we’ll pick out one or two of the colours and pull together an eclectic mix of textiles to create that timeless English country house look.

Barcelona penthouse hotel suite

This weekend we're staying in the luxurious Majestic hotel in Barcelona, in one of the penthouse suites, with an amazing view over this incredible city. This is not our normal habit, we tend to seek out boutique hotels with charm and character. However the hotel Murmuri had to transfer our booking to their sister hotel and we are being royally treated.

The rooms at the Majestic are elegantly furnished; light oak floors, marble skirtings, neutral colours, white and cream upholstery. Nothing terribly new there, but the lighting is clever; creating a cosy atmosphere with striking accents onto interesting features. For example, within the enormous marble bathroom there is a seperate shower room measuring around 4 square metres, again marble tiled, with rainshower head and diverter valves. There is a single recessed downlight washing light down one corner only, reinforcing my opinion that very little direct light is necessary in a shower. The same muted effects were present in the rest of the room, yet two wall lights mounted on the mirror generate all the light you need for practical purposes. Beautiful.

Attic Shower Room

We’re putting the finishing touches to a tiny en-suite shower room in a grade II* thatched cottage. The project has been quite a challenge as the room is tiny; as it’s built into the eaves the ceiling height is very restricted. However, we’ve managed to install a 1400 x 800mm shower tray with bespoke frameless glass doors, which feels really light and spacious.

We’ve also created lots of storage by building white high gloss units which make use of every nook and cranny. We’ve used Avonite, a highly practical material as it’s impervious to water. By polishing the units to a high gloss and using large matt white tiles elsewhere we’ve created a room which looks light, bright and uncluttered.
