As summer temperatures soar, we love sitting in the shade of trees with a cold drink in hand. We are particularly fond of our five oak trees in Ham Yard Hotel’s courtyard. The first items to be considered for the site, the oak trees were craned in and the hotel was built around them. We honour our appreciation of all things oak throughout our designs. Explore some examples with this ‘Ode to Oak’…
The Oak Leaf Suite at Ham Yard Hotel
Nested above the courtyard’s oak trees is the Oak Leaf Suite. The shining star of the room is a statement headboard. Hand embroidered, it has highly stylized oak leaves made using natural dyed yarns and reused plastic bags. The bed cushions and mannequin also don the exquisite motif. Explore this space further with our ‘Sleeping Around’ blog post here.
The ceiling is just as important as any other surface in the room, but often gets left behind in the design process. It’s the reason why the ceiling often gets referred to as the 5th wall. Adding additional texture and cosiness, the oak beams of this sitting room create a prominent feature. Exposed beams create interest and can make ceilings as beautiful as the walls!
You’ll find oak flooring throughout our hotel spaces. Detailed in texture yet extremely durable, oak floors provide a perfect foundation to our schemes.
Heart of Oak Fabric
Our Heart of Oak fabric is new from our Design Studio. Available in a variety of colourways, the simple motif sings. The textured twill cloth is soft and the texture helps to give the colours added depth. Explore our design further in this blog post here.
As fans of wooden furniture, we often incorporate oak pieces within our bedrooms and restaurants. This stained oak dining table begs for a dinner party and stands the test of time!
