We call Covent Garden Hotel the ‘Grande Dame’ of Firmdale Hotels. Once an old French hospital, the hotel has a more traditional aesthetic with heritage ‘treasures’ hidden within our rooms.
In Room 110, we wanted to capture the glamour of the golden days without creating a pastiche of the past.
The traditional four poster bed, writing desk, ornate artworks and the enormous antique mirror are mixed with fresh and contemporary fabrics.
This room is a serene escape from the lively streets of London below.
The soothing cool blue linen on the walls by Osborne & Little exists in a perfect shade in this airy room. It has large dual aspect windows, which means the room is filled with the changing light throughout the day.
On the four-poster bed, the blue interiors are in a soft patterned linen by Borderline, reminiscent of blue skies.
The outer tester and curtains are lined in a smart Vaughan linen with silk embroidered medallions in all shades of blue. The lighter linen creates a beautiful contrast with the dark mahogany bed frame.
Throughout the room, we have introduced pops of bright pink to lift the scheme. The antique cane armchair is covered in a powerful pink and red Schumacher Red Hook fabric, a modern twist on a more traditional needlepoint style.
