We are delighted that our Charlotte Street Hotel in Bloomsbury is back up and running. Up on the second floor, you will discover our newly refurbished bedroom, Room 202. This room has two large windows which look over the charming cafes and historic buildings on Charlotte Street.
The bedroom is flooded with natural sunlight and the pink and green tones throughout create a fresh and bold scheme. Adorning the walls is a subtle ticking stripe in pink and white by Andrew Martin. On first glance the walls look like a plain soft pink, but up close the stripe is incredibly crisp and strong.
The curvaceous headboard has been upholstered in Schumacher’s ‘Persephone’ fabric. This distinctive brocatelle weave features a colourful, scrolling pomegranate pattern in wonderfully high relief. It has an extraordinary dimension and a rich antiqued effect. To carry on the semi distressed look, we added bronze antique studding around the outside which frames the headboard beautifully.
On the depth of the headboard is a bright blue two tone weave by Pierre Frey. We decided to add this detail to draw out the electric blue outline of the pomegranate pattern.
The bed cushions have been made up in Clarence House’s ‘Small Tibet’ fabric, piped in a raspberry toned wool by Clementine Oliver, which draws out the pink hues within the headboard fabric.
The curtains are a lovely soft off white linen by Pierre Frey. Down the leading edge is the same wool we used to pipe the bed cushions with a fun green braid by Kate Spade on top, so that you can see accents of the pink through the braid. It’s all in the detail!
Opposite the bed, the fabric by Clarence House has been repeated on the large statement armchairs, creating a sense of symmetry. The chairs sit in front of a stone fireplace where a Bloomsbury style painting hangs above, in true Charlotte Street fashion.
The desk has been strategically placed opposite the window wall where a large gilded mirror hangs and reflects the light throughout the room. Two pink pleated lampshades sit either side of the desk, bringing an extra pop of colour to the space.
The desk chair has been upholstered in my ‘Lost and Found’ fabric which I designed for Christopher Farr Cloth. Within the square stripe is a subtle pink stitch, which is a lovely little detail. We have piped the handle with the same Clementine Oliver wool used on the bed cushions, creating a continuous flow. On the seat of the chair is a hard wearing green weave by Pierre Frey, which has also been used on the end of bed stool.
As soon as you enter the room your eyes meet the green tree tops on leafy Charlotte Street, it’s a truly wonderful sight. This space is a pink and green haven – we cannot wait for you to come and stay. We hope you love this room as much as we do!
