Room 502 at Knightsbridge Hotel
In this light filled suite at the Knightsbridge Hotel, we wanted to create a scheme which captures the breezy feeling of the pretty tree-lined Beaufort Gardens below.
On the walls we used a wonderful fabric called Vasari by Penny Morrison. It is illustrated with an intricate pattern of vases and Cypress trees in dusty blues and muted oranges. The soft colours and beautiful detail on the fabric is the focal point of the scheme, harmonising with blue and orange tones on the upholstery.
The headboard wall is covered in a simple duck egg blue linen by Osborne & Little, to counter the decorative prints. This more subdued fabric works well as a backdrop to the striking orange headboard, covered in my Tea Leaf linen for Christopher Farr Cloth.
We added eye-catching pops of orange throughout the scheme, from the leather piping trim on the tub chairs to the sofa scatter cushions and our signature mannequin. The dusky pale blues are drawn out on the delicate, small-scale fabric of the curtains, trimmed in bronze beading. These small details can make such a difference to a room.
In this airy bedroom, it is the combination of delicate patterns which make it such a serene and tranquil space in which to spend time.
