Let’s look behind closed doors and take a peek of Suite 25 at Ham Yard Hotel. This is a space that is flooded by natural daylight and even on the cloudiest of days, vibrant turquoise walls create a sense of liveliness.
As you arrive into the suite and its drawing room, you’ll notice an unusually shaped pine and olive wood finished console table. This unique table is made from local Tunisian materials and a lamp with a straw shade is ingeniously incorporated into the design. We love how it brings a tropical touch to the scheme. It is complemented by a wooden hand-carved mirror above and round mirrors which are decorated with seashells. Mirrors are a great way to increase natural light and maximise a sense of space. Explore examples in our blog post Mirror Mirror On The Wall.
For the curtains and sofa cushions we have used ‘Kashmir Paisley’ fabric in the Sky/Red colourway by Peter Dunham Textiles. This printed paisley pattern was inspired by a block print that Peter discovered as a teenager when backpacking in India. He held on to it for years and eventually used it as inspiration for one of his first designs in the collection. This fabric draws on the scheme’s dreamy blue hues. The sofas have been upholstered in a textural fabric which has artisanal, hand-crafted qualities. This handwoven cloth is made from recycled cotton threads and we love its geometric patterns. A fitted floor to ceiling bookcase runs along the length of the room. Accentuated in blue, it visually connects the dining and seating areas. Find our guide to styling bookcases here.
The clean limestone fireplace is a focal point and flanks a symmetrical arrangement of sofas, chairs and a coffee table. The layout induces a sense of calm and order. Find more ideas for drawing room layouts here.
The mood changes to one that is sensual and dreamy when you move into the bedroom. Here we have used Andrew Martin’s Savannah Paradise fabric in the ‘Paradise’ colourway for the walls. A statement headboard has been upholstered in the same geometric fabric as the drawing room’s sofas, whilst a bed valance and our Denim Handle Chair bring pops of blue. You’ll also find an armchair adorned with Nina Campbell’s ‘Ashdown Stripe’ fabric. Together, these textiles create a connection between bedroom and living space.
