The Oak Leaf Suite


The new Oak Leaf Suite at Ham Yard Hotel is a colourful utopia with a vast open plan sitting and dining space. We named this suite after the 30 foot oak trees planted in the hotel’s courtyard. Looking through the crittal windows you feel like a bird nestled amongst the leaves.

In the drawing room, our new ‘Willow’ sofa is covered in my ‘Woven Ribbon’ fabric design for Christopher Farr Cloth. We added a yellow Samuel & Sons leather pipe to give it a tailored feel.

The little details such as Margit Wittig’s standing lamp and table top bird lights with Fermoie lampshades make the room feel cosy yet glamorous.

The woodwork in the drawing room is painted in Edward Bulmer’s natural paints, combining pea green and red ochre. These colours are continued on Pierre Frey’s ‘Miwok’ embroidered curtains.

In the dining area, the oak table is surrounded by bespoke Raoul ‘Sari’ fabric handle chairs. On the walls, we hung large, vibrant artworks by one of our favourite artists, Joe Tilson. Overhead a ‘Kevin Riley’ candle chandelier throws the dining room under a soft glow.

The walls of the master bedroom are lined with an embroidered fabric called ‘Isatis’ by Casamance. The focal point of the scheme is the heavily embroidered statement headboard.

We commissioned Helena Allan, an artist based in Uganda, to hand embroider the headboard, bed cushions and mannequin. She uses dyed natural yarns and reused plastic bags to create these exquisite leaves. To the right of the bed, we framed a large sari textile in a Perspex box.

Beside the little writing desk is a handle chair covered in a herringbone ‘Sequana’ fabric with a wonderful ‘Reserved Seat Coupon’ braid by African Sketchbook.

In the hallway, a glamorous pair of chairs sit beside the floor to ceiling windows. They are covered in a heavy and luxurious fabric called ‘Tibet’ by Clarence House, finished off with tassels by African Sketchbook. The embroidered curtains by Baker Lifestyle bring the colours of this exquisite room together.

The second bedroom is fresh and light. The entrance feature wall is covered in Etamine’s ‘Voyage a Tunis’ wallpaper, we love the camels and sense of adventure.

Adorning the bedroom walls is Fermoie’s ‘Samarkand’, a smart plain linen. The simple fabric is also used on the curtains, which jingle with a Nina Campbell beaded braid on the leading edge.

The headboard is covered in a striking fabric by Jane Churchill with a bright orange depth to make it pop. Hanging either side are our magic shaman hats that light up the room and give the whole design a contemporary feel.
