Windermere Hydro, Bespoke Upholstery

This elegant Victorian Lake District hotel, with its breath-taking views of Lake Windermere is now a fine hotel and conference centre having undergone a large refurbishment in 2017.

The brief

Heather Bennani, of Not a Box design was commissioned to design a Boutique hotel interior perfect for leisure guests, conferences and wedding functions. Heather’s concept of botanical beauty was chosen to reinvigorate the public spaces and guest bedrooms. Colours for the interior were intended to follow a jewel-like theme, with bespoke designs that the hotel could own.

The outcome

The Botanical theme was realised in exotic   bespoke prints across the furniture, drapery and wallcoverings. Skopos worked with Heather on a Skopos archive print, amending the design to add in elegant, exquisite detail, such as butterflies and insects. The Tropicana print was brought to life on a beautiful linen-look drape and an upholstery quality and utilised in key areas of the hotel. In the bedrooms Skopos used a classical cherub design from Muraspec on the headboards, which was echoed on walls within the ballroom. Not a Box also used key products from Skopos’ current collection to provide bold injections of colour in the hotel.

Skopos provided full service, including bespoke design, make-up and installation.
