The property has been dressed by Open Door Interiors. Managing Director, Tracy Baker comments: “Our aim was to create a unique and memorable bachelor pad-style apartment space. Our colour inspiration was taken from the beautiful original stained-glass windows found around the Manor itself and incorporated this into the design wherever possible. To achieve this, we used a striking palette of colours and fabrics, paired with vibrant accessories.
We collaborated with Whitewall Galleries, providing beautiful pieces of artwork commissioned by local artists to enhance the space even further. The feature furniture pieces by Tom Dixon were a fantastic addition, and really stand out against the crisp white walls.
“As the Turret staircase was a focal point of the apartment, we wanted to create something fun and impactful for this particular area. The obvious choice for a bachelor pad-style property was a bespoke drinks bar. We were lucky enough to be sponsored by local distillery’s, Warwickshire Gin and Ikoyi Chapmans for this.”
