The scope of the project included all lounges at Devonshire Arms Bolton Abbey. Although each lounge enjoys its own identity, they are physically linked as far as guest footfall is concerned.
Apart from the Cocktail Lounge, where we also hung new curtains, our remit was to create a fresh look with new furniture and fabrics.
The Cocktail Lounge and Piano Lounge are at the front of the building and enjoy natural light and a prominent position. Full length windows in the Cocktail Lounge help to promote a sense of formality and bold deep reds and purples of the new upholstery sit comfortably with family oil paintings on the walls.
The Piano Lounge is in the light filled conservatory and shares the same style of furniture with the adjacent Long Lounge. The intention here was to create flexibility to swap furniture between the two, depending on occasion and time of year.
At the rear of the hotel, the Long Lounge and Dog Lounge have no natural daylight, but clusters of smaller seating arrangements make them appear spacious and comfortable. Low level and task lighting create ambience.
The designated Dog Lounge allows owners to relax in the company of their pets. Furniture in this lounge was treated with a proprietary protector for ease of cleaning.
Existing carpets and décor throughout were retained; the new interior is complemented by a combination of contemporary fabrics and classic furniture styles in what is essentially a traditional English Country Hotel.
