The project

The din­ing room of this house near Sal­tash in Corn­wall has been given a look that is in keep­ing with the ar­chi­tec­tural style

MANY of the fur­nish­ings in the din­ing room at Tre­ma­ton Cas­tle near Sal­tash, which over­looks Ply­mouth Sound, were from the client’s for­mer home on the Scot­tish Is­lands. Among these were the beau­ti­ful Agra rug, the ma­hogany ta­ble and a strik­ing set of Daniell prints that Ed­ward felt would look best against a rich, warm back­drop. With this in mind, he chose Brick, from his own range of nat­u­ral paints that com­ple­ment the room’s Re­gency fea­tures. The striped blue cur­tains are hung on brass poles and marry both the colours in the rug and the walls. At the fire­place are mar­ble busts of Charles James Fox and Napoleon. The set of Gil­lows chairs was ac­quired spe­cially for the project. The re­sult is a room that, de­spite its grandeur, has an in­ti­mate feel for en­ter­tain­ing. Giles Kime
