Bring­ing hol­i­day chic home

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - Contents - Jessica Doyle

HO­TEL DESIGN HAS be­come in­creas­ingly in­flu­en­tial in in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tion – and never more so than at this time of year, when we might be in­spired to bring the feel of a summer hol­i­day back home. Trop­i­cal decor doesn’t al­ways trans­late well to a Bri­tish in­te­rior, how­ever, and the paint colour that was per­fect in your rented Provençal farm­house might not stand up so well in a Vic­to­rian ter­race. Channellin­g the look of a Cotswolds cot­tage or a Cor­nish coastal re­treat – or even a lux­ury London ho­tel – is more achiev­able, and sev­eral com­pa­nies are now of­fer­ing ways to get that stay­ca­tion feel at home.

Bed­ding brand Coze was launched just over two years ago by broth­ers Ben and Dan Ros­ton, whose fam­ily busi­ness sup­plies bed­room and bath­room prod­ucts to ho­tels in­clud­ing The Savoy, The Dorch­ester and The Ritz. Its crisp white sheets, tow­els and throws, made from sus­tain­ably sourced ma­te­ri­als, will give your bed­room a five-star feel, and a new col­lec­tion in collaborat­ion with in­te­rior de­signer Sophie Pater­son offers the op­tion of mono­gram­ming in a choice of 13 colours.

On the Cor­nish coast, Bon Bon Fis­tral is a life­style bou­tique owned by Har­riet Bri­ant, who pre­vi­ously worked in the an­tiques in­dus­try. It offers a beachy, bo­hemian look in the form of shell pen­dants and wall hang­ings, chunky ceramics and blue glass­ware.

Also in Newquay, the Water­gate Bay Ho­tel, styled as a mod­ern beach re­treat, has part­nered for sev­eral years with the coun­try-liv­ing brand Joules, which has de­signed a suite (above right) at the ho­tel’s sis­ter prop­erty An­other Place, in the Lake Dis­trict. With an in­spir­ing palette of greens, greys and mus­tard, the suite is fur­nished with the brand’s bed­ding, kitchen­ware and pet beds, along with a col­lec­tion of so­fas and arm­chairs, which are avail­able to buy through DFS.

Sim­i­larly cater­ing to a stylishly rus­tic look, The Room Ser­vice was set up specif­i­cally to sell home­wares by in­de­pen­dent de­sign­ers and mak­ers, as used in ho­tels. Re­cent ad­di­tions in­clude botan­i­cal prints by Lucy Augé (spot­ted at the Beaver­brook in Sur­rey), and silk ikat lamp­shades by Sa­markand Design, as seen at Som­er­set’s Babing­ton House.
