Albion House Hotel Kent
A sorryful and abandoned Georgian gem, once home to Ramsgate town council had been empty for many years until our friends Ben and Emma managed to purchase it and turn it into the town's best hotel. We used to live on the same square and watched the scaffolding go up. Emma called us and asked if we'd be interested in helping her furnish the many rooms. Of course we would! So we all went on a massive buying spree. Helping with the final installation of furniture, decorative installations and wall hangings, the hotel opened in 2014 and hasn't looked back. Read more...

Transforming the main reception area into a lively and quirky space was no mean feat. This old country mansion in Oxfordshire, once a police training centre was now a hugely popular wedding venue.

It was only used as an overspill for wedding guests or a reception area for conferences and we wanted people to use the room, read their morning papers with a coffee, surf the web, all in a little comfort and some quirky style. We added displays with a nod to the history of the house, introduced classical English furniture from George III to the 1920's. Portriaits were hung. The transformation was complete! Read more...
