The Bloomsbury

Situated in the heart of Bloomsbury in London, this famous hotel is where the Queen first learnt to swim.
<p>Working closely with the client we were tasked with creating a bespoke wallpaper to fully wrap the Lutyens designed George V function room. The design was a unique challenge as it needed to flow seamlessly from the wall panels through the ornate frieze and into the many ceiling coffers.</p> <p>Our inspiration for the design was King George V’s love of travel. With this in mind we created a horizon of distant mountains and shore lines populated with creatures and plants from all corners of the globe. In the foreground we used a trellis detail entwined with hand-painted roses through which the distant vistas are glimpsed. Exotic birds race across the ceiling with clouds lazily drifting from one coffer to the next.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
