Design brief
Rumana Swinton was asked by Flemings to design the Reception. Transforming the space into an elegant and plush interior Rumana drew upon the buildings illustrious past and in particular its connection with the Great Exhibition of 1851.  Creating a décor which echoes a classic aesthetic Rumana reinstated architectural features to ensure the space had a strong sense of history, Timber wall panelling, an illuminated coffered ceiling, herringbone parquet flooring and the installation of a stunning period marble fire place. Hand painted panels depicting ‘Early Views of India’ were set into wall panels, reflecting the British Empires connection with the Indian sub-continent.  Hand crafted furniture features vibrant luxurious fabrics, which are complimented by an array of antiques and objet which fill the room, allowing guests to discover different elements of the interior each time they visit.
