A touch of the Liberty of the West Country
In keeping with our vision to give our guests an extensive choice when it comes to intriguing, one-of-a-kind rooms to stay in, we’ve invited Rossiters, a design-led furniture, home interiors and gift emporium set in three beautiful Georgian town houses in the centre of Bath, to create two of our rooms schemes. Open in the city since 1961, and known locally known as the Liberty of the West Country, they know a thing or two about the discerning interiors tastes of their customers both near and far.
“No.15 Great Pulteney is set in one of Bath’s most elegant streets and has the luxury of looking out to the sensory gardens of Henrietta Park – this has been a major source of inspiration for us,” explains Ann-Marie James, buying director and owner at Rossiters. “We were also very inspired by the phrase “luxury for the curious,” that managing director Jonathan used to describe the overall style of the hotel, and we loved the idea that guests stepping into the hotel would discover a slightly more eccentric beauty within, compared to the classical beauty outside.
“We are still working on ideas – and selecting schemes from the five very different looks that our team have come up with is going to be a challenge – but we intend to create rooms that have instant appeal to guests arriving full of anticipation of luxury, comfort, glamour and fun. To reflect Rossiters’ signature style, the room will be instantly inviting with pleasingly rich textures and colour, with some unexpected little details too.
“It’s very exciting to take part in the creation of what’s going to be an incredibly unique and beautiful hotel. For us it’s an opportunity have fun expressing our own unique style, knowing that it’s going to be enjoyed by so many different people.”
