Our brief was to create a warm and engaging space which would inspire authors and other visitors. The panelling around the Reception Room fireplace references the bold geometric shapes used by Duncan Grant, with a hand-painted fire screen inspired by his textile designs.

The panelling around the Author’s Room fireplace is inspired by the pulpit of Berwick Church, decorated by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant 1941-45. Berwick Church is local to Charleston Farmhouse, the Sussex home of the Bloomsbury Group, and it is also local to Tess and is where her children were christened.
