Bloomsbury Motifs

Decoration of a seventeeth-century cottage in Sussex. Our brief was to add a touch of the Bloomsbury Group, the collective of artists and writers who lived locally at Charleston farmhouse in the early twentieth-century.

The Bloomsbury Group brought their art off the canvas, adorning the walls and furniture of Charleston with geometric patterns and whimsical illustrations.A narrow scalloped frieze along the top of each bookcase references the fireplace in Duncan Grant's studio at Charleston, and antique furniture pieces are decorated with playful patterns and motifs. The result is a characterful home layered with texture and pattern.
