The illustrious history of Bovey Castle has inspired a flexible and vivid play on art nouveau style in the form of a bespoke carpet from Wilton Carpets Commercial, highlighted with rich purple hues and flashes of accent tones.
Wilton Carpets Commercial created design options based upon the brief given to NH Interiors – who re-designed the hotel’s public spaces – and the decision was made to opt for a subtle two-tone stria that could exist on its own, or be overlaid by an elegant and intricate damask to add visual depth and interest in key areas.
Wilton then provided recolourings of the design until the base tones and highlights provided the ideal scheme from which to create the rest of the interior.
Choosing a subtle colour palette of grey and neutrals, highlighted with a rich purple and flashes of accent colour, gives the carpet an elegant quality that achieves the fine balance between paying homage to the history and Jacobean style architecture, without sacrificing a sense of luxurious modernity.
Expertly installed by AJ Rudd Contracts, the 125m² of bespoke axminster carpet were woven in a high-quality 80% wool 10-row construction to help combat the traffic encountered in this 63-bedroom hotel.
