Today, we're off to The Cotswolds to focus on the eye-wateringly beautiful interiors of Farncombe Estate hotels, including Foxhill Manor, The Fish and Dormy House. Join us as we highlight some of our most loved interior brands so you can recreate the five-star style of each hotel in your own home. Full of luxury, yet brimming with that wonderfully welcoming country chic, we love these looks. Read on to see how you can get the look of each hotel with your wedding presents.
Foxhill Manor is a grade II country home overlooking the charming Cotswolds village of Broadway. It’s an Arts and Crafts house with an abundance of character and original features both inside and out. The interiors are respectful to their surroundings and highlight features such as the amazing triple aspect windows. To recreate this look – you will want to select homewares in soft pastel colours and a neutral base. You can then inject some colour and pattern in cushions, throws and artwork.
For the bedroom focus on making your bed feel as luxurious as possible. Choose high quality white bedlinen, a top quality duvet and pillows. Add some pattern and texture to the room by choosing scatter cushions and throws or quilts for the bed. Also consider adding in some occasional seating, so that you can have a relaxing spot to sit in. A lovely armchair is a great addition to your wedding list, as it is something that you can take from home to home in the future.
The key things to take away from the sitting room at the Foxhill Manor is that the room is inviting and adaptable. Whether you want to sit by the fire, or play a board game, or even have tea and cake, the room effortlessly lends itself to every occasion. Providing enough side tables and seating that is easy to move helps with this. Investing in a great quality sofa is also a great idea when building your wedding list. Our go-to brands for sofas include Sofa.com, Oka and Andrew Martin – all made to last.
The bathrooms at Foxhill Manor are inviting and warm. Adding colour to the bathrooms really helps achieve this, bathrooms don’t have to be all white. Adding seating and side tables also help the bathroom feel like an extension of other living areas. Again, bathroom lighting doesn’t have to be spotlights, you can add to the ambiance with mounted wall nights which look wonderful either side of a mirror.
Foxhill Manor is set in over 400 acres of Cotswold countryside. To make your outside space feel like a luxury hotel experience, it's all about creating ambiance. Position seating around a firepit, have clusters of lanterns and have snuggly blankets for those chillier evenings. A fire pit is a brilliant wedding present, and is one of the most popular presents for guests to gift!
The Fish hotel has 63 boutique rooms in total, but the most appealing to us is their selection of unique treehouse rooms, a shepherds hut and a coach house. These are the perfect secluded spot for some R&R with the rolling Cotswolds hills at the heart of your stay.
If you love this calm and natural look, then gravitate towards using colours you would find in nature such as beige, greens and chalky whites. This also applies to texture – stick to natural textures such as wool, wicker, rattan, leather and natural wood. This earthy colour scheme has a relaxing feeling and focuses on the natural world outside.
It may be a tad ambitious to recreate this treetop alfresco bathroom at home - but there are ways to build in this botanical style. Add plants to your bathroom to bring the space to life and soften the room. You can now add Patch Plants vouchers to your wedding list, or you could opt for a faux plant with minimal maintenance required. Make it feel really indulgent with fluffy towels and bath robes and a glass of champagne - because, why not!
Dormy House is a 17th century farmhouse which has been given a modern style by interior designers Todhunter Earle and Farncombe’s Design Director, Nette Reynolds. Each room has a very unique style but the use of unexpected colour and pattern is very effective. The interiors epitomise Farmhouse Chic – perfect for those who love luxurious, sumptious interiors in the middle of the countryside.
To recreate this farmhouse chic look – focus on mixing in some natural materials such as wood and wicker with opposite textures such as metal and gloss. Be bolder with your use of colours. Add pops of colour in your use of paint, lamps, artwork and cushions.
If you would like to recreate this farmhouse chic aesthetic in your home, then follow these simple steps. Simply build your wedding list of classic china in whites and off whites, opts for natural linens and add texture with rattan accessories. At the heart of this look is a great quality wooden dining table. For dining tables, our go-to brands are Oka and Neptune for a timeless design that will stand the test of time.
