Interior Design - Traditions, Trends and Timelessness

In 2019 three stunning retirement village interior projects were delivered - Cooper’s Hill in Englefield Green, Stanbridge Earls in Romsey and the refurbishment at Clevedon in Ilkley, Yorkshire. Each has their own visual identity based on the site locality and history, yet

all are recognisably ‘Audley’ - comfortable, luxurious and inviting.

The wonderful Victorian gothic architecture of Cooper’s Hill House is now complemented by a rich and dramatic interior featuring chairs upholstered with velvet and gold studding details. There are nods to maximalism - eclectic, grand and fun - the style where ‘more is more’. We have used museum art on loan and a mix of accessories. 

In an earlier post last year we talked about sage green being a big trend and how green in general is good for promoting health and wellbeing. With that in mind the Bodhi Tree Spa at Cooper’s Hill has pops of green teamed with driftwood sculptures to boost feelings of positivity, serenity and create a connection with nature.

Stanbridge Manor at Stanbridge Earls is ahead of the curve with blue features throughout the scheme. Pantone’s colour of the year 2020 - ‘Classic Blue’ - was announced at the end of last year and will influence interiors across the world. The blue accents at Stanbridge Manor help to create flow and unify the different pockets of space, whilst working brilliantly against the beautiful and ornate Tudor wooden panelling, part of the charming and historic Grade II* listed structure. Again, we’ve created a layered interior with accessories from different time periods and museum art to give a sophisticated, luxurious and established feel.

It was exciting to see the refurbishment at Audley Clevedon breathe a new lease of life into the property. The colour palette is drawn from the panoramic countryside setting. Rich and earthy greens combined with stone blues and wildflower yellows are representative of the spectacular views reaching out over Ilkley and the surrounding moors. Framed maps of the area along with bicycle prints adorn the walls in the bar bistro, referencing the now famous ‘Tour de Yorkshire’, promoting discussion and socialisation. 

And now for 2020!

Nightingale Place in Clapham is set to open this year. It is the first Audley Village to be located in London and will have a cosmopolitan feel as well as being a sanctuary in the city. The scheme features nods to many emerging interior trends for 2020; Art Deco curves to help soften the space, sumptuous velvets and contrasting metals. In the entrance there will be a beautiful curved Julian Chichester sofa upholstered in mustard velvet and a statement circular table, creating a grand centrepiece.

We will also be fitting out new Audley Villages at Sunningdale Park in Ascot, Scarcroft near Leeds and Cobham in Surrey. Each will be distinctly themselves, whilst remaining true to the Audley brand. We’re really looking forward to seeing the designs become reality, ready to welcome new owners.
