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.
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.
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.
