Luxury Design Hotel in the Heart of Mid-Wales
Rob Perham & Clive Sweeting took on the renovation of the large, 7 bedroom Country house known locally as Llywnaire with a clear vision of creating something very special in the heart of the Mid Wales countryside. I met them at the very beginning of their journey.
Our involvement in their exciting project was flooring, tracks and drapes. The brief I received from our first meeting was understated luxury; Rob & Clive were very easy clients to work with and knew exactly what they wanted. The bedroom carpets had to be soft, quiet, long-lasting and compliment their dark, mood enhancing colour schemes and their superb eclectic mix of furniture and art.
All of the bedrooms were fitted with a sound reduction and insulating underlay for super comfort and warmth. We were tasked to reduce both airborne and impact sound in one large area of the house and installed a specialist acoustic system to meet this brief. It was quite a challenge in such a period property with many gaps sought out and sealed prior to the installation of the system and the carpets.
Phase two was the curtains, again Rob & Clive knew exactly the texture, colour and quality they were looking for and I was really happy they found the perfect fabric at Liberty. Imogen, a Design Graduate worked at Liberty before, during and after her degree and assisted Rob & Clive beautifully. Imogen looked after their order all the way through including assisting Darren and me with the installation of the bespoke tracks and hanging of the drapes. Because the windows are so large and of bespoke and original sizes, everything was handmade to order, each track in every one of the grand bay windows had to be specially made at the factory from a template we provided of each bay. The curtains are made extra long and they carry on the opulence of each guest bedroom seamlessly.
Rob & Clive have created such a unique and luxury Design Hotel, I was in my element working with them at The Royston. They have appeared in numerous magazines and publications and received numerous awards and accolades already, including being voted the Best Hotel in Wales 2019 and recently appearing in the Times’ Top 80 British Hotels.
“It was a pleasure working with Nicky and the team at Liberty Furnishings. From the initial consultations and advice, to fabric and carpet suggestions, measuring, ordering and installation – the attention to detail, care and consideration was amazing. 3 years on and we’re still getting comments on our custom made curtains and carpets, so that says it all.”
