Case Study | Georgian House West Sussex
This beautiful bathroom is part of a project by Spencer Swaffer Antiques in Arundel, West Sussex and was published in the August 2016 issue of Homes & Antiques.
John Constable, one of England’s finest painters of the Romantic period, stayed in this fine Georgian House in the early 1800s and even today the elegantly symmetrical facade remains unchanged. Once you’ve passed the front door, much of the similarity to the formality of that bygone era fades in an instant, but Spencer Swaffer have captured a sense of the antiquity of the property with rustic finishes, flagstone floors and selectively sourced antique pieces.
The bathroom is a more distinct departure from Spencer Swaffer’s antique aesthetic. The Drummonds’ bathroom pieces capture the look of the classics, but the soft grey scheme and matt finishes bring this beautiful bathroom up to date. The centre piece is the beautiful Tay cast iron roll top bath, which has been polished to give it an eye-catching shine that reflects the light. The polished cast iron of the bath elegantly pairs with the chrome Double Lowther Vanity Basin, 6-Bar towel rail and bathroom accessories.
