Gilpin Spa Lodges

Following our successful work on the Gilpin Hotel we were asked to design the interiors of the Gilpins latest project in 201X, the Gilpin Spa Lodges, termed as ‘the ultimate indulgence’.

As designers we relished the opportunity to work with the aesthetic of these new build lodges in the context of their special location, embracing the compelling outdoor/indoor connection, whilst at the same time producing internal decor schemes that would have universal appeal to the hotel’s global audience.

Our brief was to create five individual private retreats in which guests could stay and enjoy uninterrupted quality time, benefiting from premium hotel facilities and services without needing to leave their own space. The aim was to raise the bar for spa luxury suites. The interior design played an integral role in creating a comforting cocoon, spectacular in any season, whilst omitting a feeling of calm and prompting peace of mind.


The Voreda suite emanates our passion for Scandinavian design while seamlessly taking influence from the English Lakes with the utilisation of natural wool, cotton textures and Lakeland stone. Timber in a variety of forms is dominant in the finishes, and contrasts beautifully with the bleached aesthetic. The earthy tones of the wood was combined with luxury furs and tactile skins add a soft warmth and comfort to the space.


Inspired by time in Morocco Giannoventa is enriched with native, authentic carved woods, lavish bronze tables, warm patterns, velvets, paisley fabrics, ornate mirrors and patchwork floor tiles. We wanted to create a carnival of vivid turquoise, burnt orange and pink. The eclectic mix of huge colour, sparkling polished ceramics and coloured glass showcase the best of moroccan style. All these elements take centre stage against the backdrop on neutral walls and the sand limestone floor.


This all white space brings Central Park chic to the Lake District. Everything in this bold design is a subtle off white enabling the space to still be peaceful, soft and relaxing. The durable faux leather, faux fur, white prime oak flooring, understatedly elegant furnishings, combined with contrasting soft grey wall panelling and crystalline formations ensure that as well as clean, shiny glamour there is plenty of depth in texture. The result is cool, minimalist sophistication that couldn’t complement the spectacular views of the fells any better.


The Tobacco factories of the deep South were powerful influences on this scheme. The layers upon layers of tobacco leaves baking in the sun, sweet scent, caramel and chocolate tones amongst impressive weaves have inspired the choice of faux leathers, textured furnishings and sculptural lighting. This combined with the accents of bronze, copper, tactile wood and occasional sheepskin results in a very rich, warming environment.


This suite was inspired by South Africa and Sarah’s travels between the Middle East and Europe. The vibrant, vivid mustard colour, sculptural ornaments, banana leaf wallpaper and palm leaf prints celebrates authentic tribal patterns and adds a contemporary twist to the predominantly black and white palate.
