Master Arts & Crafts Bedroom
This Autumn we are opening a new Master Arts & Crafts bedroom inspired from Baillie Scott’s designs and interpreted by contemporary designers. This will be established in the room that was originally the master bedroom when the Holts enjoyed Blackwell as their holiday home.
We are working with a textile historian and Arts & Crafts specialists to imagine what a master bedroom may have looked like if Baillie Scott had been commissioned to create such a space at Blackwell. The room will retain its original features of a fireplace inglenook with tiles by William De Morgan, wooden panelling, wooden window seat, oak floor and carved ceiling. We will show in the room objects by Baillie Scott and have commissioned an oak bed from an actual design by Baillie Scott from the Pyghtle Works catalogue printed in 1901. We have on loan a copy of this important record of the furniture designed by Baillie Scott and made by J.P. White at the Pyghtle Works which will be on display.
