Master Arts & Crafts Bedroom
New to Blackwell in 2016 is the Master Arts & Crafts bedroom inspired from Baillie Scott’s designs and interpreted by contemporary designers. The bedroom display has been established in the room that was originally the master bedroom when the Holts enjoyed Blackwell as their holiday home.
We have worked with a 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 has retained its original features of a fireplace inglenook with tiles by William De Morgan, wooden panelling, wooden window seat, oak floor and carved ceiling. The central feature is an oak bed which has been especially commissioned from an actual design by Baillie Scott, taken 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 is also on display.
