Catalogue

Situated in extensive grounds on the outskirts of Oxford, Eynsham Hall is a magnificent country mansion. Built in 1908 by Lady Mason, Eynsham Hall is wonderful example of the Jacobean Style very much in vogue at the turn of the twentieth century.

Originally the gunroom for the Mason family's collection of firearms, the new bar, now known as The Gunroom, fuses old with new, with a touch of art deco glamour. The original oak panelling has been carefully restored and against the warm oak finish you can now find traditional Chesterfield sofas and classic tub chairs upholstered in canary yellow leather and pop art inspired fabrics. The bar counter is an island of decadent, black glass and polished chrome sitting in the gigantic, leaded bay window overlooking the grounds.

Following the completion of The Gunroom, Project Orange turned their attention to the guest bedrooms, all greatly in need of refurbishment. With no two bedrooms alike and with a series of very small bedrooms to the second floor, we were presented with a very difficult design challenge. The first floor deluxe bedroom with a fabulous bay window and magnificent marble fireplace has been brought back to life with a mixture of old-fashioned luxury and quirky modern highlights; a traditional "Knole" two-seater sofa is upholstered in a vibrant, flock fabric and and Bertoia Diamond Chiars contrasted with Victorian chest of drawers. Previously a tired meeting room, a luxurious, black marble bathroom has been installed within an elegant framed and panelled enclosure that doubles as the headboard to the bed and conceals wardrobes and storage.
