Sopwell House gets a further ‘sparc’ of creativity

Sparcstudio, an independent, creative design studio with a reputation for excellence in the spa, wellness, hotel and resort sectors, has developed a new design concept for guestrooms in the mansion house at Sopwell House. We stepped inside to get a cheeky look…

Following on from its design for the Sopwell House Mews Suites – an earlier for the design studio – Sparcstudio was enlisted for a new project, to create a fresh, wellness-inspired room category marketed as the ‘Chic’. Inspired by the natural themes and palette that Sparcstudio developed for the Cottonmill Spa at Sopwell House, the team has incorporated bespoke furniture and features stunning panelling and lighting all designed with comfort in mind.

The brief was to create rooms with a contemporary glamorous country house feel that were both welcoming and restoring. The soft palette features a bright fresh feel with a lighting scheme designed to ensure that the rooms are still cosy on a winter’s night. Bespoke seating furniture is soft and curvaceous and includes lounge a chaise lounge with mohair cushions in pastel hues. This design note is also reflected in the backlit upholstered headboard.

The furniture includes fluted timber detailing and contemporary panelling on the feature headboard and wardrobes. Sparcstudio commissioned bespoke lighting for each of the rooms which was manufactured by Northern Lights. The rooms also boast concealed LED fittings which softly illuminate the customised vintage tree mural wall coverings.

“We are proud to continue our close partnership with the team at Sopwell House,” said Beverley Bays,  Co-Founder & Creative Director, Sparcstudio. “Having successfully completed projects in the Mews Suites and the Cottonmill Spa, it was natural for us to infuse this style into the new bedroom category. We developed this bedroom concept with the aim of creating a relaxed tranquil atmosphere that is all about comfort. Soft lighting and bespoke furniture create an element of contemporary luxury, which can offer cosy comfort on a cold winter’s evening.”

“When we decided we wanted to create luxurious bedrooms within our historic mansion house there was only ever one design company we would possibly use, and we love their work,” said Rafi Bejerano, FIH MI, Owner, Sopwell House. “Sparcstudio have worked with us very successfully with the creation of the Mews Suites followed by the multi-award winning Cottonmill Spa. Perhaps just as importantly their attention to detail, patience and ability to understand our market and customers is as valuable. This was a complicated refurbishment with most bedrooms requiring bespoke design and creative use of space and furniture, and we are delighted with the results – as are our guests.”
