Bert’s Boxes, part of The Bert & May Group, have worked with acclaimed Falmouth hotel, Merchants Manor, to provide unique apartments that provide a relaxing, inviting and unique retreat. Working with interior designer Helen Hughes, Bert & May have provided tactile living spaces that offer the last word in style and relaxation.
The exterior & interior walls are clad in stunning reclaimed timber, the floors clad in handmade tiles and wide opening doors lead out onto a terraced area. The characterful interiors have bespoke kitchens and uniquely designed fittings with handmade brass taps and showers, giving an industrial edge and timeless finish. With a modern rustic feel that has become synonymous with the brand, the spaces at Merchants Manor exude personality and warmth – and their recent five star rating is testament to that.
Lee Thornley, Founder of Bert & May comments: “We have loved working on this project, it is great to see our statement aesthetic in one space, it demonstrates how well our different materials all work together and complement each other. The perfect fit for a luxury, relaxed retreat”
Merchants Manor comments: “We wanted to created spaces that offered warmth and comfort, while at the same time offered guests a real feeling that they had got away from it all and offered something aspirational and uplifting.
“Bert & May worked their magic alongside Helen Hughes, weaving a gentle garden theme with muted greens and texture for landlubber and a strong nod to the nautical in Lookout with blue hues and a strong monochrome theme running throughout.”
Helen Hughes comments: “Selecting individual palettes for both apartments from the beautiful Bert & May ranges was the starting point of the design process. Once defined, the spaces were furnished with a stylish mix of vintage, new and found pieces that were upholstered in a vibrant mix of bold and colourful fabrics. Slight nods to the coastal location and shipping history of Falmouth complete the look.
