Bellinter House: Part 3
The lounge area was probably my favourite space in the whole hotel. It was a mish-mash of old and new, antique and modern, mid-century and Edwardian. Animal heads adorned the walls, but in the form of paper lanterns. Upholstery ranged from leather to velvet to tweed, and were set off by lamps with shades made of paper, wicker, and translucent silver plastic. With a roaring open fire (which was slightly unnecessary in the sweltering heat) and massive floor to ceiling windows, I was in heaven!
