THE CURTIS ROOM
What’s in a name? Your room is named after the creator of the superb botanical pictures on the wall. Dating from the 1830s, they still delight the eye today. The silk curtains have a style all of their own, not surprising since they were made originally in 1896 to grace Grandmother’s Paris home. We don’t have an ‘official size’ for the bed! ‘King’ ‘Super-king’ ‘Emperor’, how would you describe a huge and hand-crafted fairy tale refuge, made especially for a family member standing six foot nine in his stockinged feet? Such a bed demands a throne, or at the very least a truly immense armchair. Settle in it with your laptop and return to modernity for a moment with the Wi-Fi link. Or sit at the antique desk and recall a time before email when the post came three times a day!This is a room with a view indeed. In fact it has two. If you tire, unlikely, of the outside prospect, you can always gaze through to the bathroom with its vast art deco bath. And the curtains are silk in here too, of course.
