After a lovely country kitchen dinner at The Pig Hotel, Dorset we retired to the lounge where I took this photograph of the trompe l’oeil plaster work. I think it looks fab and is a precursor of the whole place. Here is how the owners describe the hotel –
‘Home grown in every way – breaking the mould of designed boutique hotels, daring to be comfortable in its own skin, working with what it has and recognising what is good about that. It isn’t perfect, its warm, relaxed, comfy, interesting, and homely with muted colours, a bit shabby chic and evolved rather than interior designed –actually we have recycled a lot of stuff – restoring and reconditioning pieces but adding twists and quirks here and there. Sitting areas have big chairs and squashy sofas, roaring fires in winter and a relaxed bar to hang out in.’
Well worth a visit.
