Colson’s Department Store
Mrs Colson opened her milliners shop in 1782 and over 100 years later the store was listed under the description Colson & Company drapers, silk mercers, milliners, costumiers, mantle makers, ladies’ & children’s outfitters, furriers & hosiers.
The building was rebuilt in a modernist style with horizontal fenestration and banding detail all these elements you will find stitched into the design of our Colson’s bedroom. The use of colour reflects the old department store, the shapes and style of the pneumatic tube cash carrier resonate in the headboard and corridor design. The styling of the room includes a glass fronted wardrobe capturing the haberdashery elements of the store, it like stepping back in time.
The House That Moved
Did you know about the house that completely moved? Number 16 Edmund Street dates back to 1430 the house is one of the oldest surviving structures in Exeter and it was carefully taken apart and moved up the street to make way for a new road, these bedrooms.
Focus on all things that can move or are now what they seem. The wardrobe and bathroom door are concealed within painted timber panelling and the paint colour is moved off the traditional line. Scissor lights and desk and a rocking chair combines with quirky artwork add to the story.
The Cathedral site has been the heart of Exeter since Roman times and the current building has the longest unbroken stretch of stone ceiling vaulting anywhere in the world. There is also an astronomical clock in the north transept dating back to the 15th century thought to be only one of four in England.
Cathedral Heritage bedrooms are inspired from the fascinating design details in and around the Cathedral Green and has used brass and timber with sumptuous colour fabrics to give a rich decadent feel.
