Case study: music room

Hallidays were contacted by a Wiltshire-based client who asked us to create a wood panelled room in which he could relax as well as conduct business, and that reflected his love of music.

The focal point of the room is a hand-carved pine mantelpiece depicting a variety of stringed instruments from throughout the ages - from Grecian Harps through to Electric Guitars, nestling amongst delicately carved foliage.

Two doorways are disguised as bookshelves holding traditional hand made Vellum bound books. Specially comissioned for the project, books bearing the names of the client and his friends are interspersed amongst classical works.

A deep triple-sided window seat also conceals radiators, with hand-made fine brass grilles allowing heat into the room.

The elegant simplicity of the completed room, in Hallidays' hand stained and waxed finish, provides the perfect backdrop for any occasion - from an afternoon by the fire with a good book to entertaining a group of friends after dinner.
