Hotel Interior Design

Commercial Interior Designers in Surrey

Commercial Hotel interior design requires a different approach to that of a residential design. The interior scheme needs to meet a variety of criteria. Whilst reaching out to satisfy the tastes of the hotel’s clientele – old and new. Longevity and duration are key to any commercial design. However, a boutique hotel of this nature is more ‘home’ than ‘hotel’. Also, needs a sympathetic eye on comfort.


The Ship Hotel Chichester

The Ship Hotel Chichester has undergone an overhaul on its grandeur. Whilst remaining true to its Georgian origins. The Silkroad commissioned to roll out an interior design scheme. For all the downstairs’ communal areas. This was to ensure a relaxing, stylish and above all welcoming feel. The location of this hotel is in the heart of Chichester. It needed to offer clients an escape from the busy and noisy city outside. As a result of this, the designer’s focus was to create a ‘home from home’ atmosphere. Without compromising the hotel’s features. Whilst celebrating the hotel’s history.


The downstairs areas reconfigured starting with the entrance lobby. Bespoke wooden flooring leads clients to the reception desk. This area enjoys leather effect wallpaper, and a statement piece in the form of an oversized urn and stunning moss ball. The latter, enjoyed as guests climb the grand Adam Staircase to the first floor. Despite its simplicity. First impressions offer guests a taste of the sophistication and classy style of the Hotel.


The overall scheme aimed to reflect a hint of ‘colonialism’. Brought about by the dark wooden flooring – coloured and distressed to reflect age and character. Muted colours introduced in the soft furnishings and bespoke carpets designed especially for the hotel. The dramatic use of plants in the Dining area further nods to the days of the empire.


From the entrance lobby, the accessorised Lounge, with chesterfield and roaring log fire awaits guests. A popular meeting place for shoppers. The Lounge and Captains Bar buzzes with life. From those wishing only for a coffee to others who prefer the sound of corks popping. The introduction of colour is subtle, but the ‘Georgian red’ creates an impact. This is because of the dark wooden shelving. Which has been sourced to match the same shade of red as the newly built and well-stocked bar area.
