Location Spotlight: Homewood House
Sophie Hitchens Tuesday 22nd March 2016 0 Comments
Quite a few of our Light Locations abound with period charm, detail and finishing that lend themselves to amazing backdrops for stylists and photographers.
One such property is Homewood House in Somerset, which was new to us in 2015. It has proved incredibly popular with our clients due in part to its variety of historical features and the variety of styles within one location.
Since arriving on our books in summer last year, it has been used in a variety of photo shoots including a stunning piece in Homes and Gardens about the beauty of using brass in your interior design.
Homewood House is a glorious period house first built as a farmhouse in the mid to late 18th Century. Its Georgian history makes it reminiscent of a Jane Austen novel, especially from the outside, with its sweeping driveway, stone façade and cobbled courtyard.
As with many old properties it proceeded to be subject to various period additions, which add to a hybrid of style and architecture. Whilst many of its features are Georgian, it also has nods to the Victorian era, notably the front section of the house, which was added around 1850.
The current owners have brought a new lease of life to this elegant location with interior design that pays tribute to its history but also utilizes the drama that today’s interior design allows. Recent dramatic changes to the colours at Homewood House not only illustrate the versatility of the rooms but also the impact of colour.
The result is a hugely versatile photo shoot location, with elements ranging from the dark and moody purple bedroom walls to the clean and crisp bursts of colour delivered via cleverly chosen feature furniture pieces. The calm and serene flagstone floor dining area adds a further dimension and style as does the cosy snug with its satin and velvet sofas.
We love the variety of styles at Homewood House. Which is your favourite style and space in this amazing homage to days gone by?
