Welcome to Edinburgh and the Baroness room in Barony House B&B. Recently redecorated, this room has a pleasant outlook over our peaceful rear garden and contains many bespoke treats.
The room is themed with warm, light colours to take full advantage of the natural light. The inclusion of antique brass/gold highlights with stone tops, are designed to create a feeling of calm/luxury fit for The Baroness of the house.
Susan not only designed the theme of this room but she hand-finished the walls, hand-made the opulent bed head and hand-made the butterfly feature. The bed head features up-cycled vintage brass buttons and we are reminded of our location with a Scottish tartan draped over the velvet finish. The LED lights help create atmosphere and can be switched on or off at the bedside.
The butterfly feature includes clay butterflies hand-made by Susan from scratch over many weeks. Sadly there are not as many as originally intended thanks to our youngest daughter, Primrose who discovered a full box of brittle, incomplete butterflies to tip all over our hardwood floor. Bless her. Our butterflies were kiln fired by a local ceramics shop http://www.doodlesscotland.co.uk/
The chandelier is a fully restored vintage piece containing authentic French crystal. We are lucky to be living in a modern age where LED technology is able to bring this old piece back to life so brilliantly. Topped with a crown décor, matching the theme of the bed head.
A final mention for this room is the original positioning of the bathroom vanity. In Victorian times, it was traditional to have the vanity positioned in the corner of the lady’s bedroom in isolation. It is modernised and enhanced to meet the expectations of luxury for your comfort. Its location stands out as an authentic feature of the original home and of this special room.
