Nature on Tap
Dramatic Transitional Hallway by Connie Matsumoto
Inspired by the 400 year old beer cask head and our deep regard for honoring English Tudor architecture, our design celebrates old world hospitality with warmth and elegance. Within the stylish passageway, Glynallyn guests may be offered English ale, served in lovely etched glassware from the antique cask. In honor of Morris & Company's 150th Anniversary, we chose fabrics from the archive collection, authentically English designs, newly interpreted with timeless appeal. The embroidered drapery fabric is based on the bed-hangings in Morris¿s bedroom at Kelmscott Manor. Brer Rabbit, first registered in 1882, was used to create the skirt around the table finished in an Italian lime-based Marmorino plaster. From top to bottom, decorative finishes add timeless elegance and luminous drama. Decorative paints and glazes produce a beautiful, reflective finish on vintage plaster walls and ceilings that now shimmer as the morning dew. The plaster is enhanced to emulate aged ornamental wood, providing a framework for finely hand painted elements, and the hardwood floor is embellished with a wood stain decorative inlay. For a touch of whimsy: our original design hand painted Bottoms Up pillow and tree of life wall hanging, Drink to the days that are. William Morris.
