The Cookie Jar
A cosy retreat in the heart of Northumberland, the former Convent of Mercy has been renovated into 11 luxurious and stunning suites. The epitome of unique modern hospitality, this historical building is anything but ordinary. Earlier this year, we worked alongside the owners to design and produce top quality flooring for all bedrooms and communal areas of the hotel.
It was really important that we worked with the existing beautiful look and feel of the Cookie Jar. The flooring had to complement and enhance the lavish yet cosy vibes that this boutique oozes. Eaton Square and The Cookie Jar made the perfect partnership, adding individual character, attention to detail, tons of style and high quality.
The owners wanted a mix of carpet and wood flooring, so that each room had a sense of individuality and personality. The stunning and quirky touches of décor such as church bell ropes, giant birdcages, beams and exposed stone walls needed a classic hue that would let it shine. Together we decided on a lineal loop pile carpet called Tightrope, in the shade Eiderdown.
The common areas of the hotel had a different set of requirements: robust, hard-wearing and strong flooring was crucial. Of course, stunning aesthetics was also top of the list, and there was one Eaton Square range that instantly came to mind. Ticking off all the boutiques needs; our Spice range was the perfect fit. Loop pile carpet made from pure wool, it’s textured sophistication is designed for heavy use, but not at the compromise of its visual appeal.
For the wood flooring, the owners decided on our beautiful Avoriaz range. The Cookie Jar is an idyllic retreat for those looking for a countryside break, so we felt it important to bring the outdoors in. This rustic grade wood has distinct knots that aligned with the rural ambiance of the boutique. Hard-wearing, dependable, and more attractive with time, this range is ideal for the common areas of any hotel.
