This project was originally a hotel and the Schloss enterprise intended to use it as their flagship hotel in the UK. Story decorated the front of house hotel, bedrooms, corridors, back of house, gun & boot room and externals and helped to create a boutique hotel on a legendary Scottish golf course.

As it was an old building, the walls were very uneven and unaligned. The team had to use mechanical sanders with dust extraction to get the walls into the best condition possible prior to applying paper.

Rooms and areas had to always be left tidy so that any deliveries in our absence were not held up. As always on fast track projects, towards the end more resource and hours were required to ensure we hit the client’s deadline so that guest were able to stay in rooms already booked.

This project in particular was taken from an old run down, dated hotel and brought back to life with lots of unique finishes, fixtures & fittings and a plethora of colours from the client’s design brief. As the flagship UK hotel for Schloss, this project had to be completed on time and to a top-quality finish resulting in a very happy client and a fantastic project for Story to be proud of.
