Welcome to the newest blog in our spotlight series where we’ll be shining a light on some of our favourite interior designers, stylists, architects, and Instagrammers, discovering the inspirations behind their projects and how they’ve used Ted Todd floors.
This week, we spoke to Lindsey Jones, Creative Director at Studio Walcot. Based in the Bath, Studio Walcot specialises in creating timeless interiors designed to harmonise, not shout. They create curated schemes for boutique hideaways and hotels and deliver residential design through a considered approach.
Tell us a little bit about your company and what you do.
Studio Walcot is a COVID success story, the company was established in 2019 securing their first whole home project shortly before the UK went into lockdown.
Simple, calm, and natural pared back schemes that allow the bones of the building and its architectural details to shine. Mixing old and new to create lived-in, timeless spaces. Always well curated but never overdesigned.
We are also moving to a new working studio and showroom later this year where we will be launching our first collection of interior homewares.
Tell us how you got into interior design?
We spent the duration of the pandemic working remotely, ensuring that the core of our design business was solid and building relationships with prospective clients and suppliers. We have managed to do that successfully, having launched post-pandemic and grown our design studio organically with a number of commercial and residential projects across the South of the UK.
What are your greatest influences?
As we are located in the centre of Bath, a world heritage city amidst beautiful Georgian architecture; and so naturally we take inspiration from this. Our surroundings hugely inspire us whether that be city life, the coast or the countryside; and wherever our projects are located we always pull aspects from the surroundings into the design concept to create an immersive space that feels rooted in its location. We are lucky enough to be working on projects in stunning locations across the South of the UK so we are never short of inspiration.
Do you have any notable projects where you have specified Ted Todd floors?
We have recently finished Paragon Project, a beautifully renovated one bedroom apartment situated amidst the Georgian elegance of Bath. The brief was to create a contemporary take on classic Georgian that allowed the bones of the building and its beautiful features to shine. Cashmere herringbone floor was chosen for the open plan living area, hallway and bedroom, creating a natural flow throughout the whole apartment.
Our client fell in love with the tone and texture of the Cashmere immediately. We needed to specify a floor that was hardwearing and durable for commercial use but that would age beautifully with a natural patina over time.
We are currently working on a beautiful apartment with estuary views Salcombe, a boutique hotel in Bath and a farmhouse in Somerset. The Ted Todd team was fantastic to work with and with their extensive portfolio of wood floors means regardless of whether we are working on projects in the city, country or coast, we can specify their flooring for future schemes.
