Built in 1900, Curzon Hall was the home of Isabella Curzon Webb, a relative of Lord Curzon who at the time was the Viceroy of India. The elegant sandstone manor has had many incarnations in its history. In 1983 it was purchased and transformed into one of Sydney’s most elegant and unique function venues.
In recent years, Karen Wallace from KW Interiors has been the appointed architect and designer responsible for the development and refurbishment at the mansion, most recently updating the magnificent function spaces and grand entrance area.
Karen’s inspiration for Curzon Hall was to create an elegant and rich interior that was sympathetic to the historic building but at the same time injecting glamour and excitement into each space. Karen had long been a fan of Brintons’ elaborate Timorous Beasties ‘First Weave’ Collection. When the most recent Curzon Hall project came about Karen knew immediately that she would use the over-scaled and intricately layered damask designs from the collection.
I am thrilled with the result of the Brintons carpet at Curzon Hall. Brintons really excel at accurately flooding a design into a floorplan which makes my job easier to show my client exactly how the space can be transformed. The interaction with Brintons throughout the design process was collaborative and the end result has exceeded my expectations.
