Hannah Nunn’s lamps and furnishings at Elmet Farmhouse
One of the pleasures of staying at Elmet Farmhouse is being able to enjoy the wonderful lamps, wallpapers and cushions by local designer Hannah Nunn.
Hannah is a celebrated lighting and wallpaper designer whose work has been featured in Country Living. Her exquisite cut-paper table lamps, decorated with delicate silhouettes of flowers and grasses, are dotted all over Elmet Farmhouse. So whether you’re relaxing downstairs by the fire in the evening or retiring to your cosy bedroom at night, you’ll be able to bask in the soft glow of these beautiful lamps.
Hannah’s designs are inspired by the natural world – feathery grasses, cow parsley, dandelion clocks and spherical alliums – flowers you can see in the fields and cottage garden at Elmet Farmhouse. It’s the structure of these plants that Hannah particularly admires, imaginatively captured in her finely-cut linear patterns.
Hannah’s beautiful textiles and wallpapers are printed in subtle colours with similar designs. These furnishings also adorn Elmet Farmhouse, adding to the charm of this characterful old house. Nestling under the eaves in the attic is her Paper Meadow wallpaper, complemented by an Ercol chair painted in the same teal blue…
…A spectacular floor to ceiling wallpaper frieze – In the Tall Grass – sprouts up behind the double bed in the master bedroom, bringing the lush midsummer meadow into the heart of the house…
…Curl up on the 18th century window seat with Hannah’s Paper Meadow cushions. Then look out of the stone mullion windows at the grasses and wildflowers, the inspiration for her designs…
Hannah Nunn’s creativity makes Elmet Farmhouse extra special. A harmonious combination of ancient and modern – totally unique.
