A ROMANTIC STUDY WITH CAMPION PLATT

Campion Platt Study

 

Ultimate Library was honoured to be the books sponsor for Campion Platt’s study at the inaugural Holiday House London.  Holiday House NYC, was founded in 2008 by Iris Dankner, an interior designer and breast cancer survivor. The event, where interior designers and other luxury brands collaborate to showcase their craftsmanship in two adjoining houses in London, raises the necessary funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Each designer was allotted a room in one of the luxurious homes in St. John’s Wood and asked to come up with a concept and theme to decorate the space.

.

The result was a kaleidoscopic miasma of some of the weirdest and most wonderful designs you could hope for. Each room was bursting with colour, texture and imagination. So, you can only imagine our excitement when Ultimate Library were asked to team up with the inimitable designer-to-the-stars, Campion Platt.

Holiday House London Study

.

Campion Platt had been charged with the task of designing a gentleman’s study. In collaboration with the sensational joiner, Clive Christian, and the sponsorship of NYC&G, they created a wonderful sanctuary of calm. The St. Valentines themed room was inspired by secrets, Victorian love and hidden spaces, all notions which ultimately lead to our modern interpretation of Valentine’s Day.

.

We collaborated with Campion to choose the books that suited the style and theme of the study. Our book collection was able to conjure up ideas of love, passion and importantly the notion of Valentine’s Day through both the books content and style. The pink and red spines of the bespoke collection not only evoked ideas of love, but also reflected the colours of Breast Cancer Research. The study, designed for the cosmopolitan gentleman, additionally featured several books on luxury hobbies, gentleman’s tailoring and fashion.

.

We placed over 300 titles into the luxurious study. The collection was made up of a range of formats; reading and illustrated titles to reflect the beauty of this opulent study. Glossy coffee table books, such as Art of the Erotic (Phaidon), The Perfect Gentleman: The Pursuit of Timeless Elegance and Style in London (James Sherwood and Terence Stamp) and Mario Testino Undressed educed themes of passion and style. Whilst the hardback books like Love Letters of Great Men by Ursula Doyle demonstrated the subject of love in the St Valentines study.
