The Curator's Apartment

"... aiming to achieve an authentic aesthetic that is cosy and personal, more “home” than “hotel”."

Art Filled Contemporary Holiday Let Apartment


The Curator's Apartment is located next to, and has lovely views over St Swithin's Church which was built between 1777 and 1790.


The church stands on the site of a previous place of worship dating back to the 10th century, the remains of which are beneath the crypt.

The famous novelist Jane Austen's parents were married at St Swithin's on 26 April 1764 and her father George Austen is buried there.



They approached Lawrence Calver with the idea of creating a bespoke art piece for the master bedroom, to elevate the colours and bring in another dimension with the added texture.


Art-Filled Contemporary split-level Maisonette located in a Grade II listed building at the centre of Bath's trendy Artisan Quarter. The 2 beds 1.5 baths generous apartment of 90 sqm offers a calming and comfortable space, whilst within steps of culture gemstones that the World Heritage City of Bath is known for.

The Walcot area is the essence of alternative life in the city, it brings together a vibrant, eclectic collection of characterful independents offering everything from vintage clothes to designer homeware and quirky artwork to delicious food.


For the interior concept, inspiration was drawn from the building itself and the surrounding neighbourhood. Situated above a vintage clothes shop and neighbour to several small art galleries, they imagined this would be the home of a well-travelled Curator. A person that loves vintage furnishing as well as modern pieces.

They commissioned bespoke art pieces that would complement the interiors of the apartment, aiming to achieve an authentic aesthetic that is cosy and personal, more “home” than “hotel”.

The studio was set up by Deborah Bain. Her appreciation for form, material, and texture add a level to her work that sets it apart. Large impact pieces are often balanced with finer, intimate details to create a look with style, elegance, and originality.
