Colorful Rooms and Unique Decor in a Home in Bath

This stunning two-bedroom maisonette home is in a magnificent historic townhouse close to the city center of Bath. The home has recently been renovated by its current owner with the help of artist James Adams who transformed parts of the house with his decorative works.

The home is located in a Regency townhouse on Sion Hill Place, which is named by The Times as one of the best streets to live on in the United Kingdom. The houses were constructed in the early 19th century and featured high-quality craftsmanship and extremely fine plasterwork.

The 2,100 square feet home is packed with color, from a sunny yellow living room to an olive green kitchen and a red bathroom. Every room has a unique feature, whether it is the use of color, the decorative work by James Adams, or beautiful wallpaper. You must take a tour of this stunning home.


The sitting room lies at the front of the house, on the ground floor. The room is painted in a sunny yellow color, and as the room is south facing, this is even more cheerful when the sun floods into the room.


The living room features its original cornicing and ornate fireplace.


During the renovation, two new bookcases were fitted in the two niches flanking the fireplace. The green tone of the bookcase fits perfectly with the sunny yellow of the walls.


Through the double doors in the living room, you enter a room that was originally a “withdrawing room” or a library. It is now the master bedroom.


The yellow color palette continues in the bedroom with lovely yellow wallpaper and bedding. On either side of the ornate fireplace are built in wardrobes.


The bedroom has views over the walled garden a the back of the house.


There is another small room on the ground floor: the garden room. The walls are decorated in the IMAGINARIUM wallpaper by Mind the Gap and on the floor lies a patterned tilework. It’s a lovely moody spaace, and the door leads you straight to the garden.


The maisonette home is mainly located on the ground floor and the lower ground floor of the townhouse. There is only one room when you go up the stairs to the first floor, and that is one of the bathrooms which you will see later.

The hallway has an aged flagstone floor, and the walls are painted cheerful pastel blue.


Moving to the lower ground floor, we find a beautiful kitchen and dining room. Here, you can see the work of James Adams. He applied gold leaf to the cornicing and mixed gold paint with olive green for the walls.

For a complete green effect, they also painted the kitchen cabinets green, which are combined with granite worktops and a ceramic double sink. The stove sits in the original fireplace that is surrounded by Bath stone with inset gold-painted square tiles. 


Intricate plasterwork, a grapevine complete with burgeoning grapes, wraps its way around the top of the room.


The second bedroom is decorated with Designer’s Guild Giordano Segreto wallpaper.


Glass double doors lead to an en-suite library room with a glass room.


The house has two “vaults,” one is now used as a guest bedroom.


As promised, the bathroom that is located on the first floor. It’s a bold room with red walls and an intricate mosaic-tiled floor.


The walled garden is landscaped into a series of tiers, surrounded by deep beds of herbaceous planting. A paved terrace at the top of the garden has a wonderful pergola and acts as an informal alfresco dining area.
