Where: Hunters Down, Huntingdon, Cambridge.
What: Exclusive refurbishment of private residences.
Purpose: To create an environment that would provide a level of comfort synonymous with homeliness.
Creating Comfort: Premier care provider Excelcare hired Shackletons to develop a new interior look that would provide homely, comfortable, and modern accommodation for private residents.
The brief for this exclusive refurbishment was to create an environment that provided a level of comfort synonymous with homeliness whilst supporting the variety of care given, such as nursing, dementia nursing, residential and palliative care.
Five luxury suites, quiet rooms, family meeting room and a library have all benefitted from a Shackletons makeover.
Soft cream fabrics with muted purples and greens have been used against more traditional, simply styled furniture in quieter rooms; whilst in the library tartans and checks in caramels and browns work with high back seating and occasional furniture to create a sophisticated reading space.
Charlotte Spirito-Edwards of Excelcare said: “Shackletons helped translate our brief by developing a stimulating environment that ensures the transition to care and ongoing care within Hunters Down is as easy as possible.
“We believe maximum comfort, convenience and stimulation have been achieved for the people who live here – it’s as individual as the care provided. Once again, many thanks for your support”
