A charming bed and breakfast has opened for business In the English city of Bath, best known for its ancient Roman spas. I spotted a photograph of the stately space on the instagram feed of @sixsevensix and am so glad I investigated further. Berdoulat & Breakfast consists of two suites in the home of architect Patrick Williams, his wife, Neri, and their daughter, Wren. The building, designed by famous architect John Wood the Elder in 1748, also houses Patrick’s business, Berdoulat Architectural Design. The property was in shambles when the couple purchased it, but has since been restored to its original grandeur (albeit with a modern twist). Focused on preservation, Patrick’s rooms retain their historic integrity without compromising livability. My favorite room has to be the library (pictured below), brimming with the distinctive orange of classic Penguin paperbacks. Have you ever been to Bath…? I hope to someday pay the Williams a visit!
