The interior

The interiors of Fulford Place were designed using pre-fabricated components that could be installed by local labourers to create an ornate hand-crafted appearance. The decorative plaster of the salon was sourced from catalogues to create an appropriate sense of style without the costly necessity of importing foreign plasterers.

Certain highlights such as the grand hall fireplace contain custom features, such as the hand-carved mantle bearing George Fulford 1’s motto for his house, “Here rest, and call content thy home.”

The second floor was a centre for the family’s activities, connecting five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a dressing room and a sitting room. At the western end of the hall, a quiet reading and sewing nook overlooked a spacious balcony and the formal gardens.

Crimson and gold stencilled walls provided the perfect backdrop for the collection of landscape paintings and family portraits.
