Found and Fine: A Curated Stay At 8 Holland Street Townhouse, Bath

July 31, 2023

This just in: 8 Holland Street Townhouse, the latest “interiors playground” to be dreamt up and kitted out by Tobias Vernon, founder of the London gallery and design store of the same name. The three-bedroom guesthouse is situated just moments from the city’s Royal Crescent in a four-story Georgian townhouse on Brock Street, and it’s a masterclass in the creation of vintage vignettes.

Collectively, the rooms here—which are filled with an ever-evolving collection of art, decorative objects, ceramics, textiles, and furniture—feel much more like an enviable home than a hotel. This is largely thanks to Tobias’s eclectic gathering of styles, eras, and price points, what he calls “found and fine pieces”. It’s an inimitable style he has honed since his student days in Cambridge, when he would adorn his student digs with artwork borrowed from the Kettle’s Yard collection.

Let’s take a look around:
