How to Achieve Hotel Style at Home
Watergate Bay Hotel have been proud owners of Aspace Children’s Furniture for over 10 years now. Set on the rugged Cornish coastline with sea views that can make even the least adventurous of folk want to go for a paddle, the hotel has only the best in contemporary coastal comfort.
Our children’s beds deck out the family suites, giving little ones a full-sized, spacious place to sleep after active days in the surf. But it’s not just our beautiful bunk beds that stand out, all of the styling at Watergate Bay Hotel has been designed with an aim of making guests feel welcome and at home.
Naturally we jumped at the opportunity to quiz Watergate on exactly how they managed to create spaces that will always fit your mood, whether you're after a snooze spot, social hub or hideaway.
Aspace Children's Beds in Watergate Bay Hotel
The décor throughout the hotel is beautiful. Can you tell us about your design process?
“We worked closely with Household, a London based design consultancy specialising in guest experience through interior design. They chose a colour palette based on the tones of the natural landscape surrounding the hotel – oyster grey, porcelain and misty blue – so the living spaces seamlessly merge with the outdoors.”
How do you create your signature contemporary Cornish look?
“We tried to source as many items as locally as possible to keep our spaces authentic. We’ve used rustic floorboards, natural slate and Cornish granite cobbles. Even our lighting has a marine influence with fixtures in brass and copper and driftwood lamps coming together.”

What do you look for in a supplier?
“Just like the coastline, our spaces can really be exposed to the elements. We have surfers coming in after a session in the surf, excitable families who’ve been on the beach and even wet pawed dogs, so pieces which can withstand a bit of wear are a must for us. Our Aspace children’s bunk beds have seen thousands of little ones come and go. We have guests staying at the hotel all year round, so we need to know we have furniture we can rely on.”
Your guests seem to love your styling. What’s the item that draws the most attention?
Our guest often comment on our wall paper, which we was made exclusively for Watergate Bay, and our throws which add a pop of colour to the bedrooms. These, along with the stripped cushions, can be bought from the online shop.
