‘Shoreditch buzz’ inspires new Birmingham boutique project


Birmingham has welcomed a new boutique hotel to the region as Saint Paul’s House opened its doors this month.

The new 34-bed boutique hotel is the conversion of a former rope factory and is aiming to bring the ‘buzz of Shoreditch’, London’s creative scene, to the area.

The property has taken inspiration from its historic past as the basis for its new look.

Its location in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter has also influenced the interior design, alongside artistic features throughout such as single lightbulbs hanging from brightly coloured rope in the lobby and open brick walls.

The bedrooms boast grey-wood panelled walls to give a modern feel and complemented by design touches such as chequered throws and cushions.

The rooms are also peppered with images of the local city, taken by photographer Ross Dukes.

Alongside the 34 bedrooms, Saint Paul’s House is also home to an all-day ding restaurant.

The new boutique is the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Adrian and Sharon Harvey, and marks the second property for the creative duo, who also own the Royal Hotel in High Street in Sutton Coldfield.

They were also responsible for renovating the Village Inn in Moseley.

Saint Paul’s House is also home to an all-day dining restaurant, plus space to hold meetings and events.
