"The Stafford, in St James, London is an ongoing refurbishment for Rosendale Design, which started with the redesign of The Game Bird restaurant (completed in 2017). The success here led to the hotel entrusting Rosendale Design with the full redesign of its main house and bedrooms. Debuting later this year, The Park View Suite is a new maisonette suite at The Stafford with views towards the London Eye and Parliament, which makes great viewing for the New Year’s Eve fireworks. The art selected throughout the hotel is to reflect the hotel’s close proximity to Green Park. Many floral prints and landscape paintings were selected to highlight this fact. Within the rooms all fixed furniture, headboards, the wardrobes, desks and vanity units are all made bespoke, ensuring there are one-off pieces and project-specific. Rosendale boasts a great network of artists, artisans and cabinet makers to compliment any project.

Rosendale Design additionally redesigned The American Bar (May 2018), which belongs to the great tradition of the American cocktail bars that became renowned during the 1920s and 30s, and remains one of the longest surviving American bars in London. The memorabilia adorning The American Bar have all been gifted to the hotel by its distinguished patrons. Rosendale Design wanted to celebrate this aspect of the design when reimagining the interiors. The American Bar sits in what were once stables and can be directly accessed through The Stafford’s covered patio at the end of Blue Ball Yard, leading from an archway off St James’s Street."
