Tinsmith’s House is the latest previously light-industrial building that we have inhabited as a home. It is our only B&B.
We have had long and successful careers working in commercial design and contemporary art and having reached a certain age found that we were looking for a distinct change in direction, after moving from central London to Aylsham, North Norfolk. With its flexible layout from its former industrial heritage, Tinsmith’s House seemed to offer the best kind of potential for B&B accommodation in an idiosyncratic, hand-built package.
Tinsmith’s is just big enough for us to continue to house a small design studio and have our collections of objects and contemporary art installed throughout the house. We are constantly renewing our interests in our chosen fields of art and design and this is reflected in the interior of Tinsmith’s House. Our strange collection of objects and art has found a new coherence around the house and it is this combination of old and new, designer baubles along side low-grade junk, mixed with antiques that sits so well within Tinsmith’s hand-crafted feel.
