Introducing ‘Monmouth Place’

Our fourth and final apartment ‘Monmouth Place’ is newly on the holiday let/Airbnb market, and is nestled in the centre of the lovely city of Bath, Somerset





Our inspiration came from modern Scandinavian design, illustrative patterns and organic natural forms. Framed illustrations, paintings and interesting wallpaper patterns from the likes of Marimekko and Fine Little Day can be found throughout the apartment, giving it a playful feel. While the plants, flowers and use of wood ground the space, making it feel warm and inviting.








You can find all four apartments on Airbnb:

Monmouth Place apartment is housed on the ground floor of a typical Georgian town house in the city centre just ten minutes walk from The Royal Crescent.

And that wraps up our project in Bath! We really hope you’ve enjoyed the journey on this blog, our Facebook page and Instagram and really appreciate all the love and support everyone has been giving us on these platforms. We can’t wait to show you more what we’ve been up to!

Introducing ‘Willoughby’

Our third apartment ‘Willoughby’ is newly on the holiday let/Airbnb market, and is nestled in the centre of the lovely city of Bath, Somerset





Our inspiration came from a mixture of things at no 1 Royal Crescent. Using the bird motifs and patterns seen throughout the building, we managed to source the beautiful wallpaper from Little Greene in the living room. We also took inspiration from traditional homes and used a colour palette in keeping with the Georgian sensibilities.  We wanted to give this apartment a subtle twist, and achieved this through adding playful details like the patterned tiles and fresh grey colour in the Bathroom, and modern elements throughout the kitchen.

Introducing ‘Vesta’

Our second apartment ‘Vesta’ is newly on the holiday let/Airbnb market, and is nestled in the centre of the lovely city of Bath, Somerset.






Our inspiration came from no 1 Royal Crescent, with its beautiful curiosity cabinets in the ‘Gentlemens Retreat’ room. We were also influenced by the ‘Ladies Bedroom’, using the bird motif on the four poster bed and the traditional bedding as inspiration for the wallpaper used in the living area of Vesta.

Introducing ‘Osric’

…Come stay a while?

3 months of head-down grafting at Stark & Goodwin HQ and we are FINALLY ready to show you the first of our apartments heading for the Holiday Let/ Airbnb market in the wonderful English City of Bath!






Our inspiration came from architectural sketches and forms. The space has a monochrome colour palette highlighted with mixed metal and shots of strong colour and design.

Blog Birthday!

So it turns out today is our Blog’s First Birthday (if that’s a thing?) A year ago today (On Back to the Future Day no less, 21st Oct 2015) we scribed our first post; an introduction; the beginning; day dot; the beginning of our journey; the start of Stark & Goodwin. Hitting this milestone has inevitably made us look back at the events of the past year and take stock..
The time has gone in a flash. But at the same time some things have been painfully slow to learn. We now have a distinct admiration for small business owners and solopreneurs. Its a tough existence, a steep learning curve and Megan and I have to wear a lot of different hats on a daily basis to keep all aspects of the business ticking along.

It still feels like early days but we are dead proud of ourselves for taking that leap a year ago. Its a timely milestone with us on the cusp of completing our first major project together with some interesting projects in the timeline…

We still have a long way to go but we are already so far from where we used to be and we can hold our heads up high about that… And the main thing? I think I like where we are heading… Its a rare thing when a career and a passion come together. #careergoals #luckybitches #stillworkinghard #herestothenextmilestone
