In its varied history, Basildon Park has served 150 years as a grand family home, a period as a convalescent hospital in World War 1, an army barracks in World War 2, and even survived an attempt to be dismantled and rebuilt brick-by-brick in America.

This warm neutral was used on the walls of the Staircase Hall, designed to feel more like a sitting room than a cold corridor.
