Sanderson launched their ‘Traveller’ range of fabrics and wallpapers in early 2015, they chose The
Palacio as the location in which to photograph their popular Spring collection.
The main living spaces within The Palacio are very generously proportioned, but the way they have been decorated and furnished makes them feel incredibly welcoming and “homely”. Whilst the overall feeling is one of opulence and grandeur, this is never at the cost of comfort.
