Print of the Week: Bourdon House | Melissa Colson

Originally published June 8, 2015

If there was ever a structure that possessed quintessentially British style, it would be Bourdon House on London's Davies Street. Formerly the residence of the Duke of Westminster, this Georgian mansion is now the retail home for luxury menswear company, Alfred Dunhill.

Built in 1720, the home's architectural details feature an elegant red and black brick façade, with an outdoor courtyard bordered by a stately wrought iron fence.

Restrained refinement meets modern elegance at Bourdon House where clients are offered bespoke tailoring and the finest accessories and products. It also boasts a spa, barber, private screening room, Humidor cigar keep room, cellar bar, and restaurant.

Rated as one of the ten best shops in the world, to visit Dunhill's Bourdon House is an experience to say the least. It's no surprise that over the years Dunhill's clientele has included British royalty, celebrities, and politicians from Coco Chanel to Winston Churchill.

This week's Print of the Week, Bourdon House, is a pen and ink print made from my original. This illustration first appeared in Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report and was also featured by Dunhill on merchandise swing tickets and promotional booklets.

Bourdon House is available as a 5x7 or an 8x10 print here
