Henry Holland.  Brooks’s Club, c. 1776.  

“Of the three great Regency clubs which still survive Brooks’s has probably the most elegant building. In deliberate contrast to the Adam style of Boodle’s, which stands opposite in St. James Street, the architect, Henry Holland, designed what is in effect a small country house in London–and a country house very much in the particular style which the Whig aristocracy made their own.”  –Anthony LeJeune, The Gentlemen’s Clubs of London, 1979

The company responsible for the paint job of the hall shown here used spectrometric analysis to determine the original color, which they then duplicated.
