Our client wanted to make the most of the natural features in the cottage but with comfort in mind – it needed to be fit for use in the 21st Century.
It was our mission to dress the rooms with a mix of found pieces as well as contemporary furniture that would give character to the property but would last the test of time. With outings to antique shops and dealers we were able to find pieces that fitted in with the heritage of the property and mixed well with modern contemporary pieces. With the brief in mind it was a lovely surprise to find an old stairwell behind some redundant built in cupboards in the snug. The stone was cleaned up and repointed and the little window cleared of years of cobwebs. The double height ceiling was the perfect place to hang a mirrored pendant from Pooky lights and then put a lovely writing desk in the space for home working. The inglenook fireplace had been blocked up, probably because it was draughty, so we installed a Clearview wood burning stove so that the family could hunker down with a lit fire and watch TV on the modular sofa.
