We redesigned, extended and refurbished this country cottage to create a timeless, light filled, family home.

It was important that there was continuity between the old stone cottage and its new extension so we used simple panelling around the fireplace that was echoed in the kitchen and children’s bedrooms.

I wanted the kitchen and living area to be a comfortable and warm space for entertaining and evenings. This was achieved through the use of smoked and oiled oak counter tops, a feature stone wall and large oak beams that bring an understated country feel to the home.

We mixed natural materials including stone, marble, sea grass, wool and linen with vintage and antique elements.
