An old refectory table sits in this impressive dining room with mismatched dining chairs creating a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. A colourful chandelier sits above the table adding understated elegance.
In order to mix old and new, the owners chose to offset period windows with modern sofas. An imposing stone fireplace is balanced out with a neutral carpet and coffee table, made from a butchers block.
An eclectic touch is added in the kitchen with a chunky wooden butcher block acting as a kitchen island. Floating shelves act as practical storage and as a perfect place to show off decorative tableware and crockery.
For butchers blocks, try Kit Stone, and get these floating shelves from IKEA.
This French-inspired guest bedroom is kept simple, with accents of navy blue in the soft furnishings. The main focus lies above the headboard, with a simple photograph in an ornate frame facing an elaborate and ornate glass chandelier.
A black and white bedroom scheme compliments the beautiful wooden features, like the door panelling and the exposed beams. Simple white bedlinen keeps the room light and airy, while a decorative chandelier adds interest.
A slipper bath is a focal point in this bathroom. It’s complimented by neutral mosaic tiles, and metal lettering around the top of the room. Statement ladder storage keeps the look contemporary.
For ladder storage like this, go to Orchid. For a similar bath, head to BC Designs.
