A converted net loft in Mousehole, Cornwall, built in the 1800s on 17th-century foundations. The house has 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms on the ground floor, a living room and kitchen on the first floor, plus an adjoining self-contained, one-bedroom holiday let flat.
The ceilings were removed to reveal the A-framed beams. The furniture, lights and objects, most of which the owner has collected on his travels, mix well with new pieces made from scrap materials and a tried-and-tested paint method – layering a light shade over a dark shade and sanded through, give it a lovely patina.
Farrow & Ball
Throughout the house, the flooring is made of scaffolding boards washed with white spirit and sealed with wax oil. Quirky finds continue into the bathroom – the ampersand is from an old cricket scoreboard, while the tea holder light is from Spain.
