Take a look around this cosy country kitchen

The owners bought this period home on the Isle of Wight 13 years ago. ‘We fell for its large rooms, traditional features, 1970s arches and Esse range cooker.’ The kitchen area is north facing so it doesn’t get any sun, plus the original walls and floor tiles were quite dark and gloomy. ‘We wanted to make the design features from various eras work together to create a homely kitchen-diner with a snug next door. We replaced the dated orange floor tiles with slate, added tounge-and-groove panels and panited the walls pale cream.’
