This traditional two-up two-down worker's cottage has been brought to life with carefully restored original features, floral prints and antique finds.
2/8 Floral print living room sofa
The owner of this home has mixed painted wooden furniture and floral fabrics in the living room for timeless shabby-chic style. A collection of vintage mirrors above the eye-catching rose-print sofa is a modern take on a traditional look.
3/8 Living room fireplace
A woodburning stove in the large fireplace creates a cosy atmosphere in the living room. Exposed brickwork is an original feature of this worker's cottage.
4/8 Cosy dining room
5/8 Yellow painted kitchen
6/8 Bedroom with antique bed
Almost everything in the house is from a flea market or antiques fair, including this imposing bed, which was found at the Ardingly International Antiques Fair.
7/8 Traditional bedroom fireplace
Accessories such as the fire screen and upholstered mannequin create an authentic vintage vibe in the bedroom. A fitted cupboard in the alcove is painted in a soft taupe to match the painted bed.
