1/12 Converted church entrance
2/12 Dining room with stained glass windows

3/12 Berry dining room
The dining room furniture and colour scheme reflects the owners choice to complement the period character of the church rather than injecting it with contemporary style.

4/12 Cosy sitting room
A bespoke pulpit in the living room is a definite nod to the house's religious origins, and adds interest and character to the room. Buttoned leather sofas and armchairs keep the mood traditional, yet cosy.
The mirror is from Mallglade Antiques.
5/12 Rustic country kitchen
A glamorous chandelier contrasts with the country style cabinetry and the original wood vaulted ceiling in this kitchen.
6/12 Kitchen splashback
Lettering on the tiled splashback declares and embraces the original identity of the church. A black range cooker, white and timber cabinetry, and two different hues of stone worktops create a truly eclectic feel in this kitchen.

The regal purple bedlinen adds to the sense of grandeur in this expansive bedroom.
