Rustic country style is everywhere, even before you step inside. A red-painted door suits the fiery red brick exterior perfectly.
Get the look: Create your own culinary wreath to bring rustic charm to your front door.
A pumpkin scarecrow is propped up on the exterior window, setting the scene for Halloween.
The dining table has been made out of an old door and a wooden bench has barrels of rustic charm. A white table runner, seat covers and cushions lighten up the otherwise dark scheme, while matching candlesticks and vintage accessories add character. A large stone bowl makes a perfect centrepiece to fill with seasonal items, or fruit and flowers all year round.
Dressed for Halloween, this Shaker-style dresser is lined with carved pumpkins and Halloween accessories.
The fire surround in this kitchen is painted duck-egg blue to create a striking focal point around the country-style range cooker. White walls allow the original beams to take centre stage, while a light-wood butcher's block keeps the space light, as well providing an extra surface for baking.
The patchwork cover on the bed continues the rustic country-cottage look and adds a splash of colour to the white walls and wooden beams. White painted floorboards are perfect for this style while vintage accessories add the perfect finishing touch to this bedroom.
The roll-top bath was in the cottage when the family moved in and was painted in a soft grey to smarten it up. The wooden beams, the American and vintage homespun fabrics, and the rustic accessories all help to create a cosy and relaxing scheme.
Get the look: For a soft grey paint shade, try Smoked Trout by Farrow & Ball.
American and vintage homespun fabrics are used to cover the armchair and create a cosy reading spot by the fireplace in this bedroom. The exposed brick of the back wall adds warmth and character to the scheme.
