An old refectory table sits in this impressive dining room with mismatched dining chairs creating a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. A colourful chandelier sits above the table adding understated elegance.

In order to mix old and new, the owners chose to offset period windows with modern sofas. An imposing stone fireplace is balanced out with a neutral carpet and coffee table, made from a butchers block.
5/9 Modern country kitchen
An eclectic touch is added in the kitchen with a chunky wooden butcher block acting as a kitchen island. Floating shelves act as practical storage and as a perfect place to show off decorative tableware and crockery.
6/9 Guest bedroom
This French-inspired guest bedroom is kept simple, with accents of navy blue in the soft furnishings. The main focus lies above the headboard, with a simple photograph in an ornate frame facing an elaborate and ornate glass chandelier.

A black and white bedroom scheme compliments the beautiful wooden features, like the door panelling and the exposed beams. Simple white bedlinen keeps the room light and airy, while a decorative chandelier adds interest.

A classic nautical-inspired boy's bedroom is created using shades of blue and beach signs. Photo canvases and wooden letters help to make the space more personal.
