The semi-detached Edwardian cottage is on the edge of a pretty market town and has views over open fields at the back.
2/10 Living room
An elegant palette of greys and charcoals combines with vintage finds to create a French stately home feel in the living room. A patterned wallpaper creates a striking feature wall, while stripped wooden floors and a sisal rug add a natural touch and bring extra warmth.
3/10 Sofa living room
In the living room, painted walls and a plain sofa complement the patterns of the curtains, armchair fabric and cushions, and bring a sense of calm. Period style lighting adds extra character.
Vintage finds and new buys create a mix and match look. A pretty wrought iron daybed, distressed coffee table and charcoal toned cushions enhance the elegant scheme.
5/10 Dining room
Splashes of red and warm wood create a festive feel in the dining room. Metal floorlamps add an industrial edge to the country scheme.
6/10 Kitchen/dining room seating area
A wicker sofa, layered up with festive red and white cushions, offers a
handy place to relax in the open plan kitchen/dining area. The large
painted dresser is a key country ingredient and provides plenty of storage.
Rustic wooden and painted units are combined in the kitchen and, along with the butlers sink and a framed French poster, create a cosy period feel.
8/10 Main bedroom
Ornate wallpaper, an iron bedstead and toile de Jouy quilt play to the French theme in the main bedroom, while the palette of soft colours adds to the relaxing, boudoir feel.
9/10 Guest bedroom
A prairie-style scheme is created in the guest bedroom with cool green shades, distressed furniture and accent patchwork and gingham fabrics.
A black-and-white tile splashback adds wow factor behind the roll-top bath and is teamed with a painted chest of drawers and vintage-style accessories to create an individual look.
