This Georgian house in rural Lincolnshire used to be home to a doctor’s surgery at the front – the doctor’s ‘In-Out’ sign and dispenser’s window are still attached – and a butcher’s shop, with the slaughter house in the outbuildings.
Distressed white painted furniture is teamed with red gingham and stripy ticking fabric for a charming country feel. Rustic brick flooring adds to the traditional feel. The dresser in this morning room houses stacks of books and other household paraphernalia.
The antique table and chairs are from Decorative Country Living.
A cream painted dresser matches the dining furniture in this charming room, and red accents are introduced on the chair fabric and blind to add interest and warmth to the pale scheme.
The vast six-foot square sleigh bed is the only large piece of dark wood furniture in the house, playing to the French feel that the owners wanted to achieve.
The sleigh bed is from And So To Bed.
