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.
Natural coir carpet, its edges bound by linen, complements the original encaustic tiles in the hallway.
The coir carpet is from Crucial Trading.
