The exterior of this holiday retreat in Kent is painted in Dulux's Silver Grey.
2/7 Living room window
An original 1930s sofa sits in the bay window of the living room. The owners kept lots of the antique furniture that was in the house before they renovated it. The antique screen also dates back to the 1930s.
3/7 Living room
The owners exposed some of the orginal brickwork in the living room and used it to create a feature wall.
An old range dating back to the 1730s was uncovered and restored in the kitchen.
The units are Appleby by Magnet. For a similar table try An Angel At My Table and for chairs try Bells of Suffolk. The cornishware is original, for similar try TG Green & Co.
Antique furniture mixed with vintage French linens and fabrics help create a rustic feel in the bedroom.
The antique roll top bath was re-enamelled to give the bathroom a traditional, rustic feel.
7/7 Sunny terrace
From the terrace at the back of the house there are lovely views of the channel.
