Elegant French-style furniture is given an English country twist with ginghams and florals. The neutral colour used throughout the clashing patterns creates a relaxing country living room. Centred in the room is a trunk the owners bought from an antiques store, which adds to the many vintage trinkets they have scattered throughout the home.

The seating is available from Laura Ashley.

A farmhouse table lined with spotted material and Windsor chairs add to the rustic feel, complimenting the adjoining country kitchen. A rustic green storage unit showcases retro trinkets in an organised way.

The table cloth is from Dunelm Mill.

range cooker in cream is the perfect accessory for the country kitchen and hand-painted wooden units ensure the colour combination is spot on. Floral tea towels and pale pink accessories are placed throughout. The quirky word tiling outlines some favourite British afternoon treats.

The tiles are available from Marlborough Tiles and the tea towel is available from Cath Kidston.

Mismatched florals create a comfortable, informal air in the guest bedroom. Plain walls with delicate lamps create a relaxed atmosphere. The pale wood used throughout the rooms creates a combination of a country-style and elegant look.

The curtain fabric is by Cath Kidston and the bedspread is by Au Maison.

A large conservatory creates a light-filled space and soft pastel and gingham sofas continue the clashing pattern theme. The open-plan design gives a great view of the garden and combines the kitchen with the dining area - perfect for when the owners are playing hosts to guests for dinner.

Malbrook can provide a conservatory like this.

The owners have made use of their lovely garden by dividing the space into separate zones for relaxing, eating, growing fruit and vegetables and keeping bees.

The pretty summerhouse brings a touch of the elegance from inside the home, outside into the garden. Located at the back of the property, it makes for the perfect retreat, with wicker chairs and patterned bunting inside completing the finishing touch.

The summerhouse is by Lugarde.
