2/6 Living room
A woodburning stove creates the ideal atmosphere for reading and relaxing. A mixture of finishes - from brick, to wood and leather - blend beautifully to form this rustic country space.
A striped rug, soft blue walls and an antique console table all combine to create a warm and inviting entrance hall. Stuffed owls make great conversation pieces.

Soft slate green cabinetry looks fresh in this light kitchen-diner and combine well with wooden worktops and slate floor tiles.
The rustic brickwork and beams make a lovely backdrop for the bed in this country bedroom. A floral throw and cushions add a pretty and elegant touch.
Subtle shades of lilac give this bathroom a feminine look. White candles and a lantern create a peaceful and tranquil mood.
