A Georgian double-fronted house in Kent, comprising living room, snug, dining room, kitchen, five bedrooms, including one en suite, a shower room and a bathroom
2/10 Living room
An open fire makes this a cosy winter retreat, while a large overmantel mirror gives the room a greater sense of space and light.
The large Persian rug was an eBay find. For a similar Georgian fireplace, try the Palladian from Chesneys
3/10 View of living room from hallway
A glass paned door and original floorboards preserve the rustic feel of this hallway. The panelling has been painted in a soft neutral to update the look.
Find original floorboards at Lassco
4/10 Dining room
A traditional extending dining table and antique chairs add a formal note to this dining room scheme, while full-length curtains and a Roman blind soften the look.
For a similar dining table, try the Vermont extending table at Barker & Stonehouse
Splashes of hot pink, stripes and florals add a pop of colour to the snug. Painted alcove cupboards make useful storage.
A butlers sink, Shaker-style cabinetry and rustic ceramics lend the kitchen a country-casual feel.
Wickes is a good source of ceramic butlers sinks
7/10 Master Bedroom
Bold accents in the wallpaper and soft furnishings add a hint of glamour to this bedroom scheme.
A delicate wrought-iron bedstead takes centre-stage in the guest bedroom.

9/10 Chair detail
A traditional tapestry cushion makes a striking statement against this rustic painted chair.

An all-white palette keeps this compact bathroom looking bright and spacious.
