This traditional 19th-century timber-clad Sussex cottage has been reconfigured and redecorated to create a stylish family home. It was thought to have originally provided stabling and accommodation for soldiers during the Napoleonic Wars.
2/10 Entrance hallway
3/10 Living room
Three rooms were knocked into one large living room that stretches from the front of the cottage to the back. Floral and checked fabrics add to the country look while a colourful picture adds a modern twist.
4/10 Living room sofa
In the back part of the living room, where lights floods through the French doors that back on to the garden, vintage finds are combined with painted furniture to create a comfortable and relaxed feel.
6/10 Kitchen cooker
7/10 Dining room
8/10 Main bedroom
A Juliet balcony was built on to the main bedroom so that the French windows could be flung open in the summer. A palette of duck egg and pink combines with faded floral fabrics to create a pretty country scheme.
