Renovation of a pretty 16th century cotswold cottage in a picturesque conservation village. The cottage comprised of small rooms all with open stone walls, which made the interior extremely dark and dated. With severe damp issues and having been empty for a number of years the pretty cottage in its idylic setting was crying out for some TLC. The whole interior was gutted, and rooms were knocked through to create larger more open plan interior spaces. Wonderful old fireplaces were revealed which had once been covered over. A fresh, new, light interior scheme was created, with gorgeous farrow and ball colour schemes. Making features of the beautiful stone fireplaces and leaving some exposed stone was important, but allowing stone elements to become features rather than the dominate the interior like it did beforehand. Gorgeous natural colours and materials were used to create a contemporary yet pretty, cottage style interior. A new shaker style hand made and hand painted kitchen & utility with integral appliances and lots of storage. A new handmade oak and glass staircase replaced a 60's alluminium spiral staircase and new hardwood painted windows replaced 60's alluminium windows. John Cullen lighting through out. A now pretty, naturally light, inviting home for our clients to enjoy.
