A cozy cottage
Originally built in 1710, this cottage surrounded by green hills and pastures is located in the west of England.
Despite the rich history of the cottage (which is located in the Cotswold area), many modern elements have been incorporated to make it fully functional and livable.
Designer Caroline Hideaway has renovated and decorated this ancestral cottage that needed a lot of love! It's her cozy home!
Come see the interior; it's absolutely lovely!
The decoration is beautiful !
The challenge of the designer was to decorate and restore the cottage while keeping its original style! It's not always an easy to do!
Stepping into the English cottage is like stepping back in time. Come discover the interior!
Original elements of the home, such as the stone walls, hold onto the cottage’s historical roots. The antique furniture pays homage to the cottage’s past. Caroline opted for a bright purple armchair with matching ottoman, as well as a patterned chair. Visitors can chat while staying warm by the woodstove.
The photo taken in the opposite direction gives you a complete idea of the living room and the living space. Caroline went for another bright pop of color with a light blue velvet antique sofa. Wooden beams adorn the ceiling, and a vintage door provides access to the home’s dining room.
The small dining table is made of reclaimed wood, and it is surrounded by three mismatching chairs, as well as a small bench on one side. The ceiling of the dining room is open on the first floor of the cottage which gives a lot of natural light to the room.
The cottage’s kitchen is the perfect combination of vintage and contemporary. The walls have been painted a stark white, making the kitchen bright and airy, and the unfinished wooden floors retain a piece of the cottage’s centuries-old heritage.
The backsplash has been made with subway tiles. A small bench with a table is the perfect space to prepare meals.
The kitchen, again
A deep-basin farmhouse sink sits nestled in between gorgeous marble countertops. Rustic wood was used to create exposed shelving for pots, pans, and dishware. It’s simple elements such as these that flood the cottage with charm.
The adorable cottage has two spacious bedrooms. Both rooms have antique furniture, unique light fixtures and simple décor. When a home’s architecture has so much character, it essentially speaks for itself and doesn’t require much decorating.
The bathroom is probably one of the most elegant rooms in the house. The room, surrounded by white wood paneling, provides calm and relaxation; we are far from the avocado green which covered the walls before.
The bathroom also boasts a luxurious deep soaking tub. We light some candles and relax!
The tiny cottage has a courtyard with a lovely landscaping. This is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning.
