I am in love with this home designed by Caroline Holdaway. Traditional with colour and pattern makes it so warm and inviting. (Photos: Simon Brown)
This property originally formed part of a 16thC coaching inn. It is a flat fronted stone village house with cross mullion windows on the edge of the Cotswolds. The sole purpose of this gloriously neat and perfectly proportioned house was to stand as a hunting box for my clients. We removed a dividing wall downstairs opening up an airy space for socializing yet retaining it’s cosy appeal for intimate fireside evenings. Reclaimed timber floors and show stopping Raku fired floor tiles give charm in bucket loads to the kitchen and breakfast room. We purchased some perfectly figured reclaimed elm from which we crafted the kitchen and found some papier mache refracted glass cinema lights that illuminate the kitchen work surfaces. Carefully sourced antiques and client art work made this property a delight to work on.
Lovely. I adore that kitchen.
