Quintessentially English

Posted on Thu, 26 Jan 2023 by midcenturyjo

“We wanted the interiors to be cosy and eclectic and to be sympathetic to the age of the cottage. We mixed old with new and sourced a lot of the antiques in auctions from around the UK. The cottage is a little jewel box, with each room a different colour scheme full of patterns and layers. The cottage is quirky with uneven old cob walls and sloping ancient flagstone floors and we wanted the interiors to be in harmony with this.”

Quintessentially English with its pattern mix and match, embrace of colour and antique pieces and although this home is a 17th Century cottage in Devon the designer Elizabeth Hay is actually Singapore based.

Earthy eclectic

“Hidden in the canyon of Irvine, California, this 10,000 square foot home is full of Spanish influences. With architectural foundations like beautiful archways and organic characteristics, our team brought a vision to life that is uniquely exquisite. As a result, you’ll see high ceilings, geometric shapes, plaster throughout, and luxury goods for an eloquent look. With an intentional design approach that is functional and aristocratic, our design encompasses natural light and a trendy color palette.”

A neutral nirvana with an emphasis on natural materials and texture with its restrained colour palette. Earthy Eclectic by Orange County based Lindye Galloway.
