Be inspired by the cosy Hertfordshire cottage

Living room

With careful and considerate planning and decorating, this Hertforshire cottage was restored to its former glory by the current owners, showing off its mix of exotic finds and period features. 



A tiger-spotted yellow orchid and a pair of traditional confit pots stand on a rustic driftwood wine rack between the kitchen and the living room. 


Dining room

In the Mediterranean-inspired dining room a huge mirror stands at one end of the antique table. The owners replaced the original table with a Spanish-style design, and added an olive tree to the room. 



This owners designed this shaker-style kitchen themselves, and chose to keep the quarry-tiled floor and old flue in the scheme. 


Kitchen storage

Capitalising on the quirky architecture of the house, the 3 shelves between the chimney breast and the door frame, display a few carefully chosen pieces of rustic kitchenalia. 



The throw and floor-standing reading lights in the bedroom are a contrast of cosy and contemporary design.



The bathroom has a country look with modern details such as the column taps and a round, surface-mounted basin.
