Beautifully tailored & fully project-managed interior design

The Cotswold Cottage

This picturesque cottage, nestled in an idyllic Cotswolds village has been extensively renovated by our clients, who sought our design services to bring the project to a beautiful conclusion and ensure that the interior is equally as charming as the property itself - together we bought their vision to life.

The conversion of the barn was our initial focus - curtains are plain linen embellished with a hammered nailhead border in order to reflect the natural beauty of the rustic exposed beams and draw attention to the striking proportions of the room. The colour palette is neutral with tones of stone, sand and charcoal. Fabrics are interesting embroideries interspersed with textured weaves. And scalloped edged furniture in greyed oak complements the warm timber flooring and recycled glass chandelier, all creating a comfortable, elegant restful space.

A contemporary glass link joins the barn to the original cottage within which we were able to create a seamless flow with each room having its own clear identity yet retaining a feeling of connection and harmony throughout. This project is characterised by an incredible attention to every finishing detail which, along with our client’s eclectic collections of art and curiosities, makes it a memorable, stylish and comfortable country home.

Stella's Story

A lifelong passion for colour, rich textures and beautiful fabrics shines through every living space I create - every design detail.

Memories of my french grandmother’s exquisite taste and a European upbringing inspired my fascination with Interior Design and my design ideas are inspired by a simple philosophy: your house should be your home - a joy to live in.

Julie's Story

A love of light, simplicity, textures and the connection between our inside and outside lives reflects how I view the world.

I believe good design cannot be separated from true living - and that good design means living with an open heart and feeling alive.

laura's Story

Having previously studied Woven Textiles at Winchester School of Art, I am now currently working towards a Diploma in Interior Design with KLC.

My own style has developed over the last few years and leans towards eclectic with influences from simple and textured mediums. I am drawn to elements of subtle colour and pattern with the addition of individual unique statement pieces that will add personality to what I always hope will create a comfortable, friendly and inviting home
