A Cottage Renovation Delight


I discovered this stunning renovation via The Style Files and was immediately smitten by how the architects transformed this 1904 farmhouse into a modern and stylish home, yet cleverly retained the original cottage feel.

Elements I adore:
  • Painted white floorboards
  • Black and white, mixed with neutral shades
  • French doors opening on to an outdoor entertaining area, allowing lots of light into the living and dining area
  • Chandelier-style light fitting in the dining room
  • Kitchen cupboards (!)
  • Blackboard in the kitchen
  • Hand basin faucet in the bathroom
  • Vintage bedside table
  • Wrought-iron bed frames
What is your favourite element?

Check out the rest of the amazing transformation {see the full project}.
