The whole India Hicks/Ralph Lauren colour palette is something that keeps popping to mind and the stripes too…there will be stripes!
Now…here are some shots I took of the cottage on Sunday…
The cottage is teeny and hasn’t had anyone living in it for over 7 years…LOTS of cobwebs and spiders about and that “I haven’t been used for a long time” smell to it. This shot is the master bedroom. There are two bedrooms and this is the brightest of them. That bush out the window will be going which will let in LOADS more light.
This shot is the hallway, looking out of the living room to the front door, which is a French door.
That dark lump up the floor is a dead bird which I had to scoop up…I know!
Nothing in this house is straight, as you can see from the angle the door is on. Those heavy shelves have to say, as do a lot of things as the client is the caretaker of the cottage, not the owner. Otherwise the place would be getting re plastered, re carpeted etc. So I have my work cut out for me! Love the stripe carpet!
Here is the dining room. The doors there were French doors that were broken…I think I am going to look for them in the old barn out the back. The light this room is missing out on because of these heavy doors is a shame.
The kitchen. It has new blackwood cabinets which is a plus, and bead board, so there is some hope. The ceiling height is just above my head…and I am only small.
The other side of the kitchen with its old wood burning stove.
Mission Impossible…I don’t think so. Well I hope not.
I will keep you updated as it goes on.
Wish me luck =0)
