The communal living space promoted comfort with country details. The log fire creates a communal gathering point in the living space, which will encourage socialization. The paneling to the wall makes is simple and sophisticated and allows for artwork.  All the furnishing to be natural linens, wool, faux leathers and velvets providing the users with comfort and the sense of home.

 

The kitchen is traditionally ‘country’ with a shaker style kitchen unit and oak worktop. Rustic oak shelves provide space for storage and gives a homely feel to the kitchen. The flagstone flooring gives the feeling of a traditional farmhouse all adding the overall country feel to the design.
