“Care was taken during the renovation to reuse anything that could be and other materials were locally sourced. The roof is original old Cotswold tiles, the porch is reclaimed oak” said the owners of this marvelous cottage. The leftovers from the porch are now lamps in the house.
Old barn doors were cut down and repurposed as kitchen cabinet doors. Corrugated metal makes a unique focal wall and a pair of old fire buckets turned pendant lights.
It’s actually difficult to decide which piece is our favorite in this vintage paradise. But what we know is that we completely fell in love with all the little details including in this old crate for storing kitchen essentials.
Don’t you love this sofa? Yes, even the sofa got a new lease on life, since it was found at the local dump.
Etched glass doors spill out onto the gardens, which is the perfect place for a spot of tea or a bottle of wine while admiring the nature that surrounds this fascinating village.
Everything in this bedroom is unique starting with the pulley system that stands in for a closet. And, of course, the cartwheel above the bed that dates back to the industrial revolution!
The bathtub was found in a bush, hauled home and given a bright red paint job. Isn’t this amazing?
