Arts & Crafts Cottage

In combination with our joinery partner we designed the kitchen, library, cloakroom cupboards and other architectural joinery within the house, before moving onto the wider interior design and decoration. Paying tribute to the houses Arts and Crafts roots, inspiration was drawn in particular from the late 19th century aesthetic movement through to iconic mid-century modern designers. We designed or sourced all fabrics, upholstery, art and furniture.

Surrounded by the rural Sussex countryside with beautiful gardens and trees, the house has a relaxed atmosphere. This provided inspiration, and is reflected in the use of vivid colour, pattern and contemporary crafted texture. The mood is designed to be comfortable, whilst providing visual richness.
