In the core of the Cottage! Interior Design Render

In the core of the Cottage!

In the core of this cottage is the fire burning and spreading it's heat through the space where the Lady of the Manor is preparing dinner for her guests soon to arrive. Beef, prawn skewers and three vegs on the side. And of course a selection of good wines. The small cottage in the countryside was renovated with the original features in mind. The original space was stripped from all the internal walls to reveal a big open plan living area, and then the loft space was used for a new bedroom suite, as will be demonstrated.

Floor Plan 215.45㎡

In the loft area they needed to use the space under the rafters as best as they could.

Space Showcase 37 Renders

Bathroom

On the top of the cottage, under the rafters there is this little haven. They fitted the shower on the side where there is more roof height and then very cleverly the soaker tub next to the window. The metal they used was a deep coppery gold which was spread through the whole house.

The cottage was filled with living plants! And see how the greens was repeated on the tub and the mosaics on the wall to reflect the green even more. They went sympathetically with the original wall textures in the original cottage.

From the windows there is this wide view out on the fields beyond. A radiator was fixed for the temperature control in the cold winters.....and for summer time the windows are thrown open for lots of fresh air.

Living and Dining Room

Sitting in front of the fire and looking out into the country side! The couch was upholstered in a soft white natural leather. And Penelope found her perfect spot in front of the fire, but also with the open window right next to her!

In this view you see how the front door lets extra light into the cottage and how the stairs was kept rustic and in a corner not to eat up space, which is a commodity in this cottage. Storage is also of the essence, therefore every shelf was used to it's best, as can be seen in this side cabinet.

The table was set for the guests who will soon arrive. I wonder who will see the fault that slipped through the cracks......on the table😜😉😂. The soft candle and lamp light brings a romantic flair in the space.

Through the windows is the wonderful view out into the country!

As previously said, the need for storage in a space like this is essential....therefore the big fitted bookcase in the background. The original inglenook fireplace was cleaned and spruced up a bit, but still with the original features.

From the living room and kitchen there is this arch leading into the now scullery and mud room, but which was the smallest of kitchens in the original cottage.

This picture shows some of the beautiful moments of the space. The earthiness of pottery and the magic glow of rich gold. The small touch of the forest green wall again to take hands with all the fresh greenery.

In the kitchen, the preparations of the evening meal is in progress! On the kitchen counter are a selection of crockery and wines to entertain. On the menu is beef and three vegs, and prawn skewers. Freshly baked bread and preserves.

In this area, which was the original kitchen of the cottage, was also the original tiny bathroom! As was most of the time the custom in building a cottage to put the bathroom by the kitchen. During renovations they decided to keep the bathroom, but elevate it to a cloakroom for guests.

In this new scullery double sinks were fitted and extra storage.

Bedroom1

In the loft area of the house, under the rafters was a complete sleeping and living space fitted for the lady of the manor. In the picture here is the small area where she can make herself a warm cup of coffee!

The bed was placed in the middle of the space where the ceiling height is the best....and with windows flanking the side walls, there is enough light and fresh air to make the space livable. There was a radiator fitted for the cold winters...and of course the open windows for good ventilation.

The closet was fitted under the rafters, but with plenty storage. And yes....I also wonder if the bed still needs to be made!!! The bedding is of a good cotton and so luxurious!

There was this area done with a comfortable couch which can serve as a daybed for sleepover guests, and a television.

Coffee machine for that essential early morning steaming cup of coffee!

They fitted this daybed into the space, convenient for watching television or relax and read, but also for sleepovers when an extra bed is needed.

Cloak Room

In the cloakroom they decided to use the extra space to fit a shower for guests convenience.

    This cottage was a revelation... unexpected colours and the MOST INCREDIBLE use of space. Your whole property wowed me from the start Hester and as i mentioned the beautiful renovations still allowed the echo's of the past to remain quietly in the back ground. The upstairs eves bedroom was so very beautifully designed... every thing fitted so wonderfully into that space restricted area. However for me that dark green sitting area by the fireplace and the library of bookshelves stole the show... What a joy to sit there on a chilly winter eve.!

    What a perfect, homey, cozy cottage!! I especially love that kitchen remodel with the scullery/ mud room! That is so brilliantly done! And the staircase you chose, the room under the rafters, the inglenook fireplace, ... all so wonderful! AND THEN I see the final picture with this incredible tile!! What a finale!
