Country Living house tour

Aaah, welcome to a real Country home! 
I love this home, and I want to know what you think.

Paint can make or break a house. This is an example of a home where the colour palette really makes it a huge success. The owner says, "The house is earthy and dark. I like to play off the deep browns and greys with green and other light colours".

It works a treat!


The owners say they love Modern Country style
...and particularly a kind of vintage-industrial mix.


Don't you love the way they've blended old and new possessions to make this home absolutely their own Modern Country Style statement?


They've even filled their cupboards with gorgeous goodies!


Isn't this U-shaped bench awesome? Definitely just the place to sit whilst taking off your wellies after a lovely country walk.

Apparently, much of the house is painted in Ralph Lauren's Winchester paint, which the owner describes as a moody greenish grey that looks diffferent in every room and at different times of the day.


Now if that doesnt sound like a Modern Country Paint Colour then I'll happily eat my paintbrush!

This house was in a hideous state when the owners bought it but, as they gradually brought it back to life, they began to fall in love with its obvious charms and secluded position.


After a year of hard work, they decided to make their own home! Don't you love a happy ending!?

Love each and every room and the exterior. What a stunning home. I am drawn to industrial chic style and love the table and chair and all the cabinets.

Fantastic job by the homeowners.
