Willow Crossley's Home: House Tour

Situated in a tiny Cotswold village, author Willow Crossley's home is a mixture of Manor House and cottage, whilst the palette of understated muted colours she has chosen make my Modern Country heart beat a little faster.... Shall we take a house tour?

Come with me through this beautiful beamed porch, taking note of the hydrangea wreath on the front door...

At first glance, this room looks small and cosy but look again...see how teeny-tiny the sofas look in comparison to the fireplace. Willow Crossley has done a fantastic job at toning down the imposing double height ceiling, and creating a warm cottage-y vibe. The living room is painted in Farrow and Ball Pigeon.

The kitchen, with its bottle green Aga has units painted in Farrow and Ball's Elephant's Breath, and Willow has used Sanderson's Swallows wallpaper.

The family room leads off the kitchen (also decorated with Farrow and Ball Elephant's Breath paint)...can you spot the Cabbages and Roses cushions?

 and into the conservatory, strung with simple fairy lights...and a hot air balloon!

The gardens contains enormous yew topiary, and parterre, with an ancient well.

The mellow stone and rolling surrounding countryside remind me why I love living in the Cotswolds...

I walk past this beautiful house every single day with my dogs and kiddywinks - it looks as lovely inside as I imagined :) xx

A beautiful home - stuff of dreams. I agree that the home looks cosy and inviting and beautifully styled. The rustic tones, ornate features - like the stunning mirror over the fireplace and the careful choice of colours and upholstery has created a wonderful result.

How fun to see this beautiful home with a Christmas tree in it. When I am house hunting, the first thing I do when I enter a new home, is figure out where I would put a Christmas tree.

Fondly,
Glenda
