I am delighted that our home is featured in the magazine Country Homes and Interiors and very chuffed that all the photos capture what we have been trying to create - turning our house from a typical rural 1980s bungalow (all tiny rooms, low ceilings and aluminium windows) into something more airy and light filed.
Thank you very much to Vivienne Ayres and Polly Eltes who made it all very easy.
Here are the photos
Our "big space" with the wonderful wood burning stove that was made for us by Steve Dowling - http://www.stevedowling.co.uk/dowlingstoves/index.html - I love his stoves so much that we have 3 of them.
I love that they used one of the Sanderson linen magnets that are on our fridge to hold up that bit about what is "On our doorstep".
It felt a bit exposed welcoming people "into" our home but everyone has been very kind. We were 6 years living in a much smaller space, a space that I made worse by over stuffing it with furniture that I kept buying when I saw it - 6 years planning for when we would be able to afford to change the house into somewhere we love living.
