White & Wood

Feb 07, 2019

Brought back to life is this 18th century weavers’ cottage in Wiltshire. The new owners saw the diamond that was very rough indeed when they purchased it, and with the eye of a trained conservation architect and a relationship counselor as their day-to-day professions, the multiple year project was quite successful.

The above master bedroom was once two rooms. Removing a wall and brightening the space with a light-inviting sophisticated whitewash, white linens and tufted chaise lounge, the 17th century oak table, along with the Chippendale pair of chairs serving as bedside tables and exposed beams above work together simply, but perfectly to create a calm, tranquil space for slumber.

This space reminds me that less is more so long as we know what works well together, and we refrain from welcoming too much into a space. With only two hues so-to-speak – white and wood – to work with, the decision making becomes easier. Now the task asks of us to be patient and wait for the piece of furniture that will complement and sing in the space.
