Bold Colors in a Charming English Cottage
In a charming village in the English county of Kent stands this lovely historic cottage. What sets this cottage apart from usual cottages is the use of bold colors in every room of the house.
The cottage isn’t big with a total floor area of 62 square meter (676 square ft.) and it has two bedrooms, one of which is now used as a second sitting room.
Each room has its own color scheme, from moody green to bright pink, and pastel blue. This blend of a traditional English cottage with bold use of color is absolutely amazing.
The ground floor sitting room is completely painted in a deep moody green shade. By also painting the ceiling this room transformed into a moody cocoon.
Two vintage leather club chairs sit in front of the fire, making this the perfect reading room.
The room also includes a small dining area with bold red dining chairs.
At the back of the house is the cottage kitchen. With white walls this is a lovely bright room but just like every room of this house they also used color in here.
The kitchen cabinets are painted in an olive green shade which is combined with a red and white checkerboard floor. There is no kitchen table but they did add a small breakfast bar next to the stove.
The old door on the right hides the staircase going up.
The first of two bedrooms is now a second sitting room. The room is certainly popping with bright pink walls and ceiling. Blue and pink furniture adds even more color to this room.
The second bedroom is located on the top floor, on one side the walls are painted in a pastel blue shade and on the other side they used a darker blue shade.
Despite the sloped ceilings and low ceilng height the room actually feels spacious and bright thanks to its windows on two walls.
Even the bathroom has a color accent with ochre yellow woodpaneling.
