The dream of many is an English cottage. These historic homes are full of charm, historic elements, and they look extremely cozy. In the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, stands this extremely charming English cottage with colorful accents.
This asymmetric 18th-century cottage has a timber frame, and these old beams are also visible in the interiors of the home. The wooden beams add so much charm to the wonky spaces, and they are paired with colorful walls and cozy decor.
The owners sensitively restored the cottage and added a warm and rich color palette to the historic rooms. At the back of the house is a lovely cottage garden with a garden shed that would be perfect as a quiet work place.
The cottage has a little snug that is now used as a living room. The charming room with wooden beams has a colorful striped rug and the walls are painted in ‘Pimlico Green’ by Fenwick and Tilbrook.
The dining room is painted in ‘Picture Gallery Red’ by Farrow and Ball.
The cozy dining room is defined by the house’s original wooden frame. At the center of the room sits a large brick inglenook fireplace, complete with a wood burner and an original bread oven.
At the back of the house is charming cottage kitchen with a brick floor and kitchen cabinets painted in ‘Sudbury Yellow’ by Farrow and Ball.
The sink sits in front of the window with a view of the cottage garden.
The small bathroom is also wonderfully bold with raspberry pink bead and butt paneling wrapping the walls and inset bathtub.
The house has two bedrooms on the first floor. Even here they added color accents with green painted wooden floorboards.
