A modern rustic cottage

Such a charming converted cottage in Mousehole, Cornwall, built in the 1800s on 17th-century foundations. The house has been designed to look like a sea captain's lookout. The ever-changing landscape of the sea and sky of the region played a key role in its décor  giving the home a rustic coastal look and inspiring its colour palette. Tones of grey and stone have been teamed with white for a vintage take on the classic coastal look. 

The ceilings were removed to reveal the A-framed beams and the rooms immediately gained an incredible sense of space, coupled with a chic beach-hut feel. The furniture, lights and objects, most of which the owner has collected on his travels, mix well with new pieces made from scrap materials and a tried-and-tested paint method - layering a light shade over a dark shade and sanded through, give it a lovely patina. I wish there were pictures of the cottage's exterior; I bet it is just as beautiful as the interior.
