Swirls of creams and whites anchored by heritage colors from Farrow and Ball complement the elegant architecture of antique beams and original stone walls dating back to the 1200's. The colors bring a sense of tranquility to this Dorset Manor House designed by Emma Sims of Sims Hilditch, a boutique interior design practice based near Bath, England, who's philosophy is Design to Enrich Our Everyday Life.
The design celebrates the traditional interior, while giving this family home modern, open, light-filled living areas, and a contemporary glazed garden room and kitchen. This allows the family to embrace open-plan living, a home where they choose to spend time with friends and family more so than ever before.
I love the perfectly English spaces with deep window sills, portieres, tufted ottomans, a mud room/laundry room with shelf space enough for a dozen Hunter boots, and the beautiful wallpaper by GP & J Baker and Sandberg. It's a home designed to LIVE in! Inspired by the perfect simple moments that make our homes havens - from catching up over coffee in a cozy kitchen to cuddling up on the sofa... Simple, Elegant and Embracing, and Perfectly English! Enjoy!
I hope it's lovely where you are...
