I’ve never seen a mix of such incompatible styles – rustic and coastal, but what a perfect combination! This is a renovated 1800s cottage in Mousehole, Cornwall, England. The house has 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms on the ground floor, a living room and kitchen on the first floor, plus an adjoining self-contained, one-bedroom holiday let flat. By removing the ceilings to expose the A-frame rafters, the living room immediately gained an incredible sense of space, coupled with a chic beach-hut feel. The color palette used in this house was inspired by the ever-changing landscape of the sea and sky proved inspiration. Tones of gray and stone have been teamed with white for a vintage take on the classic coastal look – the pitched roof adds to the theme. The flooring is made of scaffolding boards washed with white spirit and sealed with wax oil.
