Sharing my Interiors inspiration

I am often asked where some of the reclaimed finds in the cottage were found. From battered copper lights to bronzed traditional radiators, oak carved panels and verdigris copper panels.  SO for all you lovers of interiors I’d like to share some of my favourite haunts for seeking out the odd and abandoned pieces that we found use for.

Its the little touches that makes for a home

Up in the eaves at Elsies is a perfect little haven, with oak frame, cute cottage windows, and the tent like shape of the room really makes this space feel like a cosy retreat.

When it came to decor, the inspiration came from the fabric, sourced by the Amazing Sarah Hope Interiors, which we used on the bed cushions and blinds (Anna French – Fairbanks)  the pinky hues greens and rust colours suited the tones in the house.

We cleaned up the elm floor and painted the walls  in a soft blush and a pale grey.(F&B sulking room pink and Ammonite)

I sourced the lighting from reclamation yards and Etsy. A cute little chandelier and the fun feather lampshades add to the romance.

The centre piece is a carved wooden panel – we found these in a reclamation yard (English Salvage. They really are stunning and you’ll see them in our Cornwall cottage as well.

Beside the bed are a stack of accounting ledgers bound in leather. Stacked they make a perfect table. These I sourced at a flea market – one of many held at the Three counties show ground run by B2B events 

Show me the light

Lighting is a love of mine.  It’s such a great way of showing your personality in a home.

Throughout Elsie’s there are many and varied lighting. From boho lampshades to industrial wall lights and contemporary highlights along with vintage finds.

In the picture above you’ll see a few different examples of these. They were sourced from flea markets, Etsy and local interiors shop Rhubarb .

In the kitchen are two copper light fittings found in the flea market. they are slightly battered which adds to their lovely colour.

The rust down lighters in the lounge are simple and throw a soft light across the room. Fairy lights on the ceiling highlight the peeling wallpaper remnants on the ceiling and a blown glass lamp adds a foal point.
