    Spring was just so last week… With the weather reverting to damp, overcast and windy conditions, we thought we’d fire the imagination with this inspired space. The oak beams that give this kitchen-diner its rustic flavour cleverly provide storage for firewood too, meaning it always looks nice and cosy. Add a blossom-patterned wall and verdant green furniture and the mood remains upbeat. Every cloud has its silver lining and having to spend more time in here when it’s wet outside is definitely one.

What is surprising is just how well it fits in with the rest of the eclectic scheme – a geometric-pattern rug and cushion, a pretty in-laid console with candelabra and a classically gold-framed Vermeer painting, no less. Just one pop of colour setting the tone and lifting the mood. Artfully done.
