I’ve never seen a mix of such incompatible styles – rustic and offshore, but what a perfect combination! This is a renovated 19th century 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, and an adjoining, self-contained one-bedroom apartment. 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 home was inspired by the ever changing landscape of the sea and the sky proved to be an inspiration. Gray and stone tones were combined with white to give the classic coastal look a classic – the pitched roof complements the theme. The floor consists of scaffolding boards that have been washed with white spirit and sealed with wax oil.
