The complete renovation of a Grade II listed Cornish Cottage
On the beautiful North Cornish coast, this Grade II Listed, five bedroom, four bathroom cottage is a sheer beauty.
Working closely with Lionpark Construction on their building services, I was privileged to project manage the interior architecture and design of this complete renovation to bring it up to a high level rental property.
My short brief from clients was to include a medley of styles, not knowing where the old met the new. Ideas that they mentioned included industrial, vintage and all using a neutral palette of greys and whites. With little involvement due to living out of county, they gave me plenty of free reign to explore what would work best in the cottage.
I set about creating a brand new scheme, communicating with clients via virtual mood boards in Pinterest.
The final result is a unique collection of old meets new, grey meets beige, vintage meets surf!
"We cannot praise Katie enough for the work she did for us on Ivy Cottage.
The house is completely transformed to such an extent we even considered moving in ourselves and not renting it out! She understood our wants and needs perfectly and considering we only met once at the start of the project the results are quite incredible. She has an eye for both finding and creating unique items, brilliant attention to detail and kept to budget without compromising on style or quality.
Katie is an interiors genius and we would have no hesitation in engaging her services on our next project. "
