Orchard Cottage

Orchard Cottage, Tarrant Monkton, Dorset

This was a lovely project to work on. Set in the grounds of my client’s own home this charming 3-bedroom thatched cottage needed bringing up to date for holiday rental purposes. The kitchen units were reconditioned and repainted, new tiling laid and a beautiful granite work surface installed. Every room was redecorated with Farrow & Ball paint, a new wool carpet was fitted, existing furniture reupholstered and lighting from Jim Lawrence brought a fresh glow to each room.  New curtains and blinds were hung using fabrics from Jane Churchill, Sanderson and Lewis & Wood and I had the pleasure of commissioning a local blacksmith to make some bespoke curtain poles. Two new bathrooms were installed including the ground floor room which also doubled as a utility space for visiting families. The finished result was a beautiful, period property enhanced by practical modern comforts.
