Black, Bold and Inspiring

Black, Bold and Inspiring

We're taking part in the Fall Cure and have been searching for lots of inspiration. The top of our inspiration pile comes from a magazine from the other side of the world, this months Living Etc and bizarrely it features a home only 10 minutes down the road from us.

Originally this country home was filled with florals, chintz upholstered furniture and plush carpets until it was bought by local landscape architect Rick Eckersley. This home was then stripped right back to the basics, with locally quarried stone laid throughout the house and feature walls painted in strong grays, black and crisp whites. Add in some iconic furniture mixed with antique and commissioned pieces all complimenting each other while holding their own in this bold space. Of course the exterior and garden on this home does not disappoint, painted matt black with splashes of colour. This home has inspired us to be braver when considering using black paint, maybe even magenta! See the full article here on Living Etc.
