Jute rugs, antique wooden chests, raftered ceilings, striped wool blankets. Treverra Farm Cottage, a self-service guest house in Cornwall, is a sophisticated interpretation of the farmhouse look. Its "country chic" style somehow manages to feel traditional and modern at the same time.
In 2009, the cottage was renovated and expanded by Spencer Adams Architecture and Litchfield Design Interiors with Mackenzie Wheeler Architects. We love the way the design honors traditional English farmhouse architecture—whitewashed walls, stone and hardwood floors—while incorporating contemporary details like skylights, generous closets, and wall-mounted ceramic sinks.
This is a look that could translate well in a city apartment. If you're trying for this style at home, think about neutral walls, natural materials, and the occasional colorful textile. A few pitchers full of flowers won't hurt either.
Treverra Farm Cottage sleeps up to eight and is available for rental for £2,500 to £4,500. It sits on 14 acres with a pool and landscaped grounds.
