the sunday nook {fireside}…

today we visit the olde bell, a coaching house in the village of hurley, & this cosy nook curated by one of my all-time favourite interior designers, ilse crawford from studio ilse

this is definitely on my list of places to stay &, when i do, i’ll be sure to give you the full run-down… but for now, let us breathe in the beauty of this perfectly-formed fireside nook…

whilst sympathetic to the building’s history {parts date back to 1135}, this retreat has been given a modern facelift… tactile materials such as linens & raw wood interplay beautifully with the existing exposed brickwork & ceiling beams to create a rustic yet elegant feel {not an easy combination to get right}…

a scattering of carefully-selected furnishings {including the obligatory wingback chair, a crudely constructed table & the angular backenzahn stool} combine with a muted palette to keep the look fresh & uncluttered… the result: a relaxed & inviting nook where texture & warmth abound…

all-in-all this is definitely somewhere i’d be happy to snuggle-up in any old day of the week…
