A winter sanctuary from the cold we paired weighty natural fibers with substantial wood beams and built-ins to evoke the solace and comfort of a traditional English cottage. When the homeowner’s aren’t away at their summer abode, luxe mohair and silk upholstered chairs and thick woolen sofas and rugs harken the couple to nestle into their wintry hideaway. A layered metal table and earthy stone fireplace center the living space without compromising the softness of the home’s warmer textiles and hues.
A sophisticated yet relaxed breakfast table and window seat were designed for casual dining in proximity to a light-bathed sunroom. Furnishing the home with an elegant mix of earth tones and spring-like traces of color, the erudite couple winters the cold season in style, optimism and ease.
