The four bed­rooms have very in­di­vid­ual looks. Three of them fea­ture a dado rail with Re­sene ‘Quar­ter Rice Cake’ on the lower third of the wall, and the dusky pink Re­sene ‘Brandy Rose’, warm beige Re­sene ‘Truf­fle’ and earthy green Re­sene ‘Linen’ on the top. In the fourth bed­room, Kirsty has paired Re­sene ‘Quar­ter Rice Cake’ with a blue Ei­jffin­ger wall­pa­per from Re­sene.

Dec­o­rat­ing is one of Kirsty’s pas­sions. “It’s some­thing I love to do, and – who knows? – maybe one day I will get around to do­ing a course in de­sign. It’s a hobby I love at the mo­ment.” She couldn’t have done it with­out the fab­u­lous painter David Price, she points out.

Now that the in­te­rior is com­plete, she is fo­cus­ing on wel­com­ing B&B guests to the home. “I spent 25 years in hos­pi­tal­ity and I have missed the peo­ple con­tact,” she says.
