Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN NOTES -

The colours draw in the sur­round­ing land­scape, and the raw linen cur­tains cre­ate con­ti­nu­ity with the land­scape and trees out­side, which are a strong pres­ence in the in­te­rior be­cause of the glass wall that runs the length of the cot­tage. It’s a re­minder of the cot­tage’s con­nec­tion to na­ture, and, as Les­ley says, part of the de­sign to ‘tone down’ the in­te­ri­ors so as not to com­pete with the view.
