Vin­tage style...

Build It - - READERS’ HOMES -

Get­ting an au­then­tic look was key for the Martins. Suc­cess re­lied on skil­ful co­or­di­na­tion of prod­ucts, fin­ishes and colours. Lib­erty took dec­o­ra­tive cues from her choice of ex­te­rior ma­te­ri­als, such as the crafts­man-made door fur­ni­ture, cast-iron guttering and tim­ber cladding – all durable op­tions that will weather with a patina of age. In­ter­nally, the mood is set by painted ex­posed beams and the stone fire­place. Pol­ished oak floor­boards and vin­tage wooden fur­ni­ture add warmth and tex­ture. e Shaker kitchen cab­i­nets and is­land com­bine with the wood work­tops, while clas­sic iron­mon­gery fea­tures on the in­ter­nal doors and key pieces, such as the kitchen side­board. A palette of her­itage colours – from Far­row & Ball and John­stones – has been used to paint walls and se­lected fur­ni­ture. Tra­di­tional light fit­tings and fab­rics in tar­tan and chintz pat­terns pro­vide the fin­ish­ing touches.
