Beadboard panelling set on a diagonal breaks up the visual grid.
An energy-efficient Danish fireplace is nestled between two sitting areas, offering warmth and a comforting glow. This model gives off heat from the front and sides only, so there's no need for an unsightly protective panel in the back and wood can be stored underneath. Antique pine flooring and a sisal wool rug are timeless cottage classics.
