Want to tour a beautiful Cornish home that’s packed to the rafters with stunning secondhand furniture? Yes? Great, dive on in!
There’s not much to update on our search for a home, I’m afraid. We’ve found a house that we love but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be a straightforward purchase (are they ever?!). So while we impatiently wait to hear whether our bank will approve a mortgage on it or not we’re holding our breath and crossing our fingers and hoping for the best. And, ahem, looking at interior design sites to get ideas for our future house, whether it’s that one or a different one.
Whilst browsing some of favourite interior sites, I came across this beautiful Cornish home of Dai and Rosie Hughes and fell in love. Like the other homes I’ve featured in the past, Dai and Rosie have focused heavily on secondhand furniture: from family heirlooms to eBay, car boot, charity shop, and vintage shop finds to furnish their home with stunning effect.
I’m particularly enamoured with their bedroom – the bed is just beautiful! It reminds me of the bed I slept in at my granny’s house.
The Living Room
Their living room looks like a real cosy family-oriented space. Look at that fire!
And their kitchen even features units made from old tea chests, as well as a gorgeous retro Formica table:
Finally, I have a lot of love for their allotment garden! Do you think they will let me move into their lovely home?!
