Here’s a country dining room with the wow factor – a space that’s full of natural texture, from the exposed stone wall to the beautiful beamed vaulted ceiling and wooden floor.
Such a setting demands a decorating scheme that epitomises honesty and simplicity and, here, the hero pieces are a cabinet with a mid-century modern feel, an industrial-style chair and artisan-crafted trestle table and ladderback chairs.
To soften the look, flowing curtain fabrics (Pure Willow Bough and Pure Strawberry Thief from the new Pure Morris collection by Morris & Co) in a pared-back, neutral palette have been incorporated. The collection, out at the end of June, takes its inspiration from the past and William Morris’ values of craftsmanship and iconic patterns to create a collection for modern living.
