Thoughts of spring breaks and summer holidays can’t be far away now. And what could be better than a quaint country retreat nestled in an idyllic setting? This luxury cottage is perfect for romantic breaks and for those of us who love traditional charm with an extra edge, Pixie Nook certainly fits the bill. It’s a Cornish country cottage alright, but it is brimming with bohemian intrigue too.
Take a Look
At first sight this lovely cottage complete with a rambling rose over the doorway and a garden bursting with botanicals, might look like the quintessential rural retreat. But inside you’ll find jewel-like hues and vintage finds creating a modern bohemian vibe. This unique interior scheme would be cosy in winter hunkering down in front of the woodburner with a mug of hot chocolate, while in summer the outside hot tub enjoys sweeping views of the countryside.
Design Details to Note
Whitewashed stone walls paired with sumptuous velvet upholstery.
Brightly painted shutters that continue a blue theme thoughout each of the rooms.
Thrifted items that add interest to corners and a distinct boho feel.
Bright blue paint that covers the cabinets and continues up over the walls. Contrasting with a white panelled ceiling.
Three contemporary white pendant lights hanging over the worktop.
Open shelves instead of wall cabinets which would have crowded the space.
A table for two by the open door where it’s easy to transfer to the patio when the weather allows.
Rattan chairs paired with a blue topped table. The chairs are light and easily transferred to the garden.
A simple linen blind at the tiny window that does not obstruct light and that is in keeping with its setting.
Hanging plants and a glass pendant light hanging from a hook in the ceiling add decoration to this corner.
An extendable table is a practical solution to a small space.
The tiny entrance has a bench seat that is handy for pulling off boots.
Plus a mirror and a console table that designates this small corner as a transition space.
A plush velvet headboard and bedspread is just inviting you to take the morning slowly, or indeed have an early night.
The blue theme continues and so do the touches of yellow.
Both of which will brighten up dull days and keep the cottage looking fresh and inviting.
A free standing tub will always denote luxury and indulgence.
But put a shower over it and you have the best of both worlds.
A shower curtain is the perfect opportunity to add colour and pattern.
A handy shelf is in the perfect position for candles, toiletries, and a few decorative items.
Pixie Nook is available to rent via Unique Home Stays.
