This lovely 19th century Cornish cottage is the home of Becca and Damien who have lovingly updated it with an urban luxe twist inside a rustic shell.
Take a Look
Damien runs the UK’s first standalone zero waste barbershop, so both he and Becca were incredibly keen to have a kitchen that fit with their eco-credentials. For that reason they chose the Sebastian Cox Kitchen by deVOL. This range uses sustainable, underused British timber, felled using a technique called coppicing. Whilst the cupboards themselves incorporate traditional craft techniques and designs, such as weaving, sliding dovetail joints and a rough bandsawn finish. They are, of course, handmade in England and the final look is undeniably rustic but with a contemporary edge.
Alongside their Sebastian Cox kitchen, Becca and Damien also chose a deVOL Curiosity Cupboard from the Shaker range. The cupboards were all finished in the pale ‘Natural’ stain, so this standalone piece was a chance to inject some colour into the room. They chose ‘Printer’s Black’ outside and ‘Clerkenwell Blue’ inside. A perfect pairing that looked good next to the chalky terracotta floor.
Finally they finished their kitchen off with some beautiful accessories including an iconic aged brass tap with a copper tap insert, a handy hanging rail above the range cooker and a brass oval toggle switch. As always, it’s always the special little extras that really make a difference to a room.
Sebastian Cox Kitchens by deVOL are all handmade to order in England, prices start from £15,000.
