This is Lavender Cottage, a recent project which has just been sold on ebay. This is quite a big house for me. I usually stick to small cottages - one or two rooms at the most - so five rooms is a bit of a change. I wanted to create the feeling of a real house - one where you can look through and see another room beyond - so that's how the scullery came about. This cottage really is magical when the lights are on as you can see the oil lamp in the scullery shining through the kitchen door. I added one of Julie Lawton's wonderful house name signs on the front of the cottage and, of course the beautiful lavender plant from the very talented Marianne.
