The Woodhouse

The Holloways design team was commissioned to design the interior for The Woodhouse, the show home for oak frame building specialists Oakwrights. Nestled in the rolling Herefordshire countryside and flooded with natural light, Annie Blackledge and her team created a stunning contemporary country living scheme in every room, from the farmhouse kitchen to the living spaces, bathrooms to the bedrooms.

"The showhome was always going to be beautiful," said Oakwrights' founder Tim Crump. "But I wanted to match its structural elegance with a show stopping interior. I knew exactly who to ask to facilitate that transformation – a local company committed to our values of quality, integrity, sustainability and community. It had to be Holloways."

Canterbury sofa and Balmoral wing chair

In the open-plan sitting room, Annie and her team created a seamless transition between this and the rest of the generous living spaces. Canterbury sofas and a Canterbury loveseat in Ember Oyster complemented a custom-painted Chichester coffee table and Chichester side table from Neptune by Holloways. A Balmoral wing chair, upholstered in Clarke & Clarke's Hatfield Chambray fabric, sits at the bottom of the floating staircase and conveys contemporary country style at its best. 

Ian Mankin curtains

Flowing through to the dining space, a green wall with a custom-painted oak-topped dresser brings the outdoors in through huge French doors flanked by custom-made curtains in a sage green Ian Mankin Embroidered Union Fern fabric. An Ian Mankin runner in Vintage Stripe Slate teams with scatter cushions in the same stripe, while a pair of Neptune pendant lightsagain from Neptune by Holloways, illuminates this family space as the heart of the home.

Ian Mankin stripe blinds

In the kitchen, Roman blinds in a smart ticking stripe – Hopsack Stripe Sage by Ian Mankin – picking up the verdant green of the walls, are as beautiful as they are practical. A solid oak dining table, taking its nod from the wealth of oak beams, takes pride of place. Similar pendants, like the one above the island, are available from Neptune by Holloways.

Blakeney Blue bedroom

In the master bedroom, with breathtaking views across the valley, Annie suggested a feature wall in Neptune's rich Blakeney Blue emulsion, colour-matching the accent colour with soft furnishings and the upholstery on the Trafalgar armchairs – the elephant fabric is now sadly discontinued, but a similar fabric is available from Iliv. Above the bed, the Buckingham round mirror in a soft off-white adds a fresh contrast to the oak-framed windows and oak floor, while the striking Juno recycled rug treads as softly on the planet as it feels under foot.

Outside, an outdoor casual dining set – the Sicilian, now discontinued – nestles by the pond and numerous water features. Similar garden furniture corner sets include the Fairford, the Monterey, complete with fire pit, and Chedworth.
