“I truly believe that our homes are a reflection of ourselves. A beautiful home is not just a frivolous desire to acquire nice things, it is about our engagement with the things that make us happy, calm and productive. For me, home is the space I am truly myself. It has to be many things to me, which means it has to be functional, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful as well. In fact, I think surrounding yourself with beauty, whatever that means to you, is an act of self-care that can change your life.”

A designer’s own space is a beautiful source of inspiration and it’s no different with this cosy little kitchen diner by Sophie Rowell, founder of Côte de Folk. Perfectly imperfect, colourful and cozy it’s the quintessential Brit cottage with flair.
