Living room
The striking mural in the living room echos the trees outside. The pattern took three weeks to carve onto the polystyrene. It was then painted by hand with resin.

Find similar black bookcases at Habitat and indoor/outdoor tiles at Mandarin Stone. Find linen curtain and blind fabric at The Natural Curtain Company.

Hallway
For oversized cushions, visit fatboy.com, then play with scale and texture by mixing in smaller neutral cushions from Dunelm Mill. Add your own luxe edge with fringing.

Kitchen

Mirrored tiles, wooden worktops and a slate floor ass the industrial feel to this kitchen-diner.

Bedroom
This mural is also hand-carved, but foliage-inspired wall stickers would achieve the look in an instant.

Bedroom storage
The antique panel, which features a list of cows’ names, their weight and ailments, is from a local market near Milan.

Bathroom

In the main bathroom, usual and inexpensive materials are blended to stunning effect. The basin was salvaged from a kindergarten, but Holloways of Ludlow sells a range of Belfast sinks that can be deck-mounted to achieve a similar look.
