Style inspiration from Tom Cox’s Oxfordshire farm cottage


DESIGN DETAILS


DISTINCTIVE EXTERIOR
Influenced by American and Flemish styles, the
outside of the house has been artfully reimagined to
include painted cedar cladding and discreet limestone
rendered elevations, creating a softer, more natural
finish. Handmade bluestone sills and bespoke doors
and windows painted in a dark-green shade from
the RAL colour chart add the finishing touches.

WHERE TO SOURCETIMBER DOORS
When it comes to giving your home’s exterior an authentic
rustic feel, you can’t beat the look and feel of real wood.

ART ILLUMINATION


Tom likes to create the unexpected in a kitchen


setting. Using brass picture lights above abstract


artwork adds depth and gives a modern edge to a


traditional scheme. The bright orange painting here



  • T.S. Wasteby Brad Teodoruk – contrasts with the


classic units by Hám Interiors, painted in Fired


Earth’s Cobble, bringing the room to life.


WHERE TO SOURCEPICTURE LIGHTS
A brass fixture like the one in Tom’s kitchen, which is
available to order from Hám Interiors, has timeless appeal.
