This stunning property located just outside Cambridge has been featured multiple times, first in the Ideal Home magazine in February 2016 and most recently on Houzz. Whilst both features focused on the kitchen, I’d like to focus on its lovely conservatory, which is actually an extension of this open plan kitchen. Below, I’ll explain how I achieved a functional shabby chic look in this space.
Since this conservatory is joined with a beautiful shabby chic kitchen, it was important there was a colour scheme, feel, and look continuity. The space is mainly used for chilling out, reading books and enjoying beautiful outdoors you can see below.
To achieve that flow we used the same natural limestone floor, reupholstered sofa in a soft blue fabric and threw some scattered cushions that tie in with the existing colour scheme in the kitchen.
We also ensure we specified a rug in the coordinate colour. We also used the same scarab fabric which was used to make a curtain in the kitchen to make blackout roman blinds for the conservatory windows. One important element was a traditional style radiator with daisies which was painted French grey colour from Farrow & Ball palette. Lanterns and a few favourite objects complement the shabby chic style.
