Vintage cottage

I’m delighted to share some photographs today of one of my all time favourite homes. Katharine Peachey of Peachey Photography lives in Lime Tree Cottage in Greenwich and it is filled to the brim with her beautiful furniture and vintage finds.  In every corner there is something that grabs your attention or attracts the eye and she has an enviable ability to style her home in such a unique and organic way, which so many aspire to (including myself). Working with Katharine on home tours is an absolute delight as we ogle over amazing homes together and her genuine passion for interiors shines through (see a home tour we did together here).

Katharine has taken some shots of Lime Tree cottage herself; they are all from different days, seasons and times but they come together to create a beautiful, orignal collage. As always, her photography is stunning and all shot on film (find out why she shoots on film here), which lends itself so beautifully to her wonderful home. Enjoy and be inspired…

The cottage has a double reception room that leads onto a kitchen at the back of the house.

The kitchen is full of gorgeous vintage finds displayed for all to see, which gives the kitchen character and warmth.

Lovely original floorboards run throughout the downstairs of the cottage and there is a beautiful Ercol daybed in the sitting room (I have wanted one these for years!).

The bathroom is simple but still feels vintage with clever touches such as the hanging mirror and enamel soap dish.

    I can not tell you how refreshing both these photos and this interior are. I am so bored of looking at sterile, generic interiors in magazines – the homes are dull and the photography is boring. I love everything about how relaxed, unique and personal this home is and the photographs are so interesting; different light and composition. Truly wonderful.

      I’m so glad you think so, Gracey! I agreee – far too much of the same in magazines at times 🙂

    Wow! Delightful! What a good idea to use the 1950’s kitchen table as a desk. I keep on coming across them but already have a kitchen table. Might pinch that idea and use one for sewing machine.

      I like that idea too. Search for ‘formica kitchen table’ on eBay and they are really quite cheap x
