swathes of Honesty Ready for some cosy images from a mini photo shoot we did an age ago now? These were for an issue of Simple things Magazine (it came out last Feb!). But Providence Cottage is definitely a winter house so I thought I would share some of the photos with you after the last dark and dreary few days. Where is that sun?!A cosy cabin style dining nookCosy Kent CottageThis little house is in Cranbrook, Kent. Owned by two of my favourite people ever. Once lived in by them and their tiny baby Edith. Now just about to be sold after a year or two as Airbnb hosts.Cosy Kent CottageCosy Kent CottageThey have long since moved – Edith is 9 and now has two sisters and a baby brother who simply could not be stowed away in this rustic gem! This is where just us grown-ups spent last New Years Eve, cosy around the fire, playing records, merrily eating and drinking.Rustic vintage style Simple furnishings and warm layers throughout the rooms with rugs, throws and sheepskins. Books to read and plenty of seating, which would you choose – the curvy fireside seat, the vintage sofa or the antique wooden chair?Rustic vintage style The dining nook has got to be one of the snuggliest places ever. Intimate for two, cosy for four! Tucked away from the light, the tiny window lets in beams of sunshine from the garden and mirrors reflect them on into the roomCosy Kent CottageRustic vintage styleWe just love this place, the kitchen is hand finished with rustic concrete worktops and vintage utensils for use hung up all over the place. Rustic vintage styleRustic vintage styleCosy Kent CottageAncient oak beams surround you like a sturdy hug in every room and soft light is cast down from above the worktops over tea making proceedings. The living room calls you back to get cosy by the fire and candlelit meals seem even more magical eaten here, somehow.Winter diner nookFireside livingRustic vintage style Cosy Kent Cottage Rustic vintage style Upstairs the bathroom is delightfully rustic and the main bedroom is all crumpled linen loveliness with wood trunks for storage. The residual warmth from the huge inglenook downstairs keeps the chill off and there is another small bedroom for a little one.Rustic vintage style Rustic vintage style We will be sad to no longer visit this lovely place but know the next owners will get to discover and enjoy all the cosy magic inside. Happy midweek, send sun if you have any? ;) Cosy Kent Cottage Cosy Kent Cottage
