If I died and went to vintage grey heaven…

18 Jun

…there’s a strong possibility I’d end up here:

Hope House describes itself as ‘straight from the pages of an interiors magazine’ and given that this charming former fisherman’s cottage belongs to top-notch interiors photographer Paul Massey, it was never going to be long before that was the case.

As well as starring in the June issue of Living etc and being rented out as a photo shoot location, the good news is that Hope House is a holiday let too, meaning that everyone can have a taste of living here. Or rather, everyone with £2,000 a week to spare, that is!

Really, there’s nothing more to say because there isn’t a single thing about this house that I don’t think is utterly perfect. The white and grey interior furnished with vintage finds is beautiful and comfortable at the same time; the Grade II listed building itself (a C17th net loft) is full of charm and character, and the location on the quayside in the pretty Cornish fishing village of Mousehole is right up my cobbled street.

I hope you love Hope House as much as I do!

    I LOVE THIS! Letting the textures add the interest. Love when a room is kept neutral colour wise. Grey and white is decorating heaven :)

    Love it all! Gorgeous shades of faded vintage without being overly “shabby”.

    There is a part of me that says we none of us should like this as it is so basic but there is a bigger part of me that really likes it. Thanks!
