fisherman's cottage


A traditional 19th century period property with a fresh contemporary twist, situated in delightful surroundings in the coastal town of Weymouth. Fisherman's Cottage needed a complete overhaul for its new life as a holiday home. Avoiding ubiquitous 'auqatic' imagery, we grounded the cottage within the landscape utilising a palette of colours from the landscape.

The cottage was featured in the “Coast Magazine” in 2011.

Quaintly nestled within a little lane, the cottage is painted in the softest grey blue alluding to its roots as a traditional fisherman's cottage.

Panelling was retained and walls whitewashed. New flooring was painted in Earthborn clay paint and softly distressed to a weathered patina.

Softness underfoot and textural elements help cosy up the rooms.

Photos of the harbour greet guests alongside original artworks by local artists.

Clotted cream kitchen cabinetry meld naturally with wooden counters and dining table.

Wall hooks add a note of colour in the hallway.

Well trod stairs convey centuries of wear and look beautiful with a rough wash of lime paint.

The earthy palette of neutrals creates a restful  and soothing abode for relaxing holiday slumber.

Deep sea blue projects the whitewashed bed, dressed in pinstripe linen, textural cushions and a woven ochre throw.
