Case Study: Yew Tree Cottage
Yew Tree Cottage
Introducing Yew Tree Cottage – a picture-perfect Thatch cottage, set against the idyllic backdrop of the Cotswolds.
There are many reasons why we wanted to share Yew Tree Cottage with you, most of them obvious – from the stunning 17th Century Cottage itself, to the beautiful collection of antiques. It’s a chocolate box cottage with a treasure trove of beautiful objects, an absolute treat to explore.
The antiques themselves have been carefully curated by the fortunate custodians of Yew Tree Cottage Karen and Anthony, who also happen to be the owners of Anton&K antiques. Specialising in Swedish, Belgian and French antiques, they know only too well how to create balance and harmony between mixed mediums and genres.
Masters in the art of balancing the new and the old, it’s interesting to see how Anthony and Karen have used this same mastery when choosing their ironmongery. From the pleasingly organic curves of the Beeswax Bean Thumb-latch to the authentically aged handmade Avon Antique pewter lever handle – every piece has been chosen with the utmost consideration of balance and aesthetics in mind.
And, let’s not forget the kitchen. The kitchen at Yew Tree Cottage cleverly blurs the lines between contemporary chic and classic country cottage. It’s simple form and quaker-esque aesthetic give it an unfussy appeal that is elevated by the door, window and kitchen cabinet ironmongery. Whilst the pewter and aged-brass finishes, bridge the gap between the unique antique lighting and the essential brushed chrome utilities of the fridge and range cooker.
