Rose Cottage, the house bought by Sally and Rod, is larger than its name suggests. For a film director searching for a location in which to film Narnia, this large rambling stone property spread over three floors would doubtless be a hot contender. Surrounded by woodland and meadows, with beamed rooms and creaky, bumpy floorboards, open stone fireplaces and a cosy attic, they both decided it was the perfect character home for their four children and dog.Just before contracts were exchanged, an unexpected job offer with a well known local fabric company encouraged the couple to complete the deal. As Sally says, ‘I always loved Lewis & Wood designs and the offer of this new assignment was timely, exciting and irresistibly convenient. The head office was a few miles down the road.’For Sally her link with Lewis & Wood became the inspiration for the design of her interiors for their new home. ”I had always been unsure of using large scale wallpapers in this kind of property, ’ she admits. ‘But once I got past the fear barrier, these extra wide, very English wallpaper designs became my most effective transforming agent. They are look more like a hand painted mural than a standard paper.
