Home on the Farm

In her mind's eye Caroline Cowan knew exactly how she wanted the.farmhouse that she and husband Rob bought four years ago to look once.she"d got her hands on it: "Sort of pretty shabby chic and rustic" she.explains casting her eye around their delightful home with its sugared almond.colour scheme cheerful florals and homely vintage finds. "But.pursuading Rob - who had always preferred a more masculine and.contemporary style - that this would be a good idea did take some doing!".Nevertheless she nicely - but firmly! - insisted that this should be her.special project: "We've always compromised on decor" she says "but I was.so sure of the look I wanted to achieve this time I wouldn"t be moved!".Perhaps one of the reasons her husband of 27 years agreed to let her take.charge of the 16th-century farmhouse"s decorwas because the style she so.confidently envisaged formed the basis of a much bigger plan that is now.part and parcel of life on their 22-acre farm near Tenterden in Kent. "We.wanted to find a farmhouse outbuildings and land that would allow us not.only to keep livestock but incorporate other ideas we had too - and most.importantly establish a rural wedding venue" Caroline explains. "The idea.was to create a nostalgic "Darling Buds of May" ambience in complete.contrast to smart formal celebrations - so my ideas for a home that also.embodied that approach seemed to make sense"".
