Modern Country Living #5
The Chester Grey 5 Drawer Chest
Our handsome Chester Grey range is fast becoming a popular addition to the Cotswold Company Family. We think our Chester Grey chest would make a fine addition to any bedroom, so here are just a few things we love about this modern country look.
Cool Grey Finish
This beautifully smooth neutral grey finish will complement most interior styles. There are a multitude of grey finishes on the market, so if you ever need to get a swatch and there isn’t a wood sample available, this one is a very close match to the Farrow & Ball shade; Purbeck Stone.
The oak surface of this piece is not only a practical addition in terms of robustness but the warm tones of the oak give a nice balance to the cooler tones of the painted grey. The oak surface also provides the perfect punctuation to the expanse of grey on this chest.
Chic Silver Handles
These classic silver handles are timeless and easy to integrate into most schemes. However, if you ever want to make things a little more quirky, take a look at Anthropology’s range of handles and create a look that’s completely unique to your home. It’s a very inexpensive and low-risk way to add a bit of personality to your furniture.
5 Drawer Storage.
It’s lean and slender 5 drawer stack, packs in plenty of storage space while using minimal floor space. If the shape is perfect for you but the colour’s not quite right, you’ll find even more tall boys options here, there’s plenty of choice for a multitude of colour schemes.
Styling; Craspedia and Cacti
The calm grey of the Chester range allows you to add some fairly bold colours around your room without it looking too busy. We particularly love the mix of greeny blues from our cacti and wallpaper and the vibrant yellow of our craspidia. The use of blue and yellow together always seems to be a happy combination, maybe it’s just a simple reminder of a warm sunny day and clear blue sky.
Linen Upholstered Chair
If you’re thinking about investing in a dining set, this Light Oak Cream Linen Chair provides a really easy option for housing extra seating. Their neutral linen fabric allows them to sit just as comfortably in the bedroom as the dining area. They provide some great occasional bedroom seating or a home for your hat when they’re not in use as a dining chair.
Styling; Bold Vintage Wallpaper
We were lucky enough to find this vintage Laura Ashley wallpaper in our Cotswold Company home and thought it complemented the simple, grey tones of our Chester piece perfectly. If you’re ready to go bold with wallpaper and you love the arts and crafts style of this repetitive pattern, take a look at House Of Hackney for an amazing range of inspiring prints.
