Ryden Cottage by Nicola Slaney
Designer: Nicola Slaney
Stepping right back to where it all began for Maureen and Hugh as children in Worcestershire, designer, Nicola dug deep to reveal the quintessential cottage that Hugh grew up in. Next to the cottage sits a wooden chicken coop whilst heavily-laden fruit trees frame the red brick home. The tranquillity of this dwelling is evident through the design – a peaceful cottage reaping the rewards of the nearby River Avon and surrounding tributaries, wetlands, woods and meadows. Worcestershire will always hold a special place in Maureen and Hugh’s heart and this piece represents fond and happy memories for both of them.
