Nestled in the idyllic landscape of the English Cotswolds, Mahnee’s grade II listed house looks like it could have been plucked straight out of 'The Holiday'. A classic cottage in its proportions, designer Mahnee takes advantage of the cosy space with primitive wooden tables, lots of wonderful textiles, and of course, some colourful tufts of Yonder rugs (she currently owns 6 to date!) A new addition to the family, we also can’t get over the family's fluffy new pup, who totally camouflages into Mahnee’s Yonder Beni Ourain rug.
Over the past year of being confined to our own homes, taking a peek into someone else's is a welcome escape from our own four walls. Take a look at Mahnee’s beautiful house below.
"Our grade II listed house, near Stow on the Wold in the Cotswolds, was built in the 1700’s and added onto in the 1800’s, 1950’s and 2000’s. It’s a mix of cottage, village house and contemporary. It’s got the wonderful features of a cottage, like beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and cozy window seats, but also tall mullion windows and lofty rooms.'"
"When buying our house, it was important for us to find an older property because we love the history and aesthetic, but also to preserve and look after these incredible pieces of the past. "
I am a seamstress, pattern maker and designer with a heavy focus on vintage and handmade textiles, so it’s no surprise that I fell in love with Yonder Living’s gorgeous rugs when buying for our new home.
Each rug is totally unique and looks perfectly at home in any space. Our new puppy is almost completely camouflaged on our Beni rug in the living room!
