As you’ve probably gathered by now, we’re undertaking a bit of a challenge, creating our perfect cottage in Hay. Friends and family, intrigued and curious, keep on asking for updates on our ‘project’. I can’t help but to find the word project slightly terrifying. Maybe it’s from school days, when the year would end with some giant assessment disguised as one. Or perhaps it’s from being glued to the endless reruns of Grand Designs on Channel 4. You know the ones, the happy young couple with the best intentions who end up with a mortgage the size of an Airbus A380 and restraining orders against each other.

So, with that slightly irrational fear in mind, it is with a mixed bag of emotions that we approach our very own project. There’s excitement, trepidation and definitely some concerns over our sanity. But, we know it will all be worth it in a few months time we will have turned it into the loveliest, homeliest, boutique cottage in hay.

We will try to give you a bit of an idea of what we’re hoping to achieve, where our inspirations are coming from and what styles we envisage working in the cottage. We’ll also be sure to share all the gory details, the frustrations and the surprise discoveries beneath the floorboards! It’s going to be quite the journey, we hope you can join us for the ride!
