Steal This Look: English Cottage Entryway

August 23, 2010

Spotted on Light Locations: Ned’s Cottage, a 17th-century dwelling in Dulwich, SE London. We like the slate gray clapboard siding, the front door painted an unexpected shade of duck-egg blue, the contemporary house number and mail slot, and the simple stone slab as a threshold. Recreate the look with the following elements.
