Kate Moss comes to The Lakes
We’re immensely proud to introduce our latest designer: Kate Moss. She brings The Barnhouse an irresistible sense of retro-glamour.
One of the world’s great models, Kate Moss’s long-established love of The Cotswolds drew her to make The Lakes the site for her first ever interior design project. We’re delighted she’s chosen the estate to make this little bit of history.
Kate has restyled the interiors of the Barnhouse, complementing its traditional elegance with a vibrant, retro-glamour vision. It’s a fantastic combination.
The Barnhouse’s double height reception and spacious bedrooms which make it so well-suited for family life have been transformed by Kate’s witty take on country house living.
She has worked with David Haddock a West Country craftsman, to create bespoke furniture, including a David Bowie-inspired TV cabinet complete with steel thunderbolt. The house showcases signature artwork from Damien Hirst, the Chapmans and some of the most interesting artists working today. Meanwhile, bright pops of colour light up walls, furniture and furnishings.
One of the most delightful things about the house is how effortlessly Kate has blended its country roots with her contemporary styling. The kitchen’s slate counter top and its log burner which add so much to its sense of intimacy sit happily alongside shocking pink velvet Talisman sofas built on brass bases. And this easy mix of old and new makes the house a family home, rather than a fashion statement.
We’ll leave the last word to John Hitchcox, YOO’s Chairman and a long-term friend of Kate. “This home is a concealed treasure……an indulgence worth treasuring.”
The Barnhouse with interiors by Kate Moss’ is being marketed actively from September 27th. Prices start from £2.5 million for the five bedroom property. Please address all enquiries to: T +44 (0) 1367 250 066 E firstname.lastname@example.org
