Behind The Scenes: Cotswold Photo Shoot 2017


We absolutely fell head over heels in love with our latest location. Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, the creamy stone walls and multi textural backdrops called out to us and we knew our NEW A&J Sofa Collections would be at home here.

Making the most of natural picture lips, rough stone edges – that doubled nicely as shelving and uneven surfaces, Stylist Julie propped and placed her vintage image collection. From landscapes in peaceful sea greens to painterly floral brights, (with the odd nude interspersed for naughtiness!) – we love an A&J picture wall as the perfect backdrop to our designs.




The Wallace Collection took up residence in the dusky cottage style living room, with romantic timber beams and expanse of authentic Cotswold wall. Light swept in from chunky framed glass doors, across the wooly seat textures, revealing the soft woven feel of the fabric. Richly coloured Imogen looked great against the smooth nature of the limed timber walls and floor, the soft velvet contrasting beautifully with the calm backdrop. Emerald toned Hoxton found favour by the fire.

Light at this time of year can be incredibly challenging so we forged ahead and after indulging in a creamy scrambled egg breakfast, (best ever – thank you Jayne!) we cracked on, only stopping when the light had completely disappeared, by which time we could eat again.

This is our kind of cosy.
