This cottage is not only a great example of a Modern Country Flow-Through Dining Room but also of a wonderfully unified home. 

I've featured the dining area before but...woohoooo....have recently managed to track down the rest of the house for you. 

The three-bedroom cottage was a rather run-down fisherman's cottage when it was bought but has been converted into this beautiful Modern Country Home.

It is located in Scotland, near Angus (thanks, Dee!), and there are subtle nods to the Celtic location, including these highly original antler candelabras. 

The downstairs is entirely open-plan (bar the shower room, mercifully!) but has been thoughtfully set out to create different zones: living, dining and cooking.

The decor has been designed with the cottage's seaside location in mind.

Soft sandy tones, coupled with faded blues and weathered wood create a sophisticated look which is an eternity away from twee coastal knick-knacks.

It's this carefully limited colour palette which creates the feeling of harmony throughout. 

There are no jarring changes but softly flowing inter-related areas which gently draw the eye onwards.

The cottage is a great example of how new additions can add character; namely the wide oak floorboards, limestone tiles and cream Aga. 

Although they have all been recently added, there is no question that they add enormously to the cottages quirky charms.

Upstairs, the owner has removed the wall between the master bedroom and the bathroom to create a stunning en-suite. 

The bath is the Brunel model from Aston Matthews. Isn't she a stunner!

The cottage is a real winner in my book....the owner has pulled together old and new to create a really stunning home....and it's available to rent...tempted?!
