Romantic Holiday Cottage Interiors; The Nook, Sedgeford, North Norfolk.

I have been styling and photographing holiday cottages for a few years now, creating aspiration lifestyle imagery to showcase just how wonderful a stay away, in a fabulous cottage could be, but none have felt as emotionally attached as this one. The Nook in Sedgeford belongs to my closest friends, Jo and Damien. I met both Jo and Damien at separate workplaces and then played cupid to bring them together.

After 8 years of Jo and Damien waiting for me to provide them with a comfortable guest room, in my own home and after staying in many holiday cottages along the Norfolk coast, they finally decided to take the plunge and buy a North Norfolk bolt-hole and holiday cottage of their own. Although I cannot claim any credit for the overall interior design, I have happily joined in many conversations about how it would look and feel. Jo and Damien have done a cracking job, creating a small and cosy Norfolk holiday cottage with some lovely luxury touches – linen bedding, Roberts radios, wool blanket and Grind coffee machine to name but a few. Everything is provided for a romantic, stay-in and stay cosy break away, or equally a good base for exploring all the wonders that North Norfolk has to offer.

The Nook is in Sedgeford, a mere 5 miles to the coast and near to the pretty Norfolk villages of Doking and Snettisham. Hunstanton, Thornham, Brancaster and Burnham Market are all within easy reach too. Sedgeford itself is a pretty village with a pub, just a short walk from The Nook. If a café is more your cup of tea, The Old Store in Snettisham is a must-visit – the interior decor and vibe would be just as at home in the centre of Shoreditch as it is in the centre of Snettisham.

The minute I walked into The Nook, even before the interior was redesigned, I could see its appeal. It’s a small Norfolk cottage with both charm and character. Jo, as a serial decorator has added her magic touch, using earthy colours to reflect the colours of the surrounding Norfolk countryside. The Nook is furnished with vintage pieces and modern appliances. As a couple, Jo and Damien enjoy modern-day luxuries and are both well-versed in staying away in beautiful well-equipped places, so they knew exactly what needed to be done. With care and attention, they have transformed The Nook's interior into a romantic, comforting retreat for both themselves and their guests. Jo has used her signature style wallpaper mural in the bedroom and industrial touches throughout the cottage. They’ve created a cottage with a modern country industrial vibe.

I styled and photographed the Nook on a cold day in November. I stoked up the log burner and felt toasty within minutes. The low afternoon sun shone through the kitchen window all the way through into the living room. It was an unexpected surprise but one that I should expect from the beautiful county, which is Norfolk.
